January 6, 2013 Updated Jan 6, 2013 at 4:51 PM CDT

Green Bay, WI (NNCNOW.com) --- John Kuhn rushed for a touchdown and caught another on Saturday night as the Green Bay Packers earned a 24-10 win over the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC playoffs.

Aaron Rodgers finished 23-of-33 passing for 274 yards and a score, completing passes to 10 different Green Bay receivers in the winning effort.

Joe Webb started at quarterback for Minnesota, a result of Christian Ponder being declared inactive with an elbow injury suffered in the Vikings' home win against Green Bay in the final week of the regular season.

Webb finished 11-of-30 passing for 180 yards and a score, which came late in the fourth quarter with the game already all but decided in Green Bay's favor.

Adrian Peterson carried 22 times for Minnesota, gaining 99 yards but failing to get in the end zone in the losing effort.

Green Bay advances in the NFC playoffs and next week will play #2-seeded San Francisco. That game is set for a 7:00 p.m. start on Jan. 12.
