Jordan Love’s opening debut was a day the Packers lost and lost


What happened Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium was a loss for the Packers organization. They snapped their seven-game winning streak with a loss to a Chiefs team that continues to look like a shell of the dynamic group that made it to two consecutive Super Bowls. And Jordan Love, the quarterback they traded for in the first round of the 2020 draft, struggled in his starting debut.

All that said, it would be a mistake to judge Love on a performance, in far less than ideal circumstances – on the road in one of the toughest places to play in the NFL, with just one day of practice with Davante. Adams and in the midst of the maelstrom revolving around the team due to how Aaron Rodgers handled his decision not to get vaccinated against COVID-19. It’s also worth noting that while many pointed to Kansas City’s defensive stats as reason to be optimistic about Love, the Chiefs’ defense has given up a lot of yards this season, but it’s still a tough unit to make a debit given its ability to bomb and disguise.
