Ravens’ Lamar Jackson is the AFC Offensive Player of the Month for November
Lamar Jackson continues to cause headaches for opposing defensive coordinators with the Baltimore Ravens and is being rewarded for doing so. With December beginning nearly a week old, Jackson has been named the AFC’s Offensive Player of the Month for November.
During the month of November, Jackson was absolutely brilliant throwing the ball, completing 76.2 percent of his passes. In his 64 completions, he totaled 777 yards, 13 touchdowns, and zero interceptions.
To go along with his passing numbers, Jackson also gashed opposing defenses for 300 rushing yards and another three scores. While his individual numbers are staggering, he has also led Baltimore to a franchise-best eight-game win streak.
When people speak about the NFL’s Most Valuable Player, Jackson’s name is the first one that tends to be mentioned. But for good reason, as he’s on pace to finish the year with 3,376 passing yards, 33 touchdowns, and six interceptions.
As for his rushing statistics, Jackson is on track to rush for 1,302 yards and nine touchdowns with his legs. Provided that, Jackson could become the first quarterback in NFL history to throw for 3,000 yards and rush for 1,000 yards in the same season.
Not even Michael Vick or Randall Cunningham can say they achieved those numbers during their exciting careers. That is what makes Jackson’s sophomore season in the NFL so special.
While Jackson will humbly accept the AFC’s Offensive Player of the Month Award, the young quarterback has bigger plans ahead. One of them involves the Ravens getting a first-round bye when the NFL playoffs begin in January.
