Rookie JK Dobbins gives Ravens the lead with his first TD in NFL Playoffs
All J.K. Dobbins does is score touchdowns. That’s the way it seems, at least, over the last two months.
The Baltimore Ravens running back, by way of Ohio State, put his team up 17-10 over the Tennessee Titans with 9:01 left in the third quarter of an AFC Wild Card game. His touchdown run capped off a 10-play, 77-yard drive that 5:59 off the clock.

It is now seven straight games for Dobbins with a rushing touchdown. The rookie running back had 805 rushing yards and nine touchdowns on the ground in the regular season.
He has 925 all-purpose yards total in 2020.
The four-yard touchdown run saw Dobbins follow some good blocking down the left side of the line, pinging and ponging his way into the end zone through a mass of bodies – still standing.
Dobbins, a second-round pick of the Ravens in last April’s NFL Draft, has come on strong in recent weeks as Baltimore closed out the regular season with five straight wins. The latest score by Dobbins gives him a touchdown in seven straight games.
Ohio State running backs must like something about the cold weather, with Trey Sermon having put together several strong performances in recent weeks as well. No. 3 Ohio State plays No. 1 Alabama on Monday night in the College Football Playoff Championship.
