Standout: Jordan Love

You have to be impressed with Jordan Love, right? No, he wasn't able to lead his first game-winning drive in the fourth quarter, but without any timeouts, that's a tall task for even a veteran quarterback with less than a minute remaining.

Love completed 14-of-25 passes for 151 yards with three touchdowns. More impressive is the fact that, for the second week in a row, Love has protected the football. He almost had his first interception of the season, but Falcons defensive back A.J. Terrell had a case of the butterfingers.

Love looked calm and composed the entire game, and Atlanta was only able to record one sack on the fourth-year quarterback. Love also scrambled twice for 23 yards.

if there's one complaint when it comes to Love's performance, it's the same as last week - completion percentage. You'd love to see that number closer to 60-plus percentage. Through two games, Love's completion percentage is sitting at just 55.7-percent.

But being that Love has played the first two games of this season without his No. 1 target, and was without Aaron Jones on Sunday in Atlanta, fans will probably be willing to let that slide.

I'm not sure any of the Green Bay faithful really knew what to expect from Jordan Love during his first season as the Packers full-time starting quarterback, but thus far, he's looked the part. Despite the loss, Love had another standout performance in Week 2.
