Well, the statistics are saying so! Love was in his initial playoff matchup with the Packers, and he played like a show’s topper for the matchup. The QB had an incredible first-half performance, going 13 of 16 for 185 yards and one touchdown. Furthermore, his stats, when compared to Rodgers, are much more surprising. Love has nine games with multiple touchdown passes as a starter. Rodgers, on the other hand, did it just once in his first season as a starter. Another milestone in Jordan’s debut season is that he took the team to the postseason, which is not the case for Rodgers.

The 25-year-old quarterback had an impressive debut season with 4,159 passing yards, matching the record set by Aaron Rodgers. Interestingly, Jordan has more pre-game records than Hall of Famer Rodgers. A-Rod threw for 254.4 passing yards, while Love’s record is 244.6 yards, but the 25-year-old QB also had a higher average of touchdowns per game.
