1. Georgia football shares the wealth on offense in a dominating way
The other incredibly impressive stat from Georgia football’s big win over Missouri was the number of players that recorded at least one play of 10-yards.
Georgia saw 15 players record a play that went at least 10 yards — talk about sharing the wealth.
Nine of the 11 receivers that caught a pass on Saturday went for at least 11 yards. Four of those nine guys had a play go 31-plus yards. That is four explosives offensive plays for the Dawgs just from the receivers alone.
Six ball carriers toted the rock at least 11 yards against the Tigers. Kearis Jackson had a 37-yard run which resulted in the fifth explosive play for the Dawgs.
Five guys had 13-plus yard runs.
Georgia found ways to be explosive on offense regardless of who was out there and trying to make it happen. Stetson Bennett and JT Daniels were able to spread the wealth and look at what happened.
There are still essential playmakers on the injury list, and the offense had 15 guys go for 10-plus yards. Who knows what this team is going to look like when they are 100% healthy.
This statistic is what Georiga needs to see against teams like Alabama and those they could face off within the playoffs. If the offense can be this productive, it’ll be hard for many defenses to stop them from scoring.
Georgia’s offense continues to evolve as the season progresses, making it that much harder for teams to cover. While everyone expects the Dawgs to run the ball, Saturday’s game showed they could be explosive through the air as well.
Georgia football is impressive as a whole, and each week these stats unveil another thing the Dawgs do that helps them win. Saturday’s game against Missouri wasn’t perfect, but it was more than enough to get their ninth win and stay undefeated.
