Packers’ Jordan Love Express Fear On First Playoff Game

Green Bay Packers quarterback Jordan Love is about to start his first playoff game, but he’s staying cool, cold and tight, just like he was in the second half of the regular season.

When asked if he would do things differently before the Packers’ Wild Card round game against the Dallas Cowboys, Love said he would pretty much keep the status quo. “Every game I do what I call a checklist: relax, calm down, try to watch the game, come to me and focus on every little thing I can focus on, try to control what I can control .”

Demovsky spoke with ESPN’s Rob. “So I don’t think it’s any different than other games.”The problem is that Green Bay plays Dallas, where the Cowboys are undefeated this season. But Love doesn’t seem afraid of road games.

“Obviously it’s going to be an away game and it’s going to be a loud environment,” Love said. “So getting my feet on the ground and being in the game will be huge.”Love is coming off a breakout season, completing 64.2 percent of his passes and throwing for 4,159 yards, 32 touchdowns and 11 interceptions while posting a 96.1 passer rating.

The 25-year-old has been particularly active over the last month and a half, totaling 18 tackles and just one pick in his last eight games. The Packers are 6-2 in those games. Green Bay went 3-6 at one point early in the season, largely due to Love’s struggles and inconsistency in the early months.

But the Utah native found his feet year after year, eventually leading the Packers to a 9-8 record in his first full season as the club’s full-time starter. Jordan Love and K secured the final wild card spot in the NFC. They host the Cowboys on Sunday afternoon.
