Rams’ Jalen Ramsey asks Michael Vick for advice on how to stop Ravens QB Lamar Jackson
While Lamar Jackson has been terrorizing opposing defenses, the Baltimore Ravens’ quarterback has drawn comparisons to Michael Vick. Ahead of the Los Angeles Rams’ game against the Ravens, Jalen Ramsey went directly to Vick himself to get advice on how to stop Jackson.
This season, Jackson continues to transcend the NFL with his ability to be a dual-threat quarterback. The Ravens’ dynamic quarterback has thrown for 2,258 yards, 19 touchdowns, and five interceptions.
Along with his passing numbers, Jackson has garnered 781 yards and six touchdowns on the ground. If it isn’t Russell Wilson, then everyone is naming Jackson as the lead candidate to win the NFL’s MVP Award.
On the other hand, Jalen Ramsey has made his presence felt since being traded to the Rams. Since joining the Rams in Week 7, Los Angeles’ defense has allowed only 9.3 points per game.
At the same time, Jalen Ramsey is shutting down the opposing team’s best wide receiver each and every week. As a matter of fact, the All-Pro cornerback has held JuJu Smith-Schuster and Allen Robinson to a combined seven receptions for 59 yards in the past two weeks.
While Ramsey has been playing at an elite level, it’s going to take everyone on the Rams’ defense to contain Jackson. Of course, Aaron Donald can wreak havoc on the interior. But it will take Clay Matthews and Dante Fowler to set the edge to prevent Jackson from escaping the pocket.
Ramsey asked Vick on how to defend the Ravens’ electrifying quarterback, but not even he can decipher how to slow him down. Therefore, it’s going to be up to Wade Phillips to figure out a scheme to do so.
