Title: Stetson Bennett Shines in NFL Debut as Former College Rivals Clash
Los Angeles, CA – Former Georgia quarterback Stetson Bennett made waves in his NFL debut as he took the field for the Los Angeles Rams in a preseason showdown against the Los Angeles Chargers.
Coming off the bench, Bennett exhibited his prowess as a playmaker, passing for an impressive 191 yards and a touchdown. Throughout the game, he showcased exceptional athleticism, frequently escaping challenging situations and evading defenders.
The Georgia native’s skill was on full display during the Rams’ first series, where he engineered a remarkable 16-play, 75-yard scoring drive. As the game progressed, Bennett only grew more comfortable and demonstrated clear progress, proving his mettle as a potential asset for the Rams this season.
With an impressive completion rate of 17 out of 29 attempts and no interceptions, Bennett showed composure and decision-making beyond his years. His performance even eclipsed that of Rams’ incumbent backup quarterback, Brett Rypien.
The Chargers also saw a glimpse of their future as former TCU quarterback Max Duggan made his NFL debut. Although limited in action, mostly involved in handoffs, Duggan managed to throw for 19 yards and rush for 20 yards.
Duggan’s former TCU teammates, Derius Davis and Quentin Johnston, turned heads by making impactful plays for the Chargers. Davis electrified the field with an 81-yard punt return touchdown, while Johnston secured an 8-yard receiving touchdown.
The Chargers further showcased their offensive prowess with undrafted rookie Elijah Dotson. In the fourth quarter, Dotson dashed for two impressive touchdowns, highlighting his potential as a breakout star for the Chargers.
Notably, Chargers third-string quarterback Easton Stick delivered an impressive performance during the first half. Stick threw for 109 yards and a touchdown, leaving a lasting impression on both fans and coaches.
Despite the individual success stories, both teams faced challenges in finding the end zone. Many key starters were rested, which contributed to the offensive struggles exhibited by both squads.
The game also highlighted the progress and transition of several rookies. Steve Avila, former TCU guard, and Warren McClendon, former Georgia lineman, donned their respective team jerseys, adding an exciting layer as they adjusted to the professional football landscape.
