Georgia football sees its defense create 25 havoc plays

Georgia football struggled to get any momentum going against Alabama, especially when putting pressure on the quarterback. However, on Friday, the Dawgs will go off against the Wolverines and make them remember the day they took on the best defense college football has seen since 2011.

The Dawgs have a whopping 193 quarterback hurries on the season, 52 pass breakups, 83 tackles for loss and 41 sacks. They know how to wreak havoc on opponents.

Georgia will look to do that against the Wolverines because to win this game — havoc must happen.

The Dawgs need to get in Michigan starting quarterback Cade McNamara’s head and stay there. Nakobe Dean, Channing Tindall, Travon Walker Nolan Smith, and the rest of the defense need to put pressure on him and keep it on him.

Georgia will see 35 havoc plays, which is steep but overdue. The Dawgs have the capabilities to make this happen because if they get pressure on McNamara, it’ll be at 35 before they know it.

Michigan is a physical team that will make a team pay if they don’t do their due diligence. The Dawgs saw seven sacks against Clemson and six against Tennessee. It’s time for them to do that once more. Plus, making sure that they handle their business and wrap up entirely if they reach a Wolverine behind the line of scrimmage.

Plus, it’s time for another pick-six as Oct. 30 is far too long to go without one. A pick-six could swing the momentum the right amount so Georgia can put it to the Wolverines.

Havoc is key for the defense but also making sure they play smart football.
