Packers headed to SF after 24-10 win over Vikings

Posted by Vic Ketchman, editor on January 5, 2013 – 10:03 pm


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.

    Too many 3 plays and out in the fourth quarter. They have to figure out how to close out a game much more effectively. Nice win

    You’re right, it was so horrible that he protected and guarenteed our victory by running the clock and forcing an inept Viking offense to try and win the game against a superior defense.

    Gosh, you should be coach as you know so much more than him and how to correctly operate the Packer offense!

    The whole point of that style is to make the Vikings beat us with superior play – which was evident that they couldn’t do. True, it’s a bit boring, but strategically it just about guarentees a win.

    Maybe you have a different definition of “closing out the game”, but “closing out the game” for me is winning the game. Not to mention, we won by two scores.

    I’ll pick McCarthy over you any day.

    Why would he keep dropping Rodgers back to keep getting hit instead of trying to run the ball like he did. McCarthy called a very good game. You just cant cheer on your team can you? Just always have to find something wrong 10 mins after the games over. Enjoy the win.

    For the next two games we have to put up with Troy Aikeebreakeeman’s total BS and bias against the Packers…..please oh please don’t let that loser call the game.

    Hey americantinsiberia,

    Leave those guys alone. They’re offering constructive criticism to see this team improve next week. Not only are they playing a superior defensive team in SF, but now that have a consistent QB, GB needs to almost play perfect to advance.

    I’d pick constructive criticism over momentary victory. Is this about winning a playoff game or the super bowl, you tell me?

  20. By mark on Jan 5, 2013 | Reply

    The point is to make first downs and not give them the ball back. With 3 plays and a punt you aren’t doing that.

    Can’t believe people complaining about the “way” we won.. You can’t be serious. There’s no need to keep the gas on against an offense that can’t get out of its own way. Let the guys get some rest; we have to play a real team in their house next week.

  30. By MIpackerbacker on Jan 5, 2013 | Reply

    More three and outs in the 4th quarter when they were already up by 21 and the Vikings not even looking like they could form a coherent thought involving a comeback? I’m sorry, by that point in the game I was just enjoying watching the team play. I have no doubt that they will do everything they can to prepare for the 49ers. The Packers need to play four solid quarters to be SF and McCarthy knows this. Have faith in your team. In McCarthy We Trust…Go Pack Go!!!

    I’m with you Larry, I really don’t know why Packers let Vikings hang around. With that many turnovers, Packers should have scored more, instead they just ran the ball more and punt.

    Right. I believe the Packers were up by 21 against the Colts. And lost. The game is not over until time runs out. The point is to make the time run out when you are winning.

    Packers had a solid but take-it-sort-of-easy win tonight. Now they’ll be going to SF to play a team with a real defense that’s going to make them work and make them tired. If 9ers have Justin Smith playing, look to see Rogers scrambling, a lot. They have a week to develop a better running game, a stronger offensive line, and a better run defense. I wish them the best. As Rogers indicated after the game tonight, it’s going to be a challenge.

    Hey Ryan,

    First and foremost, it would be great to see a 70 to 0 game. It would be the sign of a truly dominant team that shows little weakness, like the 49ers and the Seahawks. I would rather see that instead of heart attack close games that usually end at the wire with disappointment. Then, I could actually get something done on Sundays without having to worry about running to my television. I not only want to see this team win, but win with a dominant performance 80% of this game is mental. Tell me would you like to have an opponent that fears you, or thinks they have a chance? You tell me. By the way, GB should be scared next week. They’re going into lion’s den versus an intimidating and dominant defense.

    Woodson was key tonight. Twice early, I saw him just throw himself face-first at AP in a gap, throwing the rhythm off and letting other guys getting there.

    And, it looked to me that all the DBs were just throwing themselves, trying to get last weeks’ stink off them.. and it worked.

    omg more dumb comments by GBConscience please stop commenting on here you are a depressing packer fan who isn’t pleased with any win. When the Pack won the superbowl during the 2010 season almost every game except for the Atalanta game was a nail biter that’s the reality of this game its a tough league for tough players now stop it

    Even Rodgers admitted that there were things that needed improvement, that they needed to more effectively put away an opponent like that one once they got the lead, etc. Some of us fans simply want the Pack to be more than a one-and-done playoff team.

    Against a QB like the one they faced tonight, it should have been over in the first quarter with no 50-yard TD surrendered late while everyone’s sleeping on the D.

    I remember in Jerry Kramer’s book how he described what Vince Lombardi called a “good” win: 35-0. A good playoff win: 42-0, rising for special occasions. The way I see it, this team can be much, much better, but always seem to make some of the same correctible mistakes, such as getting a late start, not converting several third downs, running backwards, etc. And we still couldn’t sack the other QB more than they sacked Rodgers.

    I’m happy with the win, but I want a championship, not just a playoff win against some guy who just stepped in off the street that any college team could have dominated. I want the Packers to be a FORCE. And if we lose, I sure the heck don’t want it to happen because we ran out of challenges or timeouts due to our own confusion.

    Um, love the comments about how McCarthy’s playcalling sucked in the second half…Really? It’s called burn the clock mode. Of course I would love to see the Packers run two running plays and then converted on third down and continue to march down the field and milk all the clock, but often the Packers can’t run that effectively. Did it get the job done? Yes! Of course that playcalling won’t work in a tighter game. If McCarthy called a game like that in a tight game, his head would need to be examined, but this was BURN OUT THE CLOCK MODE!!! Com’on People, pay attention to the game!

    Another comment that always riles me. Why are these professional players not DOING THEIR JOBS? They are paid millions! They are trying to do their jobs! Very few guys are out their just going through the motions (Randy Moss tended to do just that). Remember, there are 11 guys on the other side DOING THEIR OWN JOBS to disrupt the JOB of the other side. So to say a player isn’t doing his job is kind of ridiculous. Obviously this is a performance based job, so they are judged by the result, but to say they aren’t showing up and trying is a little too far.

    Right Martin . . . you argue your own point. Convert on 3rd downs. Unfortunately, we had four, almost five 3 plays and punt in a row. So I say . .C’mon Martin pay attention to the game! THAT IS NOT BURN THE CLOCK OUT MODE, GETTING FIRST DOWNS AND KEEPING CONTROL OF THE BALL . . . IS. If the opposing team gets another possession it could mean 7 pts. We gave the Vikings at least 4 extra, unnecessary possessions. Fortunately, they didn’t score 28 pts.
