GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers showed how dangerous they can be when they’re at full strength Saturday night. The Packers overwhelmed the Minnesota Vikings 24-10 in an NFC wild-card game that sent Green Bay to the next round of the divisional playoffs at San Francisco.


HOUSTON (AP) — It wasn’t pretty, but the Houston Texans will take it. Arian Foster ran for 140 yards and a touchdown, and the Texans used a stifling defense for a 19-13 win over the Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC wild-card playoff game to advance to play at New England next weekend.


BALTIMORE (AP) — The final two wild card games kick off Sunday. The Baltimore Ravens are hosting Indianapolis in the first game, a homecoming for Colts coach Chuck Pagano, who is making his first appearance in the postseason after being sidelined most of the regular season while undergoing treatment for leukemia.


LANDOVER, Md. (AP) — The Washington Redskins are hosting their first home playoff game since 1999 when they play Seattle in an  NFC wild card game. It’s a battle of rookie quarterbacks with the Redskins led by their outstanding first-year signal-caller Robert Griffin III and the Seahawks led by Russell Wilson, who’s had a great first season as well.
