The long wait between the end of the regular season and bowl season can be a slog, especially when your team plays around the new year. But the lengthy gap does have its benefits. For one, all that time waiting also affords us the opportunity to look at Georgia’s Liberty Bowl opponent, TCU, much more in-depth than we have the luxury of analyzing in-season opponents and in a different form.
Todd Gurley and the Rams suffered their ninth loss of the season, this time at the hands of the Atlanta Falcons. Once again, Gurley failed to get much going on the ground. The former Bulldog toted the rock 16 times for 61 yards and a touchdown. On defense for the Rams, Alec Ogletree was second in tackles, with 5 total, including 4 solo.
In a 23-10 win by the Bengals over the Browns, Geno Atkins pitched in 2 sacks among his 5 total tackles. Elsewhere on the Cincinnati defense, Shawn Williams totaled 4 tackles and pitched in 1 pass defensed.
