Jordan Love Impresses as Packers Wrap Up Preseason with a Win
Green Bay, WI – The Green Bay Packers wrapped up their preseason with a 19-15 victory over the Seattle Seahawks, marking a promising start for the team as they set their sights on a familiar foe in Week 1: the Chicago Bears. While preseason games can sometimes lack excitement, this match provided some noteworthy moments that captured the attention of Packers fans.
In the waning minutes of the game, third-string quarterback Alex McGough orchestrated a game-winning drive, highlighted by a 52-yard pass to Jadakis Bonds, setting up a 1-yard touchdown run by Nate McCrary. Benny Sapp sealed the deal with a crucial interception in the final seconds.
Green Bay’s preseason campaign concluded with a 2-1 record and an impressive 72-55 total point differential, instilling confidence in the team as they prepare to face the Bears.
Running back Aaron Jones expressed his optimism, stating, “We’re ready. I’m confident in our team. We put together a good camp and a really good preseason.”
However, the Packers‘ upcoming matchup with the Bears will have a significant twist. Instead of the legendary Aaron Rodgers leading the charge, it will be Jordan Love taking the reins as the starting quarterback. Love’s performance during the preseason has been commendable, as he led the Packers to 10 points on three drives in their final preseason game, finishing with a passer rating of 109.8.
While Rodgers boasted an impressive 25-5 record against the Bears, Love now shoulders the responsibility of continuing Green Bay’s dominance in this historic rivalry. Packers inside linebacker Quay Walker expressed his confidence in Love, stating, “I think he’s the perfect person to fill in this quarterback role after Aaron. I think he’s going to do real well. I believe in him.”
