Ravens’ Lamar Jackson vs. Josh Allen sets NFL record for most rushing yards between 2 QB’s entering game
The Baltimore Ravens will square off against the Buffalo Bills in Week 14 in a highly anticipated matchup. Ahead of Sunday’s game, it was discovered that Lamar Jackson and Josh Allen will set an NFL record for most rushing yards between quarterbacks entering a game.
Jackson has put together a remarkable season with the Ravens as he’s thrown for 2,532 yards, 25 touchdowns, and five interceptions. While he’s shown vast improvement as a passer, Jackson is still dangerous with his legs as well.
Through the first 13 weeks, Jackson has gashed opposing defenses for 977 yards and another seven scores. The Ravens’ young signal-caller is on track to become the first quarterback in NFL history to have 3,000 passing yards and 1,000 rushing yards in the same season.
As for Allen, he’s helped lead the Bills to a 9-3 record as he’s passed for 2,591 yards, 16 touchdowns, and eight interceptions. Teams are also finding out that he can be dangerous as a runner with him rushing for 430 yards and eight touchdowns this year.
Altogether, Jackson and Allen have a combined total of 1,407 rushing yards thus far. The two quarterbacks will look to continue their success on the ground when the two play one another on Sunday.
Since both were selected in last year’s draft, they’ve been inexplicably compared to one another. Regardless of those comparisons, there aren’t many quarterbacks who are playing at a higher level than Jackson and Allen right now.
If Jackson is able to rush for 63 or more yards versus the Bills, he’d also set a single-season record for most rushing yards for a quarterback. The record was set by Michael Vick in 2006 when he rushed for 1,039 rushing yards for the Atlanta Falcons.
