Lamar Jackson breaks Ravens franchise record for most passing touchdowns in single season
It has been a historic 2019 NFL season for Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson. He only needed the first half in the AFC North showdown with the Cleveland Browns to add yet another franchise record to his resume.
According to NFL Research, Jackson has broken Vinny Testaverde’s mark for most passing touchdowns in a single season:
Lamar Jackson has 35 pass TD this season, passing Vinny Testaverde (1996) for the most in a single season in Ravens history.
It is likely only a matter of time before Jackson hold every notable passing record in Ravens history. One can even argue that he may do the same with their rushing records as well, however, that does not make each individual achievement any less special.
One of the biggest knocks on Jackson coming into the league was his accuracy from the pocket. Although he endured his fair share of struggles as a rookie, he made tremendous strides in the passing game this offseason and it paid huge dividends for this offense as a whole. Of course, his emergence has also led him to firmly establish himself as the frontrunner to win MVP this season. The only thing left is to cap it off with a run at the Super Bowl.
This record is indicative of the work Jackson has put in to become just as dangerous with his arm as he is with his legs. Meanwhile, tight end Mark Andrews can also take solace in the fact that he was a part of history by catching both of the touchdowns to help Jackson tie and break this historic mark.
