Charles Woodson isn't talking rocket science, it was simple to him and his defensive teammates, stop Adrian Peterson. In basketball, it's the box and 1, for baseball it's the intentional walk, and in football it's 8 men in the box. Great players demand special attention, and Saturday night the Green Packers defense which had been torched in two regular season games by Peterson, were determined to stop AP. "No disrespect to Ponder, but bringing a guy into the box is not about Christian Ponder, it's about one guy and that's Adrian Peterson," Woodson told Jason Wilde of ESPNWisconsin.com via NFL.com. "Our main focus, we knew whether it was Ponder or Webb, was to keep 28 from getting off. And if we were going to keep him from getting off, put the ball in the quarterback's hands, whatever quarterback it was, we felt good about what was going to happen." The Packers held Peterson to 99 yards on the ground after Clay Matthews promised during the week that Peterson would not repeat his Week 17 heroics. After gaining 199 and 210 in the previous two games vs. Green Bay. It was only the 2nd time in the last 11 games that he was held under 100 yards. Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers stated: "Our defense played great," Rodgers said. "Our defense tonight played at a championship level and that's what you need in the playoffs."       var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});
