Josh Dobbs helped the Vols win games in the final minutes and seconds of games during his collegiate career. He helped the Vols’ charge back on the road down two scores against South Carolina on the road in 2014, helped bring the Vols back against Georgia in 2015, and tossed the game-winning Hail Mary as time expired against Georgia in 2016.
Now he’s winning games in clutch moments in the NFL as well.
Dobbs’ night started with a bang in the Pittsburgh Steelers’ final preseason game. He hit another former Vol, Justin Hunter, on a 58-yard touchdown in the first half for the Steelers’ first touchdown of the game.
But unfortunately for Dobbs and the Steeelers’ offense, that would be the only touchdown they would score for quite a while. But Dobbs’ next score proved to be huge.
With just nine seconds remaining in the game, Dobbs took a shotgun snap from the Carolina Panthers’ one-yard line, rolled out, and sprinted into the end zone with a little leap with mere seconds left on the clock to give Pittsburgh the dramatic win.

Dobbs turned in a solid night overall, completing 16 of his 23 passes for 212 yards and a touchdown along with that final rushing touchdown. The biggest part for Dobbs aside from the game-winning score was he played a clean game; Dobbs didn’t have a turnover in the game.
Pittsburgh’s preseason is now over, and Dobbs had a fairly up and down first preseason with the Steelers. But he capped it off about as well as he could have.
