Never Ordinary Moments with Commanders RB Brian Robinson Jr.

At bet365, we don’t do ordinary.

And neither does Washington Commanders running back Brian Robinson Jr.

Robinson has emerged as one of the NFL’s top backs since he became the Commanders’ starter in Week 6 of the 2022/23 season, and his start to 2023/24 proves he’s only getting stronger.

In Washington’s Week 2 come-from-behind win over the Denver Broncos, he rushed for 87 yards and caught two passes for a career-high 42 receiving yards. Robinson found the end zone early in the fourth quarter to give the Commanders their first lead of the game, then again six minutes later to go up 35-24.

Robinson’s pair of touchdowns capped off an 18-point comeback, the franchise’s largest comeback victory since overcoming a 21-point deficit against the Detroit Lions on November 4, 1990.  The Commanders are 2-0 for the first time since 2011.

“My number was called,” Robinson said about his fourth quarter performance. “That’s when I got to show up the most, in those clutch times to really show what type of player you are.” 

What makes Brian Robinson Jr. ‘Never Ordinary’?

Robinson loves to prove people wrong.

“You never know with me,” Robinson said. “You can come up with all these theories and think about all the stuff that you think I can’t do, until I do it.”

“I never want to be predictable on the football field. If somebody thinks I’m just a power back, I’ll show them I got agility. If somebody thinks I’m slow, I’ll show them I got a little speed. If somebody thinks I can’t catch, I’ll show you how high I can jump.”

Through Week 2, Robinson has done just that. 

He’s one of two players in the NFL to record 2+ rushing touchdowns and a receiving touchdown so far, and his contributions have meant Washington’s best start to a season in more than a decade.
