By Marc Lawrence, PlaybookSports.com — This juicy tidbit from this week’s PLAYBOOK FOOTBALL Newsletter:
It’s said that Love is lacking in Green Bay these days, and the proof is in the pudding.
Witness Green Bay’s 2-5 record under starting QB Jordan Love, the work-in-progress, Aaron Rogers’ clipboard holder. Worse, the Pack lacks an offense, averaging 299 yards per contest this season,
Minnesota QB Kirk Cousins silenced the critics as he was simply terrific with a brilliant performance against the 49ers on Monday Night with a 35 of 45 (77.8 %) effort for 478 yards and two TDs. That’s the same Kirk Cousins who was 2-10 SUATS in his NFL career on Monday Nights.
And the same Cousins who is 11-3 SUATS away from Game Four out versus sub .400 NFL opponents in his NFL career, including 6-0 ATS versus non-division foes.
We’re not kissing and telling on Sunday, but you know what to do.
