Backup quarterback Jordan Love replaced the injured Aaron Rodgers and immediately set off fireworks. Love went 3-for-3 for 75 yards and a touchdown.

His 63-yard touchdown to Christian Watson has reduced the Packers’ deficit to 37-30 with 9:00 still to go.

Eagles fans surely thought their team had the game in hand with a 14-point lead in the fourth quarter and Rodgers in the locker room with an oblique injury.

But Love answered the call.

Watson now has three receptions for 95 yards and his sixth touchdown of the season.

The Packers have not ruled out Rodgers yet, but it seems unlikely he returns tonight.

  1. More specifically, Love threw a 10-yard pass to Watson in the middle of the field, and Watson sped outside and ran past multiple Eagles defenders for 53 yards and the TD.

    I hope Love does well, but it was an ordinary pass and excellent YAC.

    Where are all those declarations? And shouldn’t a soft secondary be harder to outrun?

    While Love clearly played well it is also true that it was only a few plays and way too soon to get overly excited about his future. That being said, isn’t a so called “soft secondary” supposed to prevent plays exactly like the one that burned them? The pass, route and catch were perfectly executed….cannot take that away from Love and Watson.

    I haven’t heard Packers fans declaring a HOFer. They just seem glad he’s not Rogers.

  6. It’s hard to mock cheesers for being excited about Love. Not sure if he’s the real deal or not, but it looks like even diehard fans are ready to move on from Rodgers.
