Jordan Love made the perfect start to life as the Green Bay Packers' starting quarterback. He led the Packers to a dominant victory over the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field.

Love completed 15 of 27 passes for 245 yards and three touchdowns. The young quarterback has areas to improve, but he stepped up in crucial moments, making big plays when his team desperately needed them.

The Packers picked up an important victory over a divisional opponent on the road and ensured they still own the Bears. Head coach Matt LaFleur handed Love a game ball after the win, and his teammates had the perfect reaction.

One thing is clear: Jordan Love has the support of his teammates.

We saw it all summer. Several Packers players have publicly backed Love, talking about their confidence in him as he begins his first season as the starter.

Take LaFleur's postgame speech as an example. When LaFleur hands Love a game ball, the entire locker room erupts in applause and cheers. They were fired up for their quarterback, and it's amazing to see.

This is a locker room that has belief in their QB1. Win, lose, or tie, Love has their full backing. It says a lot about Love's leadership and the way he carries himself. His teammates love him.

Analysts were quick to write Green Bay off following Aaron Rodgers' departure. On Sunday, this team reminded the world that they still have a lot of talent on both sides of the ball. Love also had a point to prove. The Packers traded up for him. He has had three years to develop. Love showed he was ready for his moment.

Hopefully, this is the first of many game balls he will receive from LaFleur.
