Ravens QB Lamar Jackson made major impression on the Seahawks defense

Lamar Jackson may have completed just nine of his 20 passes for 143 yards during the Baltimore Ravens’ 30-16 win over the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, but his versatility impressed the Seahawks.

“I always wanted to play against Michael Vick,” said Seahawks pass rusher Jadeveon Clowney, according to Matt Calkins of The Seattle Times. “I guess I got the new era with Lamar Jackson. He did his thing today. … He might be the fastest guy I ever chased with the ball in his hands. He can make anything happen for that team, and they’re all on the bandwagon with him getting what they’re supposed to be getting out of their quarterback. We got a great one, too.”

Jackson carried the ball 14 times for 116 yards and a touchdown, marking his second straight 100-yard rushing performance. Last week, Jackson toted the ball 19 times for 152 yards and a score in a victory over the Cincinnati Bengals.

On the season, the second-year quarterback has thrown for 1,650 yards, 11 touchdowns and five interceptions while completing 63.3 percent of his passes and posting a passer rating of 94.1. In addition, he has racked up 576 yards and three scores on the ground while averaging an NFL-best 6.9 yards per attempt.

Jackson, who played his collegiate football at the University of Louisville, was originally selected by the Ravens in the first round (32nd pick overall) of the 2018 NFL Draft.

He took over the starting quarterback job midway through last season.

Baltimore improved to 5-2 with he victory and will now head into its bye before having to host the New England Patriots on Nov. 3.
