Sunday was another record-breaking day in Lamar Jackson’s office.
The Baltimore Ravens quarterback not only got his first win against Patrick Mahoms and the Kansas City Chiefs, but he set a few milestones in the process.
Jackson’s two fast-paced TDs contributed immensely to the win from behind Baltimore, including a short run where he came in last.
According to ESPN, these runs contributed to him reaching the 100-yard touchdown in the evening, tying him to the most 100-yard running games (11) with Micra Vic.
Jackson is no stranger to setting big NFL milestones. As Sports Illustrated reminded us in January, the dynamic Gunslinger is the only quarterback in league history to have made at least 3,000 passing yards. And 1,000 racing yards in one season. The 1,206 racing yards he posted in his 2019 MVP season are the most quarterbacks in single-season history.
Sunday’s win marks the first time in Jackson’s career that he has bounced back from an 11-point fourth-quarter deficit. According to ESPN, his biggest comeback before that was three points in the 2019 match against the Steelers.
In the first two weeks of the 2021 season, Jackson is third in the league with 193 rushing yards. The Ravens are third overall in the league and have moved into the third week with 443.5 yards per game.
