WATCH: Dobbs continues to shine as Vikings extend lead

The Passtronaut, as he was called by his second employer in NASA, Josh Dobbs continues to electrify as Minnesota’s fill-in quarterback amid Kirk Cousins’ season-ending injury.

Dobbs shows off his play-making ability, juking his way around the entire Saints defense on the way to a sensational seven-yard touchdown run in front of the raucous crows at U.S. Bank Stadium.

Dobbs continues to make play after play for Minnesota in his first start as a Viking. He’s started this game 13-of-17 for 162 yards and that rushing touchdown, getting five different receivers involved. That includes T.J. Hockenson and his 70 yards on five receptions.

But the difference in this Minnesota offense has been Dobbs and his legs. On a crucial third-down, Kevin O’Connell calls a designed run for Dobbs with Ty Chandler as a lead blocker. Adding Dobbs as a runner, changed the numbers in the run-game, and is just another wrinkle that this Vikings offense will look to utilize as the game goes on.
