At 1-1 after the first two weeks of the new season, the Green Bay Packers are far from the best side in the NFL. This team has shown a lot of promise in their first two games in the post-Aaron Rodgers era, but at the same time, there’s also no denying that they will need to show significant improvements before the experts start seeing the Packers as a legitimate threat to the title this year.
Green Bay Packers Reigns Supreme in Red-Zone TD Efficiency
Be that as it may, one particular stat has Green Bay reigning supreme across the entire league. As pointed out by PFF GB Packers on Twitter, this team is currently ranked No. 1 overall in their red-zone TD efficiency over the first two weeks of the campaign:
The Packers rank 1st in red-zone TD efficiency this season (5/6, 83.3%)
They ranked 23rd in the same category in 2022

The fact that the Packers have gone 5-of-6 this season when inside their opponent’s 20-yard line is a very impressive stat. However, what’s even more inspiring here is that Green Bay has made a significant jump from being ranked 23rd overall in this same category last season.
I can already hear the naysayers arguing that it’s just been two weeks. While this is true, we still need to give credit where it is due. If the Packers keep on playing like this, then they might just surprise more than a few folks out there.
Jordan Love Integral to Green Bay Packers’ Early-Season Success
Talking about giving credit, Jordan Love has got to take a ton of it at this point. While Green Bay’s new QB1 will probably deflect the credit to his teammates, the fact remains that this young man has been integral to his team’s success through two weeks.
1-1 isn’t exactly worth writing home about, but at the same time, Green Bay could have been in a far worse position had it not been for Jordan Love. In his first two games, the 24-year-old has completed 29-of-52 passes for 396 yards and no less than six touchdowns. At this rate, Love is going to make it much easier for Cheeseheads to move on from Aaron Rodgers.
