The Green Bay Packers moved on from Aaron Rodgers this past offseason, setting up Jordan Love to start. The Packers drafted Love as the heir to Rodgers with their first-round pick in 2020.

Love has Green Bay at 5-6, and it's been an up-and-down season. Over the last four games, Love has found his groove and is proving to be the franchise quarterback for the Packers.

Against the 8-2 Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving, Love completed 68.8 percent of his passes for 268 yards, three touchdowns, and zero interceptions. He also had 39 rushing yards on two carries.

It was a phenomenal performance from Love against one of the best teams in the league. He was poised in the pocket and created plays out of nothing when needed. Love was decisive, making the right reads and finding his receivers. He connected on some plays downfield, which helped the Packers gain momentum early in the game.

He made clutch plays throughout the game, including the longest rush of his career on a third down late in the 4th quarter.

Love has come into form over the last four games. He has completed 65 percent of his passes for 1,107 yards, eight touchdowns, and two interceptions. Love has put Green Bay in the playoff picture in the NFC. They are one game behind the Minnesota Vikings for a Wild Card spot.

The 25-year-old quarterback will look to continue his success in a tough matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs on December 3rd.

Love is thriving and proving to be the franchise quarterback for the Packers and a worthy heir to Aaron Rodgers.
