Robinson, while one of the game’s most impactful players, recognized his role as a rookie.
He was drafted early in the first round for a reason but seems to understand his place on the roster.
As Spake pointed out in this interview, the Falcons placed their trust in Robinson throughout the game, especially in the fourth quarter.
Up by one point, the Falcons faced a fourth down that was well within field goal range.
Instead of giving the Packers the ball back with an early field goal, the Falcons put the ball in Robinson’s hands.
He responded by gaining a first down, which ultimately led to the game-winning field goal.
Robinson finished the game with 124 rushing yards, as well as four catches for 48 yards.
He was the Falcons’ best player throughout the game, and the Packers simply had no answers for him on defense.
If Robinson can keep up this dominance throughout the season, the Falcons will have a lot of opportunities to win games.
While many teams might have strong defenses, Robinson has already proven to be a difficult player to stop, no matter who is on the other side of the ball.
