JK Dobbins adds to impressive performance with longest TD run of rookie season
J.K. Dobbins is making it look easy, even with the box stacked against him.
The Baltimore Ravens running back, formerly of Ohio State, pieced together a 72-yard run on Sunday afternoon at the Cincinnati Bengals. With eight defensive players in the box, Dobbins still managed to get out between the guards, squeeze through a tight space and then showed off some serious speed for his second touchdown of the game.
And let’s shout-out the control at the line of scrimmage by the Ravens line.

It was the first multi-touchdown rushing game of his NFL career for the rookie running back. Dobbins was a second-round pick of the Ravens in last April’s NFL Draft, selected No. 55 overall. Including his multiple touchdowns in Week 17, he now has a touchdown in six straight games.
The touchdown run put the Ravens up 38-3. Yea, this one is over.
The long run gave Dobbins 160 rushing yards on the afternoon on 13 carries to go along with his two rushing touchdowns. It hasn’t been a bad afternoon running the ball for Dobbins or fellow Big Ten running back Gus Edwards.
Edwards, who played one season at Rutgers as a graduate transfer, had 60 rushing yards on 12 carries.
