MINNEAPOLIS – The Green Bay Packers will host a playoff rematch against the Minnesota Vikings at 7 p.m. Saturday night, the league announced.
Here’s the schedule for the wild card and divisional rounds. In the divisional round, the lowest remaining seed will play at the No. 1 seed and the best remaining seed will play at the No. 2 seed. So, in the Packers’ case, as the No. 3 seed, if they beat the Vikings, they’d face the NFC’s No. 2 seed, which is San Francisco. That game would be at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 12, at San Francisco.
