GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV) – The young Green Bay Packers played so well for three straight quarters against the Atlanta Falcons and looked poised to start the season 2-0, but a fourth-quarter collapse was detrimental to the Green & Gold as they ended up choking away the victory.
Now back to .500, Green Bay heads back home to Lambeau Field, ready to take on the New Orleans Saints. Jordan Love has been magnificent to start the 2023 campaign, as he has six touchdowns and zero interceptions on the young season.
