GREEN BAY, Wis. (WSAW) -The NFC playoffs will go through Lambeau Field for the second straight year, as the Packers clinch the top seed in the conference with a 37-10 victory over the Vikings. Green Bay receives the only bye in the NFC.

After a slow start with only three points in the first quarter, the Green Bay offense came alive in the second. Aaron Rodgers threw touchdown passes to Allen Lazard and Davante Adams to give the Pack a 20-3 halftime lead.

The second half was the AJ Dillon show, as the big running back scored touchdowns from 4 and 7 yards out.

The Packers defense stifled a Minnesota offense playing without starting quarterback Kirk Cousins (COVID-19), with backup Sean Mannion struggling to get anything going throughout the game. Green Bay held Vikings star running back Dalvin Cook to just 13 scrimmage yards.

Green Bay finishes the regular season in Detroit next week with the luxury of having the option to rest key players if they want to, including Rodgers dealing with his broken toe.
