GREEN BAY, WI (WSAU) - The Green Bay Packers advanced in the playoffs with a 24-10 victory over the visiting Minnesota Vikings Saturday night.
The Packers benefited from having all of their primary receivers available except Donald Driver, and by having Charles Woodson back in the defense after a nine week absence. Woodson said the difference between last week's meeting with the Vikings and this game was, "This week, we made the tackles. That was the difference."
The Packers defense held Vikings running back Adrian Petersen to 99 yards, and second string quarterback Joe Webb had a good first drive but was not very effective the rest of the game.
Aaron Rodgers was 23 out of 33 in passing for 274 yards and one touchdown with no interceptions. Rodgers complimented the Green Bay defense and said offensively, they still have things to work on before the San Francisco 49ers game next Saturday night.
In the Packers win, Rodgers set an NFL playoffs record by throwing to ten different receivers during the game.
