Key Areas Where Packers Excel: Taking Care of the Ball
Rodgers was known for his extraordinary ability to protect the football and avoid interceptions. While Love hasn’t reached that level, he has shown promise in this regard during his first four starts.
Love’s interception percentage is above average, which is a positive sign for a quarterback with limited starting experience in the NFL. His task has been made more challenging by the absence of key offensive weapons like Christian Watson and Aaron Jones, which can make it harder to find open receivers.
Beyond Love, the Packers as a team have continued their tradition of taking good care of the football even in the post-Rodgers era. This discipline will be a valuable asset as the season unfolds, allowing the team to maximize every offensive possession.
