The Baltimore Ravens absolutely destroyed the Cincinnati Bengals. Here is a look at the three things that went right:
1. Lamar Action Jackson
The Baltimore Ravens were led by another MVP caliber performance from Lamar Jackson. Jackson hit Marquise Brown deep down the field on the opening possession before finding Mark Andrews in the end zone a few plays later. Jackson started off hot and he didn’t cool off at all. In the first half, Jackson completed all 10 of his passes for 171 yards and two touchdowns. Jackson had 19 rushing yards in the opening 30 minutes of the game. It was reminiscent of the season opener against the Miami Dolphins. Jackson played his best football from the start of this one.
Jackson got the third quarter off to a good start for the offense. He made one of the most unbelievable runs you will ever see. He had a 47 yard run that words won’t do justice. He made a defender miss, then a spin move got him in the open field and he was gone. Jackson continued to show that he could be the best athlete in the entire league. Jackson was simply unbelievable in this game. Jackson followed it up with another touchdown drive where he found Marquise Brown for a touchdown.
Jackson finished his work for the day before the third quarter was over. When the Ravens went into the fourth quarter, Robert Griffin III was the quarterback. Jackson ended up with an incredible stat line. He was 15-17 passing for 223 yards and three touchdowns. Jackson ran the ball for 65 yards and a touchdown. Doing the math that’s 288 total yards and four touchdowns. MVP! MVP! MVP! That’s the only possible reaction to this incredible performance.
