Bijan Robinson reaches impressive early NFL milestone
Bijan Robinson had the first 100-yard rushing game of his career on Sunday. The rookie out of Texas is showing his worth as a first-round draft pick.
Robinson’s final stats were 124 yards rushing and 48 yards receiving. Although he wasn’t able to score, the Atlanta Falcons went on to beat the Green Bay Packers 25-24.
The Falcons took Robinson with the eighth-overall pick in this year’s draft. Robison has given the team a pretty good return on their investment so far, to say the least.

Robinson had 83 scrimmage yards and 1 receiving touchdown in his Atlanta debut. Atlanta beat the Carolina Panthers 24-10 in Week 1.
What an achievement for the rookie in just his second NFL game.
The Falcons and Robinson have a chance to move to 3-0 against the Detroit Lions in Week 3. The Lions took the Seattle Seahawks to overtime and lost on Sunday.
Kickoff will be Sept. 24 at 1 p.m. ET on FOX.
