  • Georgia junior quarterback Stetson Bennett has been selected as the Manning Award Quarterback of the Week after earning the honor over seven other Manning Award Stars of the Week in the Allstate Sugar Bowl’s Facebook contest.  Bennett, making his second career start, directed the No. 3 Bulldogs to 431 yards of total offense on 77 plays in a 44-21 SEC win over No. 14 Tennessee.  He completed 16-of-27 passes for 238 yards and two touchdowns, while also adding a rushing touchdown, as he led the Bulldogs to 27 points in the second half. Bennett has completed 63 percent of his passes and tallied five touchdown throws, but most importantly, he has no interceptions as Georgia has maintained its ranking among the top teams in the country.  Also of note, he has completed 18 of 25 passes (72 percent) on third downs for 239 yards and three scores while only getting sacked once during those snaps. While the Manning Award selected 30 quarterbacks for its preseason Watch List, additional quarterbacks are expected to be added to the Watch List later in the season.  Ten finalists will be selected and the winner is scheduled to be announced following the College Football Playoff National Championship.

  • Falcons (0-5) next at the Vikings, 1 p.m. Sunday, Fox. Radio: 92.9 FM The Game.
  • COVID concerns for the Falcons. This note from Thursday: “Out of an abundance of caution following one new positive test, we have made the decision to stop all in-person work at IBM Performance Field Thursday and will conduct all operations virtually. This decision was made in consultation with the NFL and medical officials. The health and safety of our team is our highest priority.”
  • Related move: The Falcons placed rookie Marlon Davidson on the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday. It’s possible that the additional cases Thursday could end up being false positives, which could allow them to return to the facility. Until they are confirmed, Atlanta is taking precautions.
