How Georgia Bulldogs performed in the NFL divisional round

Georgia Bulldogs in the NFL made a significant impact in the divisional round. Eight former Bulldogs will play in the NFC and AFC championship games. The Detroit Lions are the only remaining NFL team without a former Georgia Bulldog on their roster.

Our former Georgia football player of the week in the divisional round is San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Chris Conley. Conley is a true professional. He barely played for San Francisco throughout the regular season, but he was ready when his name was called. Conley came up with a clutch 17-yard catch to help the 49ers earn a comeback win over the Green Bay Packers.
