Jan. 5, 2013 at 11:37 PM

GREEN BAY, Wis., Jan. 5 (UPI) -- Aaron Rodgers tossed for 274 yards with a touchdown Saturday and the Green Bay Packers dispatched Minnesota 24-10 in an NFC wild card playoff game.

Rodgers completed 23-of-33 passes and threw a TD pass to John Kuhn, who also scored on the ground for the Packers.

Green Bay now moves on to play at San Francisco next week.

Ten Green Bay receivers made a catch against the Minnesota defense, setting an NFL playoff record as the Packers avenged a loss to the Vikings in last week's regular-season finale.

The Vikings played the contest without quarterback Christian Ponder, who was placed on the inactive list shortly before the game with a sore throwing elbow.

Backup Joe Webb started and was inconsistent, completing 11-of-30 passes for 180 yards, an interception and a touchdown.

NFL MVP candidate Adrian Peterson was limited to 99 rushing yards on 22 carries for Minnesota.
