Jackson had an incredible performance in this game. When you tally everything up, it almost isn’t fair. He rushed for over 100 yards and had 238 yards passing. He had three passing touchdowns. Jackson was an efficient 20-31 passing as he set the franchise record for touchdown passes thrown in a single season. Jackson pushed his way over 3,000 yards passing. On the season, Jackson has 4,333 total yards of production and 43 total touchdowns. Jackson continues to be the most impressive player in the NFL this season.
What you have to appreciate about this performance was how tough it was to get going in Cleveland. The Ravens were having an off day before Jackson and Andrews found their groove. The story of this game was that once the Ravens woke up, the Browns were completely outmatched. Jackson’s second touchdown pass was unfathomably good. Under pressure, on a play where most quarterbacks would have been sacked, Jackson tossed a perfect strike into the end zone. The ability to make that throw was just another example of how special he is. That’s why he is leading the NFL in touchdown passes.
Jackson did a great job in this game being a leader. He didn’t let the rough start get to his head. He didn’t try to do too much or change his game because of the situation. He stayed focused and poised and the good times came back to the Baltimore offense. Jackson took advantage of the opportunities available to him. Jackson ended up having one of his better performances. The last 32 minutes of football in this game, was an absolute clinic by Jackson. On a day where it didn’t come easy, Jackson got it going for his teammates.
