JK Dobbins scores in latest return to Ohio, tosses up O-H to crowd in Cincinnati
It is turning into the J.K. Dobbins show on Sunday for the Baltimore Ravens. The former Ohio State running back has turned in a series of strong performances over the past few games as the Ravens keep rolling along.
Taking a handoff from quarterback Lamar Jackson, Dobbins cut back, got tripped up, regained his footing, and finished off his run in the end zone. For Dobbins, it was his eighth rushing touchdown of the season and put the Ravens up 24-3 at the Cincinnati Bengals at the time.

Midway through the third quarter, Dobbins had 76 rushing yards on 10 carries along with his aforementioned four-yard touchdown run. The Ravens came into Sunday’s Week 17 at 10-5, having won their last four games.
With the third-quarter touchdown, Dobbins now has a rushing touchdown in six straight games. He was a second-round pick of the Ravens in the 2020 NFL Draft.
The former Buckeye likes running in the state where he played his college football. In Week 14 at the Cleveland Browns, he had 53 rushing yards and a touchdown.
Dobbins has really picked up steam as a feature back in the NFL. He recently discussed watching former B1G stars Saquon Barkley and Ezekiel Elliott in high school and trying to follow in their footsteps.
