The Packers were 2-5 and people were already giving up on Love.
He was very hesitant to throw the ball deep and trust his instincts when he had the pass the ball.
Love relied heavily on the run game and short passes, hoping his receivers would be able to get yards after the catch.
Jordan Love Lets it Rip
This all changed against the Steelers.
Even though he threw multiple interceptions, he was told to “let it rip”.
That theme of letting it rip continued against the Los Angeles Chargers and the Detroit Lions.
In both games Love took care of the ball and has thrown no interceptions.
Love has also thrown for 8 touchdowns in the last month.
The Packers offense in general has stepped up as well.
Rolling into December
The Packers finished the month of November with a 3-1 record and now have a chance at the playoff heading in to the month of December.
This is a huge difference from a couple weeks ago when fans and analysts were looking forward to next year’s draft.
A lot of that can be contributed to the play of Jordan Love the last 3 weeks of the season.
Yes, the defense has stepped up, especially against the Lions last Thursday.
But before it was just the defense trying desperately to hold opposing offenses to under 20 points.
While they were able to do that, it was the offense that struggled to put points on the board.
In the past couple of weeks, we’ve seen all three phases of the team work.
In other words, the Packers are playing complementary football.
If Love and the offense can keep this momentum going.
And if the rookies on offense keep developing, the Packers could sneak their way into the playoffs.
All this after a 2-5 start, pretty impressive for a very young Packers team.——————
