NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE ; Rodgers-Manning Headlines NFL's Wild-Card Weekend


Maaddi, Rob, Charleston Gazette Mail


Aaron Rodgers vs. Eli Manning will headline the NFL's wild-card weekend.

Rodgers tossed four touchdown passes to help the Green Bay Packers capture the NFC North title with a 31-24 victory over the Detroit Lions on Sunday night. The Packers (10-6) will host the Giants (11-5) next Sunday while the Lions (9-7) visit Seattle (10-5- 1) on Saturday night. New York's 19-10 win at Washington eliminated the Redskins (8-7-1) and allowed the Packers and Lions to secure playoff spots before their game kicked off.
