It has been an up-and-down debut season for Green Bay Packers quarterback Jordan Love, who is in his first year as the starting quarterback but his fourth year as a Packer. Love has seen some positive moments this season, but he and the Packers have seen more negative results.
This Sunday is the chance for Love to show he can be the leader of the Packers moving forward as they host the disappointing Los Angeles Chargers. The Chargers are ranked 32nd (last) in the league in passing yards allowed per game (291.2) as they have allowed 14 passing touchdowns this season.
Love has had four games this season where he is thrown for over one passing touchdown, with last week’s 23-19 road loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers being the most recent.
There are already talks of Green Bay potentially getting ready to move on from Love, but this game might be enough to shut those rumors down for a while.
Washington commanders are seeing serious pressure this season as they are starting to lose their sights on a potential playoff berth. One aspect of their season that is not lost currently is the development of the passing game led by quarterback Sam Howell and wide receiver Terry McLaurin.
The Commanders have the 11th-ranked passing offense in the league (246.6 passing yards per game) as Howell is starting to look like the team’s potential franchise quarterback. It does help to have a great number-one receiver in McLaurin, who has 51 receptions for 601 yards and two touchdowns.
Washington hosts the New York Giants on Sunday and a key divisional matchup. The Giants are ranked 21st in the league in passing yards allowed per game (237.3). This is just one of many aspects of the Giants that have been incredibly disappointing this season.
McLaurin has yet to cross 100 yards in a game this season. This Sunday’s game is his best chance to accomplish that task.
Early in the 2023 NFL season, Dallas Cowboys outside linebacker Micah Parsons was getting early consideration for not only the Defensive Player of the Year but also the MVP award. As the Cowboys started to lose games, his percentage for MVP dropped. His production on the field remained as he is still one of the most efficient pass rushers in the league.
Through nine games this season, Parsons has accounted for 10 tackles for loss and 7.5 sacks. One of his best games of the season as he accounted for nine total tackles, five solo tackles, three quarterback hits, and 1.5 sacks in the 28-23 road loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.
The Cowboys are taking on the Carolina Panthers, who have allowed 32 sacks this season, which is the fifth most in the league. Parsons going up against the terrible office of mind of the Panthers will create a huge mismatch that will leave rookie Panthers quarterback Bryson scrambling consistently.
