Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson has been breaking records ever since he entered the NFL, and he has quite a few impressive ones he can put on his resume.
So far this season, Jackson has become the first player in NFL history to record at least three passing touchdowns and 100+ rushing yards in consecutive games.
He also became the fastest quarterback to reach 4,000 career rushing yards, doing so in just 63 career games.
After five weeks of the season, Jackson has earned yet another achievement: he is the first player to rank in the top 10 of the league in touchdown passes and rushing yards since Tobin Rote and Joe Geri.
Ravens QB Lamar Jackson is arguably entering the best form of his career
Jackson, who is playing on his fifth-year option, has been biding his time in regard to securing a contract extension, and week after week his price tag seems to increase a bit more.
The central question will be whether Jackson can continue his streak of dominance for the rest of the 2022 season and into the playoffs, potentially making the Ravens serious Super Bowl contenders.
The star quarterback has been without his top wide receiver, Rashod Bateman, for a week and it remains to be seen whether Jackson’s quarterback production with his current receiver corps is sustainable.
Expect Jackson to continue tearing defenses apart as the Ravens enter a Week 6 fixture against the New York Giants.
