Packers FB John Kuhn Makes the Vikings Pay in Green Bay’s 24-10 Win Over the Vikings [Video Highlights]



The Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers are playing for the second time in two weeks, only this time is in the first round of the NFL playoffs. Another huge difference in this game is Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder will not be starting (shoulder injury) behind center for Minnesota, it will be backup Joe Webb who has not taken a snap all year. This was due to be a interesting game. 


In his first start of the season Joe Webb drove the Vikings down the field using his ability to get outside the pocket to make plays, setting up a early field goal chance for Minnesota.

[UPDATE: Joe Webb has found a little room to pass as he hits TE Kyle Rudolph for a first down, leading the Vikings into Green Bay territory.
