Ravens running back JK Dobbins says bad play calls and the absence of Lamar Jackson are the reason Baltimore’s season ended with a loss at Cincinnati on Sunday night.
Dobbins said if the Ravens had Jackson out with a knee injury that lingered longer than expected, they would have beaten the Bengals.
“If we had Lamar, we would wintoo,” Dobbins said, via ESPN’s Jamison Hensley .
Dobbins was disappointed that he finished the game with 13 carries for 62 yards and four catches for 43 yards, saying he should have touched the ball more than 17 times.
“I’m a guy who feels like if I’m on the field all the time, I can help this team win, and I wasn’t. It’s the playoffs. Why am I not there? Twelve carries. It’s the playoffs,” Dobbins said, via Jeff Zrebiec of TheAthletic.com.
Dobbins said Tyler Huntley shouldn’t have been the one trying to put the ball in the end zone when he had a game-changing fumble that the Bengals returned for a touchdown.
“He should never have been in that situation. I don’t get one lead. I think I would put it back in the end zone,” Dobbins said.
Huntley’s fumble was the difference, and Dobbins says it wouldn’t have happened with him running the ball or Jackson.
