Tune in at 8:00 PM ET as the Vikings take on the Packers. Gino Bottero will be liveblogging for your enjoyment.
Welcome everyone! I'll be live blogging tonight's Wildcard playoff game between the Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings.
Some big injury news so let's get right to that. Christian Ponder is INACTIVE tonight. Joe Webb will start at quarterback for the Vikings.
Joe Webb will be making his third career start at quarterback. Webb has not thrown a pass this season.
Ponder's injury stems from a hit by Morgan Burnett in the team's Week 17 game against Green Bay.
James Starks is INACTIVE for Green Bay. DuJuan Harris is expected to start at running back for the Packers.
Adrian Peterson rushed for 2,097 yards this season, the second-most all-time.
In two games against Green Bay this season, Peterson rushed for 409 yards. 339 of those yards came on 41 carries when Jerome Felton was on the field as Peterson's lead-blocker.
The Packers have lost four of their last six playoff games at Lambeau Field.
Aaron Rodgers has thrown 21 touchdowns in his last seven games against the Vikings.
Thanks for joining the conversation. Should be a good game tonight.
Looking forward to what should be a good game tonight.
Did anyone think the key to this game was Christian Ponder? The keys for the Vikings are the same as they were before: a big performance from Peterson and a bigger performance from their pass rushers.
