Joshua Dobbs Accounts For 312 Yards, 2 TDS In Vikings’ Victory


Joshua Dobbs stopped for the tiniest second last week to pinch himself. When he got onto an elevator in the team hotel, the fervor from his incredible Vikings debut had barely begun to fade, as hundreds of the team’s former players had assembled for a weekend reunion.

A few former students boarded the elevator as well. Dobbs subsequently recalled that he was taken aback when they acknowledged him, expressed gratitude for his contribution to the team, and spoke enthusiastically about the rest of the campaign.

In the Vikings’ 27-19 victory over the Saints on Sunday, Dobbs continued where he left off from the previous week in Atlanta, totaling 312 offensive yards and two touchdowns.

According to ESPN Stats & Information, by doing this, Dobbs made NFL history by being the first player to accumulate 400 passing yards, 100 rushing yards, and no interceptions in his first two games with a team.

Following Jaren Hall’s concussion in Week 9 and Kirk Cousins’ season-ending Achilles injury in Week 8, Dobbs is the Vikings’ third quarterback to start in as many weeks. Dobbs was acquired by the Vikings from the Cardinals on October 31 in order to provide Hall with an emergency backup. Despite not playing in a single practice, Dobbs went on to have 224 offensive yards and three touchdowns against the Falcons.

Dobbs had the relative luxury of a full week before Sunday’s game to become familiar with the Vikings’ system and their game plan against the Saints, which involved more passing than one might have anticipated. With 23 completions in 34 attempts for 268 yards, including a 28-yard touchdown pass to tight end T.J.

Hockenson shortly before halftime, he led the Vikings to a 24-3 lead at the intermission. Along with converting two third downs and scoring on a 7-yard run after the Saints covered all four of his reads on the play, he also ran for 44 yards on eight carries.

To be sure he spent enough time understanding the game plan, Dobbs said that he ate every meal at the facility last week. He even cracked a joke, saying, “I’m not paid by the hour, so I have nowhere else to be.”

As he became serious, though, Dobbs stated he was motivated to ensure that the incredible Atlanta performance was preserved for future generations.
