Vikings vs. Packers: Minnesota's Biggest Winners and Losers from Wild-Card Game

The Minnesota Vikings' season ended in Green Bay Saturday night, losing 24-10 to the Packers in a game that was never in doubt after the first quarter.

The biggest news from Saturday's game happened a few hours before, when Minnesota announced that Joe Webb would start at quarterback after Christian Ponder tested out his throwing elbow before the game and it was decided he couldn't play.

It was clear to the Packers early on that Adrian Peterson was the only Vikings offensive player who could do any damage to them, and they did a pretty good job of bottling Peterson up—holding him under 100 yards after he had run for 409 yards in two games against them in December.

For the Vikings, the season ends on a deflating note, but the simple fact that they made the playoffs just a year after finishing 3-13 is a major accomplishment.

We take a look at the Vikings' biggest winners and losers following their season-ending loss to the Packers.
