Blankenship made four field goals on the day as well as both of his extra points. He is now second in the NFL in points scored with 90. He has also made 23 field goals in his rookie season.
Fellow former Bulldog Justin Houston also had a sack in the game for the Colts.
Former Georgia running back Nick Chubb had another 100-yard game for the Cleveland Browns as he ran for 114 yards against the Philadelphia Eagles. He didn’t find the endzone this time, but he had another viral run, which included a nasty stiff-arm to some poor Philadelphia defender.
As for this week’s Top Dawg, our weekly honor that goes to the former Bulldog with the best week in the NFL, we are respecting the specs and giving it to Blankenship. It was a huge week for the rookie kicker.
