In Jordan Love's home opener as the Green Bay Packers starting quarterback, the Packers pulled off a historic comeback to defeat the New Orleans Saints 18-17 and improve to 2-1.

With David Bakhtiari, Aaron Jones, Christian Watson, Elgton Jenkins, and Jaire Alexander all sidelined to begin the game, the Packers also lost Carrington Valentine and De'Vondre Campbell during the battle against a stout Saints team.

Down 17-0 after three quarters, Love pioneered back-to-back 80-yard touchdown drives to tie a Packers' franchise record for largest fourth-quarter comeback.

While Love undoubtedly had a legacy type of game that few will soon forget, the Packers had other equally as critical contributions to help them seal the victory. Others, however, had performances that will require extra time in the film room.

Standout: Rashan Gary

After being eased back into action over the first two games, Rashan Gary was still on a pitch count in week three's home opener, only on the field for 38% of defensive snaps.

Primarily facing All-Pro tackle Ryan Ramczyk, Gary racked up his first career three-sack effort, one of which would take Saints quarterback Derek Carr out for the remainder of the game after an awkward landing early in the third quarter.

Gary finished with three sacks, four quarterback hits, and three tackles for loss. Post-game in the locker room, an emotional Gary received a game ball for his efforts.
