The Green Bay Packers (10–6) visit the Washington Redskins (9–7) in an NFC wild-card game on Sunday.

The Packers, seeded fifth, took one of the wild card spots after falling to the Vikings in Week 17, ceding the NFC North title and home field advantage. Aaron Rodgers quarterbacks the Packers into the postseason for the seventh straight year. Green Bay has lost two straight games and has struggled to score points recently, but its playoff-tested group should enter fully prepared. After an injury-wracked campaign that began with the loss of Jordy Nelson in the preseason, the Packers are back again and will look to take advantage of arguably the weakest of the four NFC division champions.

The Redskins came out on top of a watered-down division but ended the season on a four-game win streak, scoring an impressive 121 points in that span. Kirk Cousins, in his first full season as a starter, has boasted a hot hand of late, throwing for 11 touchdowns and no interceptions in his past three games. Washington went from last place in the NFC East in 2014 to first and has a chance to win its first playoff game since 2005.
