GREEN BAY -- For the second straight week, Packers QB Jordan Love has been named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week.
Love won this latest award for his performance in the regular-season finale vs. the Bears, during which he was 27-of-32 for 316 yards, two TDs and a 128.6 passer rating as the Packers qualified for the NFC playoffs.
The previous week, Love won the award for his outing at Minnesota during which he threw for three touchdowns and ran for another. That was his first career selection for the honor, and now he has two.
Love is the second Packers player to win any of the league's weekly awards (offense, defense, special teams) in back-to-back weeks since their inception in 1984. He joins receiver Don Beebe, who in 1996 won the special teams award in Week 6 and the offensive award in Week 7.
Over these past two games, Love boosted his final passer rating for the regular season to 96.1 and pushed his season total over 4,000 passing yards (4,159). He also finished with 32 passing TDs, ranking second in the league to Cowboys QB Dak Prescott's 36. The two QBs will face off in the NFC Wild Card round Sunday in Dallas (3:30 p.m. CT, FOX).
No Packers player had won a league-issued player of the week award this season until Love these last two weeks. The only Packers to win a weekly award last season were punter Pat O'Donnell (Week 3) and return specialist Keisean Nixon (Week 17).
Love is just the second player this season to win any of the league's weekly awards in consecutive weeks, joining Browns punter Dustin Hopkins (AFC special teams, Weeks 6-7). The last quarterbacks to win either conference's offensive award in back-to-back weeks were Philadelphia's Jalen Hurts (Weeks 12-13, 2022) and Buffalo's Josh Allen (Weeks 5-6, 2022), both last season.
