Ravens QB Lamar Jackson reacts to performance vs. Rams
— Kevin Merida (@meridak) November 26, 2019
Over the course of the season, Jackson has been able to put video-game-like numbers against almost every team he’s faced. That continued on Monday night where Jackson was able to complete five touchdown passes and 169 yards against Los Angeles.
At the same time, Jackson was nearly impossible to stop on the ground as he rushed for 95 yards on eight attempts. Most impressively, the second-year quarterback now has three games where he has thrown as many or more touchdowns as he’s had incompletions.
The Rams had no answers for Jackson and the Ravens’ quarterback made them pay. Without a doubt, this game could be the game that cemented Jackson’s status as the NFL’s MVP when the season comes to an end.
Through the first 12 weeks, Jackson has thrown for 2,427 yards, 24 touchdowns, and only five interceptions. Along with that, Jackson is closing in on 1,000 rushing yards with 876 rushing yards and six touchdowns thus far.
If Jackson can continue his impressive campaign, he will become the first quarterback in NFL history to throw for over 3,000 yards and rush for 1,000 yards in the same season. Not even Michael Vick or Randall Cunningham can say they achieved that feat.
With the Ravens continuing to steamroll their opponents, Jackson has become must-watch television under center. While everyone is raving about his weekly performances, Jackson remains humble and understands that there is still work to be done to finish the season.
