Marino record "cool" but Ravens "on road to something else" - Jackson
After breaking Dan Marino's wins record for a quarterback under 25, the Baltimore Ravens' Lamar Jackson's focus was not on the individual achievement.
Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson played down his achievement after creating NFL history in Sunday's win over the LA Chargers, a victory that saw the Ravens move to 5-1.
Jackson and the Ravens claimed their fifth straight win with a dominant 34-6 triumph at M&T Bank Stadium.
It was a victory earned more on the legs of Baltimore's running backs and the solidity of the Ravens' defense than Jackson's dual-threat skill set.
But it saw the 2019 MVP break Dan Marino's record for the most wins by a QB before the age of 25, claiming his 35th.
Record "cool" but "we want something else", says Jackson
Speaking about the record after the game, Jackson said: "It's pretty cool. I don't know what to say after that. It's cool."
Asked if such records matter to him, he replied: "We're on the road to something else. If it happens, it happens. But we want something else.
"It's a lot of season left. We just want to keep winning. A game at a time. That's all."
Head coach John Harbaugh, however, did attach some meaning to a record focused entirely on the numbers in the win column.
"That's the biggest one [winning]," Harbaugh said. "Have people heard of that one? I know they said they haven't heard about all these records – they have heard about that one.
"I promise you that's what Lamar's most proud of, and that's the one we're the most proud of, absolutely."
Chargers QB Herbert praises Ravens' defense
The Chargers dropped to 4-2 having been held to just 208 net yards of offense.
Los Angeles had managed at least 350 in each of their previous five outings, with quarterback Justin Herbert conceding Baltimore's defense confused the Chargers with different looks.
"Yeah, it was a lot of looks that we didn't see on film and stuff they constructed for us," Herbert said.
"They did a great job at disguising their looks; bringing pressure from one way and hiding from another.
"It was looks they hadn't shown all season and stuff that you know we have to be better at to adjust to during the game. But, you know, they played a great game."
