Lamar Jackson was special in this game. The whole entire offseason people have been asking whether he can become a good passer in the NFL. He answered that questions with a wider base, a better throwing motion and a perfect passer rating. Jackson was flat out special and he did it with only six rushing yards. We’re talking about a 324 yard, five touchdown performance. We’re talking about Jackson as a passer and not a runner. This was one of the best performances a quarterback has ever had. If you’ve been a believer in Jackson from day one, take a victory lap. If you doubted him, give Jackson the credit he deserves. This was special, next level special.
Marquise Brown only needed four receptions to rack up two touchdowns and 147 yards. This was the best performance by a rookie receiver in team history and it was one of the most impressive debuts in NFL history. Brown was a game changer and he only touched the ball four times. 36.8 yards per reception isn’t good. It’s special. This was the most exciting quarterback and wide receiver combination in the entire league yesterday.
The Ravens put up 643 yards and gave up only 200. After one NFL Sunday, the Ravens are leading the league in points scored, yards gained and yards allowed. It may have been against the worst team in the league, however they played at an incredible level. The purple and black didn’t just win this game. They took their performance to a level that even the most optimistic analysts didn’t see coming. This is a game to remember for the rest of your life.
