Want to hear the craziest stat of the day in the NFL?
Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson has gone 17-1 (!!) straight up against NFC opponents in his NFL career. It just so happens that Lamar and the 6-2 Ravens get to face an NFC opponent in the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday in Week 9.
Jackson isn't too worried about the conference he plays against, but it's an insanely impressive stat, to say the least.
The Ravens are favored by 5.5 points at home in this game against a Seattle team that is 5-2 on the season and is coming off back-to-back wins in Week 7 and Week 8 against the Arizona Cardinals and Cleveland Browns.
This is one of the better games on Sunday's slate, but the Ravens could have a massive edge because of this Jackson stat.

Lamar Jackson owns the NFC in his NFL career
The only NFC team to beat Jackson in his NFL career is the New York Giants. That loss came last season.
Outside of that, Jackson is 17-1 as a starter against the NFC.
This season, Lamar and the Ravens are 5-3 against the spread, so they wouldn't be a terrible bet to cover against the Seahawks, who have also been an impressive ATS team -- going 4-2-1.
If bettors want to play it safe, taking the Ravens simply to win the game won't be as lucrative of a bet, but Jackson's record against the NFC suggests that he's about as close to a sure thing as possible to win this football game.
In his career, Jackson is 26-8 at home as a starter, another impressive mark. The Ravens need a win to keep pace in the AFC for the No. 1 seed, so this is one that Lamar -- and Ravens fans -- would love to have.
