Lamar Jackson’s 2019 season was one for the record books and one that will go down in NFL lore for its greatness. Naturally, he is your 2019 NFL MVP.
He led the NFL in passing touchdowns. He led the NFL in total touchdowns. He set the single-season record for quarterback rushing yards. He guided the Baltimore Ravens to a 14-2 regular-season record. To the surprise of no one, he won the NFL Honor’s most prestigious award: the league MVP. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you, Lamar Jackson.
If you watched Lamar Jackson in 2019 this shouldn’t come to the surprise of anyone. Jackson was simply the most dominant player in the league with his historically great numbers. Like we mentioned above, Jackson led the NFL in passing touchdowns (36) and total touchdowns (43) in 15 starts. Consider the fact that he would get pulled from games because the Ravens would be so far ahead on the scoreboard and we can only imagine how much better those numbers would’ve been.
Lamar Jackson reminded many of Michael Vick when he was coming out of college, but “Action” Jackson did things Vick could never dream of doing. Jackson became the first player in NFL history to rush for over 1,000-yards and pass for 3,000-yards in a single-season. Jackson and Vick are the only quarterbacks in NFL history to rush for over 1,000-yards in a single-season, but Jackson smashed Vick’s record with 1,206-yards. That’s just outright absurd.
To Jackson’s credit, he developed tremendously from year-one to year-two as a passer. Jackson increased his completion percentage from 58.2% as a rookie to 66.1% this past year. Jackson also had a 6:1 touchdown/interception ratio while throwing a touchdown pass to nine different players.
Lamar Jackson was the biggest reason that the Baltimore Ravens went on a 12-game winning streak and ultimately ended the season with a league-best 14-2 record. Baltimore held the NFL’s top-scoring offense, averaging 33.2 PPG. The 2019 Ravens also recorded the most team rushing yards ever in a single-season behind Jackson’s aforementioned team-leading 1,206-yards.
If you haven’t figured it out by now, Lamar Jackson was the most important player to any team in 2019. To the surprise of no one, he is your NFL MVP for the 2019 season.
