Recap

The Green Bay Packers sacked Jay Cutler six times and intercepted him twice - including once deep in their own territory in the last minute of the game – to hold on for a 10-3 victory Sunday at Lambeau Field and clinch the final playoff spot in the NFC.

Green Bay (10-6) held the Bears to 227 total yards and shut them out in the second half, twice intercepting Cutler to thwart potential scoring drives.

The Packers will play at No. 3 seed Philadelphia next Sunday in the wild card round.

Charlie Peprah picked off Cutler in the end zone in the third quarter, and Nick Collins' interception at the 10-yard line sealed the win for the Packers, whose victory eliminated the New York Giants and Tampa Bay Buccaneers from playoff contention.

The Packers' offense was quiet for most of the day too, but a pair of long passes from Aaron Rodgers to Greg Jennings set up scoring drives in the second half.

The duo hooked up for 33 yards to set up Mason Crosby's tying 23-yard field goal in the third quarter, and a 46-yard connection led to Rodgers' 1-yard touchdown pass to Donald Lee for the go-ahead score with 12:42 left.

Rodgers finished 19 for 28 for 229 yards with one touchdown and one interception.

Cutler was 21 for 39 for 168 yards with two interceptions. Matt Forte rushed for 91 yards on 15 carries and caught eight passes for 60 yards for the NFC North champion Bears (11-5), who will have a first-round bye in the playoffs.
