Scoring plays from Saturday night's NFC wild-card playoff game between the Green Bay Packers and the Minnesota Vikings at Lambeau Field. The Packers won 24-10.

Minnesota 3 0 0 7 — 10
Green Bay 7 10 7 0 — 24

First quarter

Vikings 3, Packers 0

Blair Walsh, 33-yard field goal, 9:26.

Keys: With Christian Ponder out with an elbow injury, scrambling backup Joe Webb and Adrian Peterson were responsible for eight consecutive runs. Both of Webb’s efforts came off the option, including a 17-yard run on third-and-3 from the Vikings’ 39.

Drive: 10 plays, 53 yards, 5:34.

Packers 7, Vikings 3

DuJuan Harris, 9-yard run (Mason Crosby kick), 0:28.

Keys: After dropping a third-and-1 checkdown from Rodgers on the first series, Harris was involved in seven of the drive’s 11 plays, including a 16-yard screen and 12-yard pass from Rodgers to keep the drive moving. Harris’ touchdown originally was ruled down at the 1, but overturned after the Packers challenged.

Drive: 11 plays, 82 yards, 5:43.

Second quarter

Packers 10, Vikings 3

Crosby, 20-yard field goal, 3:25.

Keys: Rodgers’ consecutive completions reached nine on the drive, including a 32-yard pass to Greg Jennings near the sideline on fourth-and-5 from the Vikings’ 34 that brought the ball to the Minnesota 2. John Kuhn was stuffed twice on draws while Jermichael Finley had a drop in the end zone en route to the field goal.

Drive: 11 plays, 72 yards, 5:01.

Packers 17, Vikings 3

Kuhn, 3-yard run (Crosby kick), 0:38.

Keys: The Packers needed only five plays for their third score after a pair of 20-plus completions to Jordy Nelson, who came in on the last two drives of the half. After getting stuffed twice, Kuhn made good on a third goal-line rush for the score.

Drive: 5 plays, 62 yards, 1:10.

Third quarter

Packers 24, Vikings 3

Kuhn, 9-yard pass from Rodgers (Crosby kick), 9:25.

Keys: The Packers’ offense scored on their third consecutive drive when Kuhn blew into the end zone off the short pass from Rodgers. It came one play after the Vikings had 12 men on the field for what would have been a 33-yard field goal for Crosby on fourth-and-4.

Drive: 12 plays, 80 plays, 5:35.

Fourth quarter

Packers 24, Vikings 10

Michael Jenkins, 50-yard pass from Webb (Walsh kick), 3:39.

Keys: The play after Webb hit Jenkins on a quick slant for a first down, the Packers’ secondary lost Jenkins on an easy, wide-open 50-yard completion from Webb with linebacker A.J. Hawk being the only Packers defender nearby in pursuit.

Drive: 3 plays, 66 yards, 0:36.

Attendance: 71,548.
