The Green Bay Packers shook off a slow start as they went on to a 35-18 win over the Washington Redskins at Fedex Field in the final Wild Card playoff game of the weekend.
The Redskins jumped to a quick lead 5-0 with a safety, followed by a field goal. A touchdown early in the 2nd gave them an 11-0 lead. But a missed extra point seemed to change the momentum as the Packers went on to score 17 unanswered points and took a 17-11 lead into the half.
The Redskins regained the lead with a touchdown drive to open the 2nd half but could not stop the Packers as they scored on the next drive and never relinqueshed the lead.
The Packers will travel to Arizona next weekend.
