Ravens Report Card: Grading Lamar Jackson vs. Redskins
The Ravens preseason is now in the books. How did Lamar Jackson do in the fifth and final preseason game:
Another preseason game, another Lamar Jackson rushing touchdown. Jackson was without a passing touchdown, but he showed the Ravens more of his ability to run the football into the end zone on a one yard bootleg. It was one of Jackson’s handful of highlights against the Washington Redskins.
Jackson finished 9-15 passing for just over 100 yards. He ran for 25 yards as well. In addition to his touchdown, he also ran for a first down on a play other quarterbacks would have been sacked. Jackson orchestrated a touchdown drive to start the game and he looked very comfortable running the offense. Let’s get to the report card:
Robert Griffin III didn’t play in this game. By Saturday night, we’ll know what that means. Jackson got the start and he did a lot with it. This will probably be out last look at what Jackson can do until next August. One thing is sure, Jackson showed an incredible amount of progress since the Pro Football Hall of Fame Game earlier this month. In his fifth preseason performance, Jackson gave Baltimore reason to hope for the future.
