It sure looks that way.
Mind you, we have to take into account that the two wins since that game came against inferior opponents. Nordsjaelland clearly aren't a European powerhouse and Pescara are a newly promoted team that lost most of its top players during the summer transfer window.
Still, the performances of the Bianconeri have been astonishing.
Juventus are playing the kind of free-flowing football we haven't seen since the win against AS Roma.
The pressure seems to be gone, and instead the Bianconeri are letting the ball do the work. There is a creativity to the game of Juve we hadn't seen all season.
Gone is the trademark "get the ball to the wing and fire in a cross."
Instead, the team is choosing to attack defenses right up the middle, and with great success. They are slicing apart opposing teams with crisp passing and timely runs, and creating space for the wingers to actually deliver quality crosses.
The result: 10 goals in two games.
Before the game against Inter, Juve had looked slow. A slow, passing team that waits for the other team to make a mistake or for a ball to fall in the right place.
Suddenly, they look fast. Like, really fast.
Everyone seems to be open pretty much all the time, and defenses can't seem to figure out where the ball is going to go next.
If this is the new Juventus, the rest of the Serie A is doomed.
