All eyes were on Green Bay Packers quarterback Jordan Love on Sunday night as he took the field for the first time as Green Bay’s new QB1. To add even more pressure to the 24-year-old, he had to make his debut against none other than the Packers’ fiercest rivals, the Chicago Bears.
Green Bay Packers’ Jordan Love ‘Feels Great’ About QB1 Debut
Amid all the expectations, Jordan Love came in and put in a tremendous performance in his first game. He didn’t exactly produce a Super Bowl-winning performance in his QB1 debut, but he did more than enough to lead Green Bay to a massive 38-20 victory over the Bears.
After the game, the 2020 first-round pick spoke out about his outing in Chicago, and to no one’s surprise, Love was clearly delighted with the win:
“It feels great,” Love said, via Bill Huber of SI. “Obviously, that was the plan for us, coming in here and starting the season off the right way, and I think we did that in all phases. The second half for us was huge today, and you could just feel that momentum switching. It just feels good to get a win. You can never take it for granted, so to start a season off like that feels great.”
Love finished with 15-of-27 completed passes for 245 yards. He logged three touchdowns and had zero interceptions. It was exactly what Green Bay fans were hoping for in their first contest in the post-Aaron Rodgers.
Now that the first-game jitters are out of the way, Jordan Love can now focus on doing everything he can to lead the Packers to a winning season. Next up for Love and Co. is a Week 2 matchup against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday, and you can be sure that a lot of attention is going to be focused on Love yet again.
