The outlook was bleak after the Green Bay Packers completed their fourth consecutive quarter without scoring a point. Green Bay trailed by 17 points, the offense couldn't get out of its own way, and humiliation in the home opener seemed inevitable.
Then everything changed. Jordan Love had seen enough. Without much help from his offensive line or receivers for most of the game, Love put the team on his back and led a stunning fourth-quarter comeback.
It was anything but a convincing performance. There is so much to improve. But the Packers found a way to win. Who were the biggest winners and losers in Week 3?
Winner: Jordan Love
Jordan Love looked comfortable in the Packers' opening two games. He was rarely pressured, got the ball out quickly, and threw six touchdown passes. But how would he respond when things didn't go well? Could he lead a comeback?
The answer was a resounding yes. Love made mistakes early in the game, but he didn't get much help, either. Dropped passes and miscommunications were a common theme, and offensive line penalties continued to pile up.
But Love showed tremendous character. He never gave up and saved his best football for the final quarter. Love led back-to-back 80-yard touchdown drives with a mix of beautiful throws and plays with his legs.
He did a bit of everything. He ran in the Packers' first touchdown, then set up the next with a 24-yard rush down the sideline. He also converted the two-point try by expertly extending the play before finding Samori Toure -- Aaron Rodgers would've been proud of that one.
Love hit Jayden Reed for a beautiful 30-yard connection, and the catch was every bit as impressive. He then connected with Romeo Doubs in the end zone for the go-ahead touchdown.
Was it Love's greatest performance? Far from it. But he stepped up when the team needed him the most, leading his first game-winning drive.
