ROCKFORD (WREX) — James Robinson continues to prove himself as a quality NFL running back, scoring twice in the Jaguars 39-29 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday.
He rushed into the end zone for a four-yard score, and caught a nine-yard touchdown pass. Robinson also converted a two-point conversion after his rushing touchdown. He now has six touchdowns on the year, rushing and receiving combined. He finished the day with 119 rushing yards against the Chargers, a career high for the Lutheran grad. Coming into Sunday, Robinson was ranked sixteenth in rushing yards throughout the league.
The Jaguars lost their sixth game in a row, falling to 1-6. Rookie Justin Herbert threw for 347 yards, and three touchdowns, while rushing for a touchdown leading the Chargers to their first win after four straight losses.
