GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV) – After a dominating Week 1 victory over rival Chicago that took many by surprise, the youngest team in the NFL looks to start the 2023 season on a winning streak as they head to Atlanta for a Week 2 matchup against the young offensive weapons of the Falcons.

All eyes were on Jordan Love as he made just his second career start against the Bears in 2023’s season opener, and he did not disappoint. Love was one of three quarterbacks in Week 1 who passed for 3 touchdowns and was the only one of which to do so without throwing an interception.

Love’s Week 1 performance put him on top of the leaderboard in Passer Rating, with 123.2. Atlanta Falcons quarterback Desmond Ridder finished second-highest in Passer Rating at 111.8.

Green Bay will be tested in Week 2, traveling to Atlanta to face the 1-0 Falcons, who are coming off a Week 1 victory over the Carolina Panthers, 24-10. Atlanta trailed Carolina 10-7 early in the 3rd Quarter but rallied for 17 unanswered points, including two touchdowns in the 4th Quarter, to pull out the win.
