The Jordan Love era began with two impressive road performances. Had the Green Bay Packers not thrown away a 12-point fourth-quarter lead last week, they would remain undefeated entering their home opener.
Winning is priority number one, but the Packers can take positives away from both performances so far this season.
Green Bay relies on its star players, like Aaron Jones, David Bakhtiari, Rashan Gary, and Jaire Alexander. They are game-changers. But the Packers could become unstoppable if these five players reach the next level this season.
5. Zach Tom
Death, taxes, and the Green Bay Packers finding quality starting offensive linemen in the middle rounds of the draft. Second-year Zach Tom, a fourth-round pick by Green Bay, has made an outstanding start to the season.
Tom came off the bench regularly as a rookie, filling in at several positions, but he has found a home as the Packers' new starting right tackle.
Tom's performances on the right side of the offensive line have played a vital role in protecting Jordan Love. It's one of the main reasons why Love has only been sacked twice in two games.
The Packers need their offensive line to reach its potential, and they are off to a good start. Tom has played at a Pro Bowl level in the opening two games.
