Minnesota Vikings quarterback Joshua Dobbs has been one of the biggest stories in the NFL this season as he’s had remarkable success leading a team he’s barely even had the chance to practice with. And he’s even caught the attention of opposing coaches.

Joshua Dobbs has only been playing in this Vikings offense with these teammates for about three weeks, and Denver Broncos head coach was blown away by what he saw from Dobbs leading the team on Sunday night, saying “I haven’t seen anything like it.”

“Considering what he’s been through, where the year began . . . with Cleveland and then it was Arizona, and what he’s doing now,” Payton said, “there’s so much that goes into playing that position, and to see the poise he’s playing with is really remarkable. I haven’t seen anything like it.”

Ultimately, Dobbs was not able to lead his team to victory in this game as the Broncos ultimately came out on top thanks to a late touchdown drive, but it’s clear that the quarterback has made a big impact for this team so far this season and has kept them in playoff contention even despite the injury to quarterback Kirk Cousins.
