Redskins-Packers set for Wild Card round

Cousins vs. Rodgers. Kerrigan vs. Matthews. Redskins vs. Packers. That's the matchup for Washington in its first playoff game since 2012.

No doubletake required. The Discount Doublecheck guy is coming to town.

After clinching the NFC East title last week the Washington Redskins' situation was clear except for one major point: The opponent. That's settled now as tthe Green Bay Packers, led by quarterback Aaron Rodgers, will face the Redskins Sunday at 4:40 p.m. in the Wild Card round of the NFL playoffs. 

The Packers' 20-13 home loss Sunday night against the Minnesota Vikings automatically meant Green Bay (10-6) would face Washington as the No. 5 seed.

The Redskins, the fourth seed in the NFC, wrapped up the regular season with a 34-23 win Sunday afternoon over the Cowboys. Washington reached the playoffs for the first time since 2012.

Minnesota, the NFC North champions and No. 3 seed, will host the Seattle Seahawks. Carolina and Arizona, the top seeds, receive a first-round bye.

Green Bay trailed 20-3, but pulled within one score late. Then this happened...
