NFC Wildcard Playoffs Live Thread - Vikings at Packers

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

The NFL Wildcard playoffs are here. Join us to discuss all the game action as the Green Bay Packers host the Minnesota Vikings, the third time this year the two teams have faced off.

NFL Wildcard Weekend continues tonight with two teams facing off for the third time this season. In Week 13, the Green Bay Packers beat the visiting Minnesota Vikings 23-14. Last weekend, the teams faced off again in a Week 17 season finale, with the Packers looking to claim a first round bye in the playoffs, while the Vikings were looking to claim a playoff berth. Minnesota won the game 37-34, forcing the third, and decisive match up this weekend.

The Packers and Vikings return to Lambeau Field tonight for their Wild Card Weekend contest.

Quarterback Joe Webb will start for the Vikings tonight. Christian Ponder is out after injuring his throwing arm last week. Webb has not thrown a pass all year.
