Pittsburgh Steelers QB Joshua Dobbs

Steel City Underground presents "Plays of the Year" featuring the tops runs, catches, hits and everything else in-between from the Pittsburgh Steelers 2018 season.

How soon we forget?

Heading into the final 2018 preseason game, Joshua Dobbs was in danger of no longer being with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

A second-year player who spent his rookie season as the team’s third quarterback on the depth chart, Dobbs was embroiled in a fierce training camp competition which included veteran backup Landry Jones and newly acquired third-round pick Mason Rudolph: who many had pegged as a first round grade in the draft and were already hinting to as the future after Ben Roethlisberger’s career ends.

Dobbs would need an impressive performance in the final exhibition game to make the Steelers consider keeping him: either as the fourth quarterback on the depth chart or in favor of one of the other two backups.

With a laundry list of sustained scoring drives under his belt throughout the preseason, Dobbs would punch his ticket to a spot on the 53-man roster, supplanting Jones as Big Ben's backup.

On a cool Thursday evening at Heinz Field, the Steelers final preseason game would see them start with the ball as the second-year signal caller would get a chance to show what he was made of.

Dobbs would march the offense 79 yards, capping off the series with this touchdown run, as he avoids several defenders and soars in the air for a touchdown.
