Washington Commanders running back Brian Robinson is a key talking point of the NFL today for two reasons.
The first and most obvious: He played a pivotal role in helping the Commanders squeak past the Atlanta Falcons 19-13 for a third straight victory. Robinson finished the game with 105 rushing yards on 18 carries to go along with two receptions for 20 yards and one receiving score.
After the game, Robinson continued to be the talk of social media by wearing a giant-sized hat. As it turns out, one of his friends runs a company that manufactures huge hats, and Robinson even told reporters he could help them get one.
With a hat as awesome as that one, of course social media is going to have a lot to say. Here are some of the best reactions from Twitter.
Hey, the holiday season is just around the corner. If you haven’t yet finished your Christmas shopping, you can thank Mr. Robinson for the awesome gift idea.
The Commanders drafted Robinson in the third round, 98th overall, back in April. He’s been one of the most productive rookie running backs of 2022, recording 362 rushing yards and two touchdowns on 108 carries.
Robinson’s rookie story has been nothing short of moving and inspirational. On Aug. 28, he was shot twice in his right knee during a robbery attempt. He thankfully avoided life-threatening injuries and was released from the hospital one day later.
The Commanders have won six of eight games with the Alabama product in the lineup. Following an ugly 1-4 start on the year, the Commanders have since rallied for victories in six of their last seven games.
Robinson and the Commanders will try to continue the momentum going when they visit the NFC East rival New York Giants next Sunday.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
