1. Georgia football has an offense that puts up numbers
Georgia ranks high in most offensive stats through their first two games, which is something to get used to because the Dawgs aren’t going anywhere. While we all know that the Dawgs are usually a successful run team, the passing game has elevated.
Through the first two games, Georgia leads the SEC in passing offense averaging 395.5 yards a game. The Dawgs average 9.9 yards per attempt and hold a 73.8% completion rate. Georgia also leads the SEC in total offense averaging 525 yards a game and 7.66 yards per play. Nationally, Georgia is No.10 in total offense, which is not something you see every day from the Dawgs.
That 7.66 yards per play stat ranks No. 1 in the SEC and No.9 nationally. Georgia is an offense people should pay attention to because it’s so good.
The Dawgs are not hurting on offense because they kicked a few field goals against Samford. We’re with head coach Kirby Smart on field goals don’t win ball games, but looking at the same time, Georgia didn’t have to hang 50-plus points on Samford to prove anything.
Georgia was dominant — 25 first downs compared to Samford’s three. Even though it felt like Georgia struggled to convert, the Dawgs did.
The Dawgs are also No.2 in third down conversions at 60.87% — only Mississippi State is higher. That third down conversion is also No.7 nationally, so Georgia is doing something right.
Georgia is putting up points and yardage. Not to mention, they are converting on third down. Could it be better? Yes, but it’s a work in progress, and Week 2 wasn’t a disaster.
We also cannot forget to mention the time of possession stat because that ranks No.1 in the SEC and is No. 9 overall. Georgia averages 30:33 minutes of possession per game, which means they are sustaining drives and keeping the other offense off the field.
