Lamar Jackson’s cramping saga earns epic retelling by Ravens coach John Harbaugh
Everyone remembers the insane game that took place between the Baltimore Ravens and Cleveland Browns right? You know, the Week 14 matchup that had the playoffs on the line for both franchises? Or better yet, the famous “cramp” game for Lamar Jackson, where everyone speculated he left the field to go number two?
Well, John Harbaugh recalls the game from his point of view in the final minutes right before Jackson came back to help secure the victory, per James Light. The Ravens head coach talks about the game while being interviewed via zoom, breaking down the moment in a hilarious fashion.

With just two minutes left in the game, everything seemed to be going wrong for the Baltimore Ravens. The season was on the line, Lamar Jackson was nowhere to be seen, and the backup quarterback, Trace McSorley had gone down with an injury.
According to Harbaugh, he was teetering on either giving Willie Snead a shot at quarterback or just have Justin Tucker attempt a 68-yard field goal. Instead, Lamar Jackson comes back from dealing with cramps (allegedly) and saves the day by returning to the starting lineup.
It’s a game that will go down in the history books as it was one of the most electrifying games of the season. With the Ravens and Browns both in the AFC North, we should be witnessing some solid competition next year. Luckily for football fans, these teams face off twice every year, and with both franchises becoming powerhouses in the league, look for them to battle it out next season for the AFC North crown.
