Here comes Jordan Love. This is the quarterback the Packers were hoping to see this season.

Love put in a handful of shaky performances between Weeks 3 and 8, completing 58.2 percent of his passes for 1,096 yards, five touchdowns, and eight interceptions. While Love wasn't playing well, he also received little help from a struggling offensive line and regular inexcusable errors from his receivers.

But over the past month, Love has taken a giant step forward. Since Week 9, Love has completed 65.2 percent of his passes for 1,107 yards, eight touchdowns, and only two interceptions. The Packers are 3-1 in that stretch.

He arguably played the best game of his career three weeks in a row, saving a masterclass for last week's stunning victory over the Detroit Lions. Love carved open the Lions' defense on Thanksgiving, throwing for 268 yards and three touchdowns with a season-high 125.5 rating.

Love dominated, making big throw after big throw, and he even made a huge 37-yard run on a crucial third down late in the fourth quarter.

Love is showing franchise quarterback potential. A strong finish to the season will likely guarantee him a multi-year extension in the near future, if he hasn't already earned that.
