Grading Lamar Jackson’s performance against the Oakland Raiders
How did Lamar Jackson do in his second start? It was a mix of good and bad, but there was a lot to be excited about:
Lamar Jackson had an overall strong performance against the Oakland Raiders. For the second week in a row, Jackson led the Ravens to a victory. In this game, he made much more of a mark through the air. He connected on some deep passes down the field (one beautiful strike to John Brown was called back because of a holding penalty).
Jackson was exciting. It was kind of what you expected from Jackson. He made some flashy plays, he made some mistakes and he did it through the air and on the ground. Jackson did a great job of keeping his composure. He didn’t let his interceptions, or any mistake for that matter, put him in his head. It’s time to get into the grade, but the moral of the story is that he led the Ravens to another win.
The Ravens are 2-0 with Jackson. Jackson made a strong argument for the Jackson era to begin right now. It will be hard to go back to Joe Flacco. Jackson gets a B for his performance against the Raiders and he’s keeping things looking positive.
