Browns Vs. Packers: Rookie Brandon Weeden Preps For Lambeau Experience

After completing just three of nine passes with an interception in his preseason debut, Browns rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden will hope to take the next step in Thursday night's game with the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field.

With Dom Capers' Packers defense expected to toss a variety of different zone blitzes at the not-so-young 28-year-old, the Browns have tried to simulate exactly what he'll see during practice. The results, so far, have been promising.

"I've got a feel for what we're doing," said Weeden on Wednesday, before expressing angst over his poor play in his team's opener.

"It's never as good as you think it is and it's never as bad as you think it is," Weeden said of his 3-for-9 performance. "I'm excited to get back out there and correct the mistakes I made last week."

The Browns are expecting Weeden to play close to a full half against the Packers, which should provide the former Oklahoma State star ample time to get comfortable inside the confines of Green Bay's historic stadium.
