3 things Baltimore Ravens must build on against the Packers
3. Lamar Jackson needs to keep putting points on the board:
The Ravens haven’t showcased their full group of starters on offense. That being said, Lamar Jackson has two 2019 drives under his belt and they both ended with a score. The ultimate goal of the offense is to score so this is what we need to keep seeing from number eight. The Ravens are trying to get positive work in while not revealing too much about the new offense.
It’s a delicate balance, but being productive in the preseason is something that needs to continue. If Jackson gets on a roll in the preseason, it could give him a lot of confidence for the regular season. When Joe Flacco was the quarterback, you knew what you were getting year in and year out. With Jackson under center, the preseason work is all the sudden very meaningful. Positive habits can be planted in the preseason and blossom during game winning drives when the games count.
For Jackson the goals are fairly simple: Get in, get out, score touchdowns without taking much damage. The first preseason game wasn’t an amazing performance but it was a solid start. Now the offense needs to take the next step. A couple touchdown tosses from Jackson could be big for this team, even if it is the preseason.
