    Nick Chubb reached 21.95 mph on an 88-yard touchdown run against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, becoming the fastest ball carrier to score a touchdown in the NFL this season. Chubb’s speed of 21.95 mph is the second-fastest a ball carrier has run, in general, this season. Chubb only trails Cordarrelle Patterson, who reached 22.23 mph on a 46-yard rush in week two. Prior to this week, another former Georgia Bulldog, Mecole Hardman, was the fastest ball carrier to score a touchdown this season. Both Chubb and Hardman reached their fastest speeds on a touchdown this season against the Ravens. Hardman reached 21.74 mph on an 83-yard touchdown reception against the Ravens in week three.
  • The Falcons were hoping home cooking would get them back on track. They were mistaken. The Tennessee Titans came into Atlanta and knocked-off the Falcons 24-10 Sunday inside Mercedes-Benz Stadium. With the loss, Atlanta falls to 1-3 for the season, while the Titans even their record to 2-2.  After falling behind 7-0 in the first quarter, the Falcons would tie it with an Ito Smith 1-yeard TD run. That would be the only time Atlanta would find the end zone.  Falcons’ QB Matt Ryan threw for 397 yards on 35-of-53 passing. But he was sacked five times in the game. Atlanta was penalized seven times for 50 yards. The Falcons travel to Houston next weekend to face the Texans.   
  • Mecole Hardman Jr. scored on an 83-yard reception against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday and according to Next Gen Stats, Hardman got up to 21.74 mph, which is the fastest a ball carrier has run on any touchdown this season in the NFL. Hardman led both teams in receiving with two receptions for 97 yards and a touchdown. Hardman now has six receptions for 158 yards and two touchdowns during his rookie campaign with the Kansas City Chiefs. Hardman’s maximum speed of 21.74 mph is the third-fastest speed for a ball carrier all season, only trailing Cordarrelle Patterson and Saquan Barkley. Patterson got up to 22.23 mph on a 46-yard rush in week two for the Chicago Bears. Barkley got up to 21.76 mph on a 59-yard rush in week one for the New York Giants. Hardman claims to have plenty left in the tank and that he was not even running at 100% on his touchdown run.
  • The Georgia Bulldogs saw six former players score in week two of the NFL season, including Mecole Hardman who brought in a 42-yard reception from the reigning MVP Patrick Mahomes for his first touchdown in the NFL. In addition to Hardman, Nick Chubb, Matthew Stafford, Isaiah McKenzie, Sony Michel and Todd Gurley all scored this past weekend. And all of their teams picked up wins over the weekend. How they did this weekend Hardman 4 receptions 61 receiving yards 1 receiving touchdown Chubb 18 carries 62 rushing yards 1 rushing touchdown 4 receptions 36 receiving yards Stafford 73.33 cmp% 245 passing yards 2 passing touchdowns 2 interceptions 4 carries 13 rushing yards McKenzie 2 receptions 40 receiving yards 1 receiving touchdown 1 carry 4 rushing yards Michel 21 carries 85 rushing yards 1 rushing touchdown 1 fumble Gurley 16 carries 63 rushing yards 1 rushing touchdown 3 receptions 4 receiving yards
  • Ticket prices between Georgia and Notre Dame are starting to soar as we get closer to kickoff. Tickets for the primetime matchup between No. 3 Georgia and No. 7 Notre Dame are not only the most expensive tickets this season, but also the fourth-most expensive ticket over the last five seasons. After Saturday, Georgia would have officially played in the four most expensive college football games over the last five years, according to Vivid Seats. Most expensive college football tickets last five years Georgia vs. Auburn (SEC Championship) - 12/2/17 ($784) Georgia vs. Alabama (SEC Championship) - 12/2/18 ($655) Georgia at Notre Dame - 9/9/17 ($619) Georgia vs. Notre Dame - 9//21/19 ($611) Vince Dooley Field at Sanford Stadium is expected to hold a record crowd this weekend as Georgia has added 500 seats in aluminum bleachers underneath the scoreboard, which extends the stadiums capacity to 93,246.
  • Hines Ward has been brought on as a full-time offensive assistant after serving as one of the New York Jets’ four Bill Walsh coaching interns. Ward will be working with Shawn Jefferson and the wide receivers. He spent most of his time during training camp this year working with Jefferson and quickly established himself as a favorite to the receiving corps.
  • Kirby Smart announced that redshirt freshman wide receiver, Kearis Jackson broke his hand against Vanderbilt over the weekend. Jackson brought in two receptions for 31 yards against the Commodores before going down with injury. Jackson’s injury gives the rest of the receiving corps in Lawrence Cager, Demetris Robertson, Tyler Simmons, George Pickens and Matt Landers a chance to step up.
  • The Atlanta Falcons are bringing back veteran kicker Matt Bryant for a tryout this Friday. Bryant is the Falcons all-time leading scorer with 1,122 points throughout his 10-year run with the team. It is hard to imagine Bryant is coming in just for a tryout, I would be shocked if Bryant and the Falcons do not come to terms with a new contract by the end of the day on Friday. Bryant is not coming in to just try to impress the Falcons, he is coming in to win back his job as the Falcons starting kicker. Bryant has been one of the most automatic kickers in NFL history and throughout his 10-year career with the Falcons he has an 88.7% field goal percentage, while converting 99.2% of his extra points.
