Final stats for Packers QB Jordan Love’s first season as starter in 2023

Green Bay Packers quarterback Jordan Love ended up starting 19 games during his first season as the starter in 2023. In what must represent something approaching a best-case scenario, Love started every game, produced 41 total touchdowns, created an elite 2.5-month stretch, got the Packers to the playoffs and won a postseason game.

A complete statistical examination of his season reveals the obvious: Love was unequivocally a top-10 NFL quarterback in his first year as a starter. Whatever statistical shortcomings he suffered through early in the season were made up and then some during the final 10 games.

Stats can’t tell the whole story but they can help lead to conclusions.

Here’s a complete look at his numbers from the regular and postseason and ranks among quarterbacks in 2023:
