Green Bay Packers
GREEN BAY, Wis. The Packers are moving on. The most important part of this game was doing just that, no matter how it happened. In the single-elimination postseason format, Green Bay couldn't afford to slip up against the division rival Minnesota Vikings. But, aside from an early 3-0 deficit, the Packers were in control throughout the vast majority of the game and advanced to the divisional round of the postseason.
Handing out grades following the Packers' 24-10 win over the Vikings:
Passing Offense: A-minus
Aaron Rodgers wasn't able to take many shots downfield, but he made nearly all of the right throws. And, when given a few chances, even in tight coverage windows, Rodgers made a couple passes that only an elite quarterback could execute.
Rodgers completed 23 of his 33 attempts for 274 yards with one touchdown pass and no interceptions, finishing with a 104.9 passer rating.
Rodgers' top targets were wide receiver Greg Jennings and running back DuJuan Harris,...

Prior to Saturday night's Vikings-Packers playoff game, it was reported that alcohol sales at Lambeau Field were to be cut off early, hoping to curtail any potential mischief.
A lot of good that did.
The Green Bay Press-Gazette reports that a "season-high" 21 people were arrested during the Packers' 24-10 win. The previous high was 18.

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Packers first-year running back DuJuan Harris claims he doesn't care about statistics. If he did care, Harris would like the way the box score looked for him after Green Bay's 24-10 playoff win Saturday night over the Minnesota Vikings.
Harris finished with 100 total yards, running for 47 yards and catching five passes for 53 yards. That was only seven...
GREEN BAY, Wis. Step one is complete on the Packers' road to the Super Bowl, winning at home Saturday night over the Minnesota Vikings. Now their journey is about to become significantly more challenging with the well-rested San Francisco 49ers awaiting Green Bay's arrival for the divisional round matchup next weekend.
But this all looks relatively familiar to Packers coach...
It wasn't Ryan Grant, Alex Green or even Aaron Rodgers who led the Packers' rushing attack, it was DuJuan Harris. Harris rushed for 47 yards and a score and caught five balls for 53 yards for 16 fantasy points.Fantasy Spin:Harris didn't get his first carry until Week 14, but it appears that he is the running back to have going forward. He'll face a very tough 49ers...
Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers showed how dangerous they can be when they're at full strength Saturday night, overwhelming the Minnesota Vikings 24-10 in an NFC wild-card game that was never really close.
John Kuhn scored two touchdowns, DuJuan Harris added another and Rodgers connected with an NFL playoff-record 10 receivers as he threw for 274 yards. Defensively,...
After John Kuhn scored his second touchdown of the night, NBC focused on some mongoloid Packers fans celebrating in the crowd. Including in the shot was a Vikings fan doing that thing when he pretends to rub his cheek but really gives you the finger. Because searching for naughty language and gestures might be the only reason to watch the second half of this game.

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The Packers were confident they were going to stop Adrian Peterson in Saturday's playoff rematch with the Minnesota Vikings. Based on the results of the two regular-season games against the NFL's best running back, that seemed like a long shot.
But, with improved tackling and better gap control, the Packers held Peterson who had 409 rushing yards combined...
Being a leader and one of the team's playoff captains is nice, but Charles Woodson wants to be much more than that in these playoffs. Returning from a nine-game layoff, Woodson helped a defensive turnaround that kept Adrian Peterson in check.

This is the battle everyone was hoping for when the season started, it started in Week 1 when the 49ers edged out Green Bay in Lambeau 30-22. Now just 18 weeks later Packers QB Aaron Rodgers returns home to the...
The Packers were able to keep drives alive with a short passing game and Aaron Rodgers extending plays. In the minds of Vikings defenders, that was a major difference-maker.
The NFL Wildcard game at Lambeau Field last evening between the Green Bay Packers and the Minnesota Vikings unfolded a bit differently than expected.

The 49ers stepped into the prime-time spotlight last January as playoff neophytes who had not participated in the postseason in almost a decade. This time around, as San Francisco prepares to host the Green Bay Packers on Saturday night to begin Final Four Weekend in the NFC playoffs, the Niners are a battle-tested bunch whose playoff mission is Super Bowl or bust.
