Jordan Love Says Packers Ready For The Blitz After Chiefs Win
Jordan Love kept the Packers’ playoff hopes alive and put some ghosts to rest against the Chiefs on Sunday.
The Green Bay quarterback made the first start of his NFL career against Kansas City in November 2021. Jordan Love wilted in the face of the Chiefs blitz and Green Bay lost 13 – 7.
The Packers ran away 27-19 on Sunday after Jordan Love endured the blitz in a ‘huge’ performance. Green Bay have gone from 2-5 in October to 6-6 and occupy the NFC’s final playoff spot.

Love finished with 267 yards on 25-of-36 passing, no interceptions and three touchdowns.
“Yeah, it’s huge,” Love said.
“For me personally, obviously I’ve had this game circled for a long time. My first start, obviously, didn’t play how I wanted to the first game. So to be able to see these guys again and get the victory is huge. It’s just a great team win tonight. Everybody just balled out, so it was an awesome win.
“I’ve gotten more reps, [and] I’m more comfortable understanding where I need to go with the ball,” Love said.
“I think the O-line is doing a great job to be able to pick this stuff up. It’s not easy when they’re bringing some of these all-out blitzes, stuff like that, but they’ve been doing a great job giving me time. And then the receivers, obviously, they’re having awareness of when they need to be open and how long I’ve got and then just going out there and making plays.
“But it’s definitely something we as a team, in practice, we know it’s something teams are going to bring. And we’ve got to be able to execute and go out there and be able to make sure they don’t do it again.”
