GREEN BAY - The Green Bay Packers are hoping for a quicker start at home Saturday night.
In Week 17, the Vikings scored 10 points against the Packers in the first quarter at the Metrodome. And then kicker Blair Walsh added another 3 points in the second quarter before the green and gold got on the board.
Heading into wild card weekend, quarterback Aaron Rodgers is looking to control the tempo of the game and is asking fans to get rowdy.
"Two parts, starting fast. We spotted them 13 points, had three real poor drives to start the game. Then getting our crowd into it. We're calling on our fans this week to be that 12th man and to be real loud from the get-go. It's going to be a cold night game. But you win your division so you can get a home playoff game, so we need our fans to be real loud on Saturday and give us that advantage," said Rodgers.
