Packers headed to SF after 24-10 win over Vikings

GREEEN BAY–The Packers have advanced to a rematch with the San Francisco 49ers, thanks to a 24-10 win over the Minnesota Vikings on Saturday night at Lambeau Field.

Green Bay rebounded from a season-ending loss to the Vikings to advance to the divisional round of the NFC playoffs. The Packers opened the season with a 30-22 loss to the 49ers at Lambeau Field, in a game in which the 49ers were dominant. The two teams will meet at Candlestick Park at 7 p.m. CT next Saturday.

Saturday night’s wild-card round playoff win over the Vikings was aided by the loss of starting quarterback Christian Ponder to an elbow injury he sustained in the win over the Packers last week. His replacement, Joe Webb, completed just 11 of 30 passes for 180 yards, one touchdown and one interception. Webb had passed for only 61 yards until a late-game touchdown drive.

Rushing champion Adrian Peterson rushed for 99 yards. The absence of a passing attack by the Vikings allowed the Packers defense to focus its efforts on stopping Peterson, holding him to half his production of the other two games against the Packers this season.

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers completed 23 of 33 passes for 274 yards. Ten Packers receivers caught passes. Running back DuJuan Harris, who opened the scoring for the Packers by running nine yards for a touchdown, led the Packers with five receptions for 53 yards. Harris also rushed 17 times for 47 yards.
