The Georgia native looked like his college self on the play, escaping the pocket and lowering his shoulder short of the goal line before falling in for a touchdown.

While Dobbs performed well in week two, his team suffered a frustrating loss for the second straight week. Arizona led New York 20-0 at halftime and 28-14 entering the fourth quarter before the Giants scored 17 unanswered in the game’s final quarter to earn the victory.

Arizona also blew a second half lead a week before in its season opening loss at Washington.

Murray is expected to miss an extended amount of time this season and while Dobbs has started the first two games the Cardinals haven’t named him the official starter in Murray’s absence as they also have rookie Clayton Tune on the roster.

However, Dobbs has performed solid in each of the first two weeks of the NFL season despite Arizona losing both games.
