Ravens QB Lamar Jackson still bothered by 2018 loss to Chiefs
Last season, the Chiefs defeated the Ravens by a score of 27-24 at Arrowhead Stadium, the same venue where their rematch will take place.
Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson is still not over that loss:
“It’s still with me right now,” Jackson said Wednesday, according to James Palmer of NFL Network. “It don’t go away until I get that opportunity again and perform very well.”
Jackson completed 13 of his 24 passes for 147 yards and a couple of touchdowns in that defeat, which occurred last December. But the second-year quarterback has come a long way since then.
Through the first couple of weeks of 2019, the 22-year-old has already eclipsed his passing touchdown total from all of 2018, as he has thrown seven touchdowns over the first two games. He has also tallied 596 yards while completing 71.9 percent of his passes and posting a passer rating of 145.2, a significant improvement from last year, even if it’s a small sample size.
As for what Jackson took away from last season’s loss to Kansas City? Not much of anything:
“Win the game. I take that from the game,” said Jackson. “Just like I said before, finish. That’s what we have to do in that type of environment, is finish.”
