Ravens coach John Harbaugh not concerned about Lamar Jackson’s running
The Baltimore Ravens have been on a roll as of late. The team has won four out of the last five games with rookie quarterback Lamar Jackson giving the franchise a different dynamic at the position with the playoffs right around the corner.
Jackson made NFL history in Week 15 with his feet as continues to keep opposing defenses on their heels with his ability to run the ball like a top-tier running back. Although this is an impressive feat in his first year in the league, the rookie might see some teams start to clamp down with an emphasis on stopping his ability to be a force on the ground.
However, head coach John Harbaugh isn’t concerned about the number of rush attempts Jackson is having from week to week, via Jamison Hensley of ESPN.
Lamar Jackson has run the ball more than any other quarterback in his first five starts in the Super Bowl era, but coach John Harbaugh isn’t worried about the Baltimore Ravens rookie first-round pick’s rushing attempts.
“I think that’s all going to work out over time,” Harbaugh said.
The Ravens are in the mix for one of the two AFC Wild Card sports along with the Los Angeles Chargers, Indianapolis Colts, Tennessee Titans, Miami Dolphins, and Cleveland Browns. It could very well be the Ravens and Chargers that lock up those spots, but anything can happen in the final two weeks of the regular season.
Baltimore will face two of those teams in contention for those playoff spots in Week 16 and Week 17. Jackson and company will go on the road to take on the Chargers on Dec. 22 followed by the regular-season finale against the division rival Browns on Dec. 30.
