Kicker Justin Tucker may have sealed the deal in the Baltimore Ravens‘ overtime victory over the Minnesota Vikings in Week 9, but the man of the game was, as always, star quarterback Lamar Jackson.

Jackson rallied from a tough first half to lead Baltimore to their sixth win of the season, going 27-of-41 for 266 yards and recording three touchdowns against two interceptions.

You can’t talk about Jackson without also discussing his rushing stat line: Jackson carried the ball 21 times for 120 rushing yards as well.

It definitely wasn’t his best night, but somehow Jackson still broke not one, not two, but seven records in Week 9.

Take a look:

  1. He became the first quarterback in NFL history to record multiple games with three passing touchdowns and at least 100 rushing yards.
  2. He tied Cam Newton as the only quarterback in league history to have at least 500 rushing yards in the first four seasons.
  3. He recorded his 22nd career 75-yard rushing game, surpassing Michael Vick for the most in NFL history.
  4. He recorded his third career game with at least 250 passing yards and 100 rushing yards, tying Newton for the most in NFL history.
  5. He recorded his ninth career game with at least 200 passing yards and 75 rushing yards, tying Russell Wilson for the most in NFL history.
  6. This was his 15th straight game with a touchdown pass, tying the Ravens franchise record he set in 2019-20.
  7. This was his 12th straight win vs NFC teams, tying Ken Stabler for most consecutive wins by a quarterback vs. NFC to begin a career.

Ravens QB Lamar Jackson breaks records for breakfast

As you can see, the most frequently used phrase in the list above is “most in NFL history.”

Jackson now ranks among some of the best dual-threat quarterbacks to play the game including Michael Vick, Cam Newton, and Russell Wilson, and he didn’t even look spectacular.

In fact, he looked rather…average.

At this point, Jackson breaking records is synonymous with the Ravens playing NFL games. Week after week, the sheer volume of articles and tweets highlighting Jackson’s historic stats may make his records seem less substantial.

He’s been achieving so many great feats that by now, they don’t seem “great” anymore, just normal. Part of Jackson’s daily routine, like eating cereal or brushing his teeth.

In Week 9 against Minnesota, Jackson continued to make the extraordinary look ordinary, and that’s one of the most special traits any quarterback can have. Your move, Patrick Mahomes.
