The NFL regular season has come and gone. While a handful of former Georgia standouts will now head to the postseason, others saw their year come to an end this past weekend.
Few highlights were bigger than Mecole Hardman’s. His 104-yard kick return helped beat the Chargers.
In all honesty, he ran the kick back like many of our kids running toward the tree on Christmas morning.
The Dolphins got a high note to end the season, topping the Patriots 27-24. John Jenkins had a tackle for Miami while Sony Michel rushed for 74 yards and a touchdown, Isaiah Wynn played all 61 snaps at tackle and Ben Watson had a four-yard catch.
Jordan Jenkins had three tackles and a sack in the Jets win against Buffalo, which was led by Isaiah McKenzie’s 30 rushing yards.
The Titans, with Ben Jones at center, rolled up 467 yards of offense to beat Houston and claim the AFC’s final wild card spot.
Cheers to Ben Jones! Great extension by Titans earlier this year..— Lauradarin (@DarinLauradarin) December 30, 2019
Freddie Kitchens deserves to be fired after only running Nick Chubb 13 times, a move that for all accounts caused him to lose the rushing title on Sunday to Derrick Henry. Chubb wraps up the season with 1,494 rushing yards, second among all running backs. On the other side of the 33-23 loss to the Bengals, Geno Atkins had five tackles to the three of Shawn Williams.
Amazingly, the one who will care the least about missing the rushing title is Nick Chubb. Chubb is a different breed. He will get up tomorrow, unfazed, and go to work. Great season @NickChubb21!! Love that guy! Go Browns!#Browns #BrownsTwitter pic.twitter.com/iaduLf6k2u— Jason @BrownsHuddle (@BrownsHuddle) December 30, 2019
Justin Houston had a sack and forced fumble, but Sunday belonged to the Jaguars in a 38-20 win. Chris Conley had three catches for 18 yards and Abry Jones, playing in is 100th game, had a tackle and half a sack.
Not back for a kid who PA announcers used to call, “Arby Jones”
Todd Gurley’s 68 yards rushing in a 31-24 win against the Cardinals ended a year in which he had 14 total touchdowns, fifth-best in the NFL.
The Bears held off the Vikings 21-19 with some pass-catching help from former Dawgs. Riley Ridley had three receptions for 54 yards and Javon Wims had three for 23.
John Atkins had five tackles for Detroit in a 23-20 loss to the Packers.
The Giants fell 34-17 to the Eagles despite five tackles from Alec Ogletree, two from Lorenzo Carter and one by Deandre Baker.
In the Redskins’ 47-16 loss to Dallas, Maurice Smith had a tackle.
Go NFL Dawgs!
