On the heels of a big win, Green Bay Packers quarterback Jordan Love has been named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week for his Week 17 performance against the Minnesota Vikings.

During Sunday night’s 33-10 win, Love completed 24 of 33 passes including three passing touchdowns and a rushing touchdown for a 125.3 passer rating which led to his first-ever NFC Offensive Player of the Week title. Love put on one of his best performances of the season in a must-win game as the Packers fight for their spot in the playoffs.

Jordan Love has 30 passing touchdowns and 4 rushing touchdowns on the season and is just the second QB in franchise history to hit those marks (Aaron Rodgers in 2009 & 2016), according to Packers.com’s Mike Spofford.

This was Love’s eighth game of the season with multiple passing TDs and no interceptions, which is the most in the league (tied with Brock Purdy). Jordan Love is also tied for most games with 3+ TDs and 0 INTs over their first 17 career starts.

Needless to say, the NFC Offensive Player of the Week title is another impressive accomplishment for the first-time starting QB to add to his list.
