The Browns visit the Packers at Lambeau Field on Thursday night for their second NFL preseason game.

The Cleveland Browns will be facing their second consecutive NFC North foe of the preseason on Thursday night as they visit the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field. Coming off a 19-17 victory over the Detroit Lions at Ford Field last week, the Browns are looking to knock off a second consecutive 2011 playoff team as they tune up for the regular season.

According to Andy Baskin of ABC5, Cleveland's starters are expected to play into the third quarter, an unusually large of amount of playing time for the first-team in an early preseason game. The Browns play their regular season Week 1 foe, the Philadelphia Eagles, next week, and they don't want to show too much of their first-team in that game.

With the additional playing time, expect all eyes to be watching quarterback Brandon Weeden on Thursday after a lackluster preseason debut against Detroit. The 2012 first-round pick completed just 3-of-9 passes for 62 yards with one interception against the Lions, so he'll need to do better if he wants to maintain his status as starter.
