Rapid reaction: Packers 'still think there's more' to their offense

QB Jordan Love proved unflappable once again in tough circumstances


CHARLOTTE – It's starting to sound like a broken record in Jordan Love's first year as a starter.

But there's just nothing that shakes this guy.

Not missing arguably the offense's two most dynamic receivers in Christian Watson and Jayden Reed in a gotta-have-it game.

Not losing another big weapon, Dontayvion Wicks, to a chest injury after a clutch TD catch late in the first half.

Not after back-to-back three-and-outs – the offense's second and third fruitless possessions of the second half after humming along in the first – and watching a 14-point lead evaporate in half a quarter of football.

Nope. Love made do with what he had, kept his cool and delivered two superb throws on what turned out to be the game-winning drive for a field goal.

"I admire, I've said this before, Jordan's resiliency," Head Coach Matt LaFleur said. "It can get tough when you feel the momentum flipping."

It wasn't flipping. It had flipped. Wholesale.
