Rookie RB J.K. Dobbins sets new franchise record with Baltimore Ravens
A lot of organizations around the NFL are regretting their decision to pass on former Ohio State running back J.K. Dobbins. Their loss has been Baltimore’s gain during the 2020 season.
On Sunday, Dobbins scored his seventh touchdown of the season during the Ravens’ 27-13 victory over the New York Giants. His plunge into the end zone also catapulted the former Buckeye into the top of the franchise’s record book. Dobbins’ 7 touchdown carries this year is an organization best for a rookie.
Dobbins finished the game with 77 yards on 11 carries and one score. Baltimore improved to 10-5 with the win. Dobbins has also scored a touchdown in five straight games for the Ravens.
