WATCH: Dobbs to Mattison cuts Falcons lead before halftime

Joshua Dobbs was back at his 32-yard line and ready to be sacked by Atlanta Falcons nickel cornerback Dee Alford on third-and-long.

Instead, he not only finds his way out of it, he finds daylight down the sideline and, behind a convoy of Minnesota Vikings, gets all the way down to the 2 for the first down.

Two plays later, Dobbs finds Alexander Mattison on a flare to the front pylon and the Vikings are down 11-10 to the Falcons right before halftime.

This game has been a war of attrition that General George S. Patton himself would look at in awe. Quarterback Jaren Hall and wide receiver K.J. Osborn have both been ruled out with concussions. The Falcons have injuries of their own on the offensive end.

Dobbs’ touchdown comes off a rough start as he has allowed five points off of a safety and a fumble that Atlanta almost returned for a touchdown.
