Throwback Thursday: Browns use late stand to fend off Packers in 2005

On crisp September day in front of 70,000 fans at Lambeau Field, the Browns topped the Brett Favre and the Packers, 26-24, in 2005.

And as the Browns on Thursday make their second trip to Green Bay since then, we're looking back at that win for this week's Throwback Thursday.

After building a lead, Cleveland needed late defensive stand to ward off the charging Packers, who scored 17 fourth-quarter points.

It wasn't enough, however, to overcome an impressive offensive performance from the Browns as former quarterback Trent Dilfer passed for 336 yards and three touchdowns on 21-of-32 attempts. Former receiver Braylon Edwards caught three passes for 107 yards and one touchdown and Steve Heiden snagged six balls for 104 yards and two scores. The victory — Cleveland's first at Lambeau since 1956 — was also buoyed by a defense that forced Favre into two interceptions.​​
