Jordan Love

Jordan Love is a quarterback who has been trending in the wrong direction after throwing six touchdowns and no interceptions in the first two games. Since then, he has only four touchdowns and seven interceptions in the last four games.

However, this week gives him a chance to bounce back against a Minnesota Vikings defense that is giving up plenty through the air. Through seven games, the Vikings have allowed an average of 224.7 yards per game but more importantly, have given up 10 passing touchdowns already.

For Love to be successful this week, the Packers are going to have to establish the run and ask him to throw less. This might be counterintuitive but in the two games to begin the season, he averaged 26 pass attempts but the past four has averaged 35.25 pass attempts.

If the Packers can cut back on his pass attempts but have him throw the ball more downfield, Jordan Love could have a solid week against the Vikings.
