Jordan Love, in his second season with the Green Bay Packers, has shown signs of mastering their offense despite modest numbers.
Jordan Love is a quarterback for the Green Bay Packers and the backup to Aaron Rodgers.
His 61.1 rating was worse than the 69.5 clip he posted in Week 9 last fall when he also went 0-for-5 on third downs and threw an interception while under pressure by Jamal Adams, who then picked off another pass from Love later in that game.
The Packers lost a lot more ground than just these numbers, however. They fell to 1-3 with their first loss in Week 3 at home against Washington, setting up the long trip across the country to face a Kansas City team that had their number last year when they beat them twice (including a 34-point shellacking on national television).
The good news for Green Bay is that its offense looks much improved this preseason compared to last year’s version, which looked lost without Aaron Rodgers as its quarterback
The Packers got on the scoreboard with an 11-play, 83-yard drive that ended with a 24-yard touchdown run from Tyler Goodson and included three offensive penalties inside the 10-yard line, preventing a touchdown
Love also threw an interception in overtime against Kansas City but he also ran for 57 yards on four carries – including an 18-yard scamper into Chiefs territory – and hit wide receiver James Washington with his final pass attempt
Jordan Love is the Packers’ new quarterback. And there’s a good chance that he’ll be starting in Week 1 against the Atlanta Falcons.
Love completed 15 of 24 passes for 136 yards, one touchdown, and no interceptions while playing into the third quarter against the Detroit Lions on Saturday night at Lambeau Field. He scored on a 2-yard run by running back
The Green Bay Packer’s first-round draft pick was a little shaky at times, but he showed some signs of progress with his decision-making and accuracy. He also threw two touchdown passes and ran for another score during their 31-28 loss to the Detroit Lions on Saturday night at Lambeau Field.
“I’m not where I need to be yet,” said Love, who completed 15 of 24 pass attempts for 136 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions while playing into the third quarter against the Detroit Lions on Saturday night at Lambeau Field
Jordan Love has had an up-and-down training camp so far. The Green Bay Packers’ new rookie quarterback has yet to play in a preseason game this summer, but he’s done enough in practice to make some noise as he pushes for a roster spot.
During Sunday’s closed practice at Lambeau Field, Love was tested by some of the best pass rushers on the defense. He finished with a combined 93 yards passing and rushing on 10 completions, which included a 16-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Jamaal Williams.
The bulk of Jordan Love’s production came during one drive in which he completed 7-of-10 passes for 95 yards and two touchdowns. The seven completions went to six different pass catchers, including tight end Jimmy Graham twice and wide receiver Davante Adams once each.
The Green Bay Packers have been fortunate that they were able to get their hands on another young talent in the most recent NFL draft.
The way that this draft pick is going, even though he is only a backup, he is sure to progress into a great starting quarterback.
Jordan Love was drafted by the Packers in the fifth round of this year’s NFL draft. The former Oregon Ducks star has been one of the most talked about players due to his impressive career at Oregon, where he played for three years before he entered the NFL draft.
The Packers were able to use their fifth-round pick on Love as they look to rebuild their offense after finishing last season with just two wins. They currently hold the No. 5 overall pick in next year’s draft and may be looking at Love again if he continues to perform well.
