Lamar Jackson breaks another record in Ravens’ Week 3 win
The Baltimore Ravens held on for a much-needed bounce-back victory over the New England Patriots in Week 3, and they did so on the heels of another phenomenal performance from quarterback Lamar Jackson.
Jackson continues to prove his worth to the Ravens organization each week, and his performance on Sunday was just another reminder of what he’s capable of.
The former MVP finished 18-of-29 in the air for 218 yards and four touchdowns while adding 107 yards and a score on 11 carries. Jackson was the Ravens’ offense yet again, and he made a little history in the process.
That’s right. Another week, another Lamar Jackson record-breaking performance.
Jackson became the first player in NFL history to record at least three passing touchdowns and 100+ rushing yards in consecutive games. The man just can’t stop making history.
Lamar Jackson makes history for the Ravens again in Week 3
Jackson entered the 2022 season looking to bounce back following a disappointing, injury-riddled 2021 campaign. Eyeing a new contract extension, the 25-year-old looks like an early MVP candidate through three games.
Jackson now has 10 passing touchdowns to just two interceptions on the year along with consecutive games in which he rushed for 100+ yards on the ground.
It’s hard to imagine where the Ravens would be now without their franchise quarterback, which of course gives Jackson even more leverage as he searches for a new contract. Those discussions won’t resume until the offseason, however.
For now, the Ravens will relish in the play of their star QB. Jackson is proving to be one of the most valuable players in the NFL, and at this point, it would be more surprising if he didn’t set a new record next week.
That’s the type of run Lamar Jackson is on right now. He’s locked in, and the Ravens couldn’t be happier.
