Green Bay Packers Quarterback Jordan Love Has Shown Massive Improvement Over the Last Two Weeks, and a Huge Test Awaits on Thanksgiving Day Against the Detroit Lions
It was great that Love was able to have his career high in passing yards against the second-worst defense in the NFL entering Sunday. Love needs to repeat what he did on Sunday on a short week on the road against a divisional rival. The last time Love faced Detroit this season, he completed 23-of-36 passes for 246 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions.
If he is able to play well for the third consecutive game against a quality opponent, then the Packers may have something moving forward with Jordan Love. Green Bay currently owns the ninth overall pick in the 2024 NFL Draft. They could build around Love for the future. It appears as if his first half slumps are over but time will tell.
