Clutch play shows Love potential Greatness.

Green Bay Whis. – Good boxers are given a lot of numbers because they have the athletic ability to throw every throw. Great quarterbacks win games because they also have the clutch gene.Fifteen games into his first season as the Green Bay Packers’ starting quarterback, it’s too early to be sure Jordan Love is destined for greatness. But after three setbacks to start the season, Love is riding a three-game winning streak heading into Sunday night’s must-win matchup with the Minnesota Vikings.

“I always think that’s one of the best traits of a quarterback,” coach Matt LaFleur said this week. “He can tear a team down when he needs it most and he’s done that a few times this year.”This season, four different quarterbacks have recorded four game-winning drives. Love would have joined that group had the Giants defense not disrupted the game three weeks ago.In a season full of comparisons, Love’s first-season numbers, replacing Hall of Famer Aaron Rodgers, are interesting. In the fourth quarter this season, Love had 7 touchdowns and 6 interceptions, with a passing success rate of just 51.9%.

Among the 32 players with at least 60 fourth-quarter pass attempts, Love’s rating is 71.8, ranking 28th. In the fourth quarter of his 2008 starter’s debut season, Rogers recorded 60.8% of his passes, with 8 touchdowns and 5 interceptions. Among the 31 players with 60 or more fourth-quarter pass attempts, Rodgers’ 87.8 rating ranked 11th.However, Love has the Packers to a 7-8 record in the playoff race.

However, later in the season, he led the Packers to wins over the Chargers and Panthers.Ready for victory in 3 weeks The Saints had as many game-winning drives at love as Rodgers had in his first 28 starts.
