The Packers beat the Minnesota Vikings 24-10 in their Wild Card Playoff Game to advance to the next round against San Francisco. Green Bay’s defense completely dominated the meager passing attack of back up quarterback Joe Webb who started for an injured Christian Ponder. Webb went 11-30 for 180 yards and one touchdown with one interception. Without an effective passing game, the Packer’s defense focused on shutting down running back Adrian Peterson and it worked as they held the star a sub 100 yard performance (99 yards on 22 carries).
On offense, quarterback Aaron Rodgers was very efficient completing 22 of 33 passes for 274 yards and 1 touchdown. There was no stand out receiver in the game for the Green Bay Packers, Rodgers threw completions to 10 different players and really spread the ball around. Fullback John Kuhn scored two touchdowns, one on the ground and one via the air.
Green Bay now gets the chance to avenge their Week 1 lost to San Francisco. In that game, Niners running back Frank Gore racked up 112 yards and 1 touchdown on 16 carries in the win while quarterback Alex Smith went 20-26 for 211 yards and 2 touchdowns. Smith will not be the started in the rematch, quarterback Colin Kaepernick will get the start against the Packers in this 2013 NFL Playoff Divisional game.
