The Green Bay Packers will face the Minnesota Vikings for the second straight week, this time in an NFC Wild Card contest at Lambeau Field, as the two clubs square off in the postseason for just the second time in the 52-year history of the series.
The only other playoff meeting between the division rivals also came in a Wild Card contest at Lambeau Field when the Packers hosted the Vikings in the 2004 season (Jan. 9, 2005).
This will be the first meeting in the history of the series (since 1961) where both teams entered the game with 10-plus victories.
It will mark the sixth time that Green Bay has faced a divisional opponent in the postseason since the league went to a divisional format in 1967. The Packers have a 4-1 mark (.800) in those games, which is tied for the No. 2 winning percentage in the NFL among teams with three or more playoff games against divisional opponents behind only Pittsburgh (9-0).
