Whoever mentioned the NFL preseason couldn’t be entertaining was lifeless fallacious. With gamers throughout the league attempting to win jobs and rocket up depth charts, there’s at all times a possible for electrical performs and fireworks.
We noticed an ideal instance of this with Browns QB Joshua Dobbs.
When Cleveland took on the Eagles (-1) on Saturday afternoon, Dobbs had the Browns offense driving downfield. That’s earlier than a second-down Philadelphia strain threatening the quarterback virtually sunk the possession. However not on Dobbs’ watch.
In one of many higher runs you’ll ever see within the preseason or common season, Dobbs evaded the preliminary strain, misplaced items of his jersey, scrambled previous a number of defenders (takes a breath), tight-roped the sideline, and nonetheless stored his steadiness in a ridiculous 36-yard effort you merely should see to consider:

Man. “Actual” soccer is just weeks away, however I’m having a tough time discounting Dobbs’ work on this run. I don’t know if it’s as a result of the NFL hasn’t been round for some time, however it could be one of many higher performs I’ve seen, whatever the stakes.
