1. Green Bay Packers (2-1)

Boy, this week did not start out the way Packers fans would have hoped. It began with Green Bay going down 17-0 at halftime, looking like a team that was searching for answers. And, instead of folding, the Packers fought their way back and scored 18 points in the final 11 minutes of game time, including a key two-point conversion that was ultimately the deciding factor in this one.

The first two and a half quarters were marred by Green Bay's self-inflicted wounds, specifically some dropped passes and missed opportunities. Green Bay looked like they should have been in it, had it not been for a few mental errors.

Quarterback Jordan Love finished his day going 22-of-44 passing for 259 yards, one touchdown, one interception and a rushing touchdown. He was also responsible for the two-point conversion with a toss to wide receiver Samori Toure.

Green Bay's defense held its own all game, keeping the Saints to 252 yards in total, including just 77 on the ground.

Now, the Packers are riding some momentum after grinding out a hard-fought win against a previously 2-0 team. This Thursday night will be an early battle for taking sole first place of the NFC North.
