It was a night to forget for the Green Bay Packers.

The Packers crashed back down to earth after an impressive three-game winning run. The New York Giants crushed Green Bay's hopes of running the table and dented its playoff ambitions. It was an ugly performance by both teams, but the Packers deservedly lost.

Where did it go wrong for the Packers? This performance was a million miles away from the victories over the Kansas City Chiefs and Detroit Lions.

Which Packers deserve the blame for the defeat at MetLife Stadium in Week 14?

3. Jordan Love

It's all part of the rollercoaster ride for a first-year quarterback.

Coming off a phenomenal three-game stretch, Jordan Love struggled against the Giants. His throws were slightly off early in the game, with Love missing open targets.

Love turned the ball over twice in the first half, a fumble followed by an interception on consecutive drives. It was his first lost fumble of the season and his first pick since Week 10. It summed up the Packers' performance in the opening two quarters.

Love went 13/20 for 116 yards, no touchdowns, one interception, and one lost fumble in the first half.

However, to his credit, he improved as the game went on. Love was better in the final two quarters, going 12/19 for 102 yards and one touchdown.

Love's slow start and turnovers hurt the Packers, but he did lead them to a late fourth-quarter lead, only to watch the defense blow it.
