The stats show the Jordan Love-led Green Bay Packers are off to a good start.

Despite missing Christian Watson in the opening two games and Aaron Jones last week, the Packers are among the highest-scoring teams in the league entering Week 3. Considering the lack of experience Green Bay has on offense, that is pretty impressive.

With six touchdown passes and no interceptions to his name through two weeks, Jordan Love is showing he is more than ready to take over as the Packers' QB1. It's still early, but the Packers rank second in points scored entering Week 3.

Note: The 49ers and Giants have played three games after their Thursday Night Football matchup.

The Packers have one defensive touchdown this season, a Quay Walker pick-six in the season opener at Chicago. Even if we don't include that, the Packers would still have 55 points, which would rank inside the top seven.

One of the biggest surprises is to see the Kansas City Chiefs tied with the Chicago Bears. The Chiefs haven't found scoring points easy to begin the season.

Mike McCarthy's Dallas Cowboys are the team to beat in the NFC. They have shown Super Bowl potential in the opening two games.

Can the Packers stay near the top of the rankings with a Week 3 matchup against the New Orleans Saints up next?
