2. Jordan Love, Green Bay Packers
Two games into the regular season, Jordan Love leads the league in passer rating and is tied for the lead in passing touchdowns, just as everyone expected.
The Packers have to be impressed with Love's performances in the opening two weeks. Even without top receiver Christian Watson, Love has made excellent throw after excellent throw while making quick, smart decisions. It has led Love to 396 passing yards, six touchdowns, and, crucially, no interceptions. No QB has a better passer rating than Love's 118.7 through two games.
There is work to be done, which is to be expected from a young, inexperienced quarterback. His completion percentage needs to improve. But there were always going to be ups and downs. Not only is Love in his first season as a starter, but he is leading one of the least experienced offenses in football, particularly at wide receiver and tight end.
Love has made an impressive start and he has huge potential. Getting Watson back will help. As Love gains more experience, he will only continue to improve and grow in confidence. It's early days, but Love has made an excellent start as the Packers' new QB1 in the opening two weeks of the regular season.
