The Green Bay Packers got a huge victory against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday night. A big part of the victory was the play of Jordan Love. He was fantastic tonight showing off his arsenal of skills and put up big points on a good Chiefs’ defense. This game was significant for Love. His first career start was at Arrowhead Stadium against the Chiefs and he didn’t play particularly well. After the game, Love revealed that he had been looking forward to this game for a long time.
Jordan Love on exorcising that first career start vs. Chiefs: "It's huge. I've had this game circled for a long time. It was my first start. Obviously, didn't play like I wanted to my first game. So to be able to get the victory is huge."

Green Bay Packers Jordan Love On What Victory Means
While this is a huge victory for the team overall, it is a huge victory for Love. He talked about it in a postgame interview.
“It’s huge. I’ve had this game circled for a long time. It was my first start. Obviously, didn’t play like I wanted to my first game. So to be able to get the victory is huge.”
Not many people gave the Packers a chance in this game. The entire NBC crew picked the Chiefs but the Packers showed that they can hang with the league’s elite teams. It probably is a monkey off Love’s back to be able to play so well against the team that he struggled against a couple of years ago.
Love And The Offense Clicking At The Right Time
Three weeks ago, this offense looked disjointed, messy, and downright bad. It has been some transformation in a short time. The offense has a great balance of run and pass. Love and the receivers can pick up chunk plays when needed. Matt LaFleur is calling misdirection plays at the right time. While there are still young player mistakes, the offense looks a lot better. It couldn’t come at a better time. The Packers have a soft schedule the rest of the way and already they are in the playoff picture. If they keep this winning streak up, they could find themselves in the postseason.
It cannot be overstated how huge of a win this is for the Green Bay Packers and Jordan Love. This team’s confidence is growing and you can see it on the field.
