Jordan Love called his Green Bay Packers’ 29-22 win over the Detroit Lions on Thursday his “favorite Thanksgiving memory”.
Love starred as the Packers upset the NFC North-leading Lions at Ford Field, throwing three touchdowns to move Green Bay up to 5-6 and leave them very much in the hunt for a playoff spot.
Love spoke of his delight after the game, particularly with the offense’s display, telling NFL on FOX: “This is definitely my favorite Thanksgiving memory.
“Playing on Thanksgiving, getting the win. I’m going to remember this one. The chemistry we’re building on offense, just the way we work every day throughout the week. Play fast, start fast and just getting in that rhythm and being comfortable doing it.”
The Green Bay defense also played a major part in the victory, harassing Lions quarterback Jared Goff all game and forcing three sacks, all from Rashan Gary.
Love was full of praise for his team’s defensive display, saying: “It was an awesome performance by them.
“They were putting up a lot of pressure, RG [Gary] was at the quarterback every time. They got some big-time turnovers so it was a huge performance by them.”
