2. Green Bay Packers (2-2)

Seven quarters into the regular season, everything looked great for the Green Bay Packers. They kicked things off with a blowout victory over the Chicago Bears, and through three quarters in Week 2, they held a 24-12 lead over the Atlanta Falcons.

Jordan Love had six touchdown passes and no interceptions, and the offense was moving the ball with ease.

Then everything changed. Atlanta outscored Green Bay 13-0 in the fourth quarter to win the game. The Packers went scoreless in the opening three quarters against the New Orleans Saints before a miracle 18-point fourth quarter.

But many of the issues on both sides of the ball returned in Week 4. Green Bay couldn't stop the run, giving up 211 rushing yards for the second time in three weeks. Offensively, the Packers couldn't get anything going.

In the past two weeks, Jordan Love has completed 45 of 80 passes for 505 yards, two touchdowns, and three interceptions with a passer rating of 67.97.

The Packers have plenty of positives to take away from the opening four games, but there is a lot to fix. Matt LaFleur spoke about the need for change on defense. We'll see whether he actually meant what he said when they next play on Monday Night Football in Week 5.
