Jordan Love talks to Micah Parsons about how the Packers won against the Cowboys in the playoffs, explaining the game plan

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Micah Parsons is delivering. He didn’t have to go back and relive bad memories.

When Parson spoke with Green Bay Packers quarterback Jordan Love last week, he could have asked Love about anything but the Packers’ 48-32 victory over the Dallas Cowboys.

He was also able to discuss what life was like in Green Bay and how Live supported future Hall of Famer Aaron Rodgers through the first few years of his career. This is an easy question.

But that’s not what Parsons wanted to know. He wanted to know how Green Bay coach Matt LaFleur turned around a regular season that had been one of the best defenses in the NFL.”I’m not trying to make a pun.” Love said as he began his response (h/t Sports Illustrated).

“But the linebackers — I think there was a DB who played linebacker.”Love said in Week 5 that the Cowboys will have to “go a little bit” with linebacker Leighton Vander Esch nursing a season-ending neck injury. Dallas often asked safeties to make plays in the box, which the Packers felt they could take advantage of.“I think the key to getting us into the game was running the ball.

It was a big deal,” Love explained.The Packers stuck to the plan, which led to Aaron Jones rushing 21 times for 118 yards and three touchdowns. Green Bay’s running game opened up a ton of space for Love to operate through the air, allowing him to complete 16 of 21 passes for 272 yards and three touchdowns with no interceptions.

“Running the ball well was our goal and that would trigger everything,” Love explained. That was the goal all along, and the Packers achieved it.
