The Minnesota Vikings traded for Joshua Dobbs five days ago. Now he's playing for them, trying to lead them to a win against the Atlanta Falcons.

Rookie fifth-rounder Jaren Hall started Sunday's game for Minnesota, but he left early due to concussion. Dobbs has had some expected hiccups, but now he has the Vikings in prime position to beat the Falcons, who started Taylor Heinicke in place of the benched Desmond Ridder themselves.
