Baltimore Ravens' Lamar Jackson makes NFL quarterback history
Following his record-setting display on Sunday Ravens quarterback Jackson reacted to his latest milestone in a rather reserved and 'cool' manner.
Lamar Jackson revelled in another NFL record after leading the Baltimore Ravens to a 34-31 overtime win against the Minnesota Vikings.
Raven Jackson makes history
Jackson posted his 12th career 100-yard rushing game (including playoffs) – a record for quarterbacks in the NFL – on Sunday.
The former MVP moved past four-time Pro Bowler Michael Vick, who achieved the feat in 11 games across his 13-year career.
Jackson, though, matched Vick in the regular season with his 10th 100-yard rushing game.
"Of course, I respect [Vick's] game. That's cool," Jackson said after rushing for 120 yards on 21 carries at home to the Vikings.
"I don't know what to say. That's pretty cool, though."
Jackson completed 27 of 41 passes for 266 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions in Baltimore.
"We just had to do what we had to do to get the victory," Jackson said. "We just ran for a lot today. That's just what it was."
Jackson also registered his 22nd career 75-yard rushing game, surpassing Vick, while he tied Cam Newton for the most games with at least 250 passing yards and 100 rushing yards (three) in league history.
With his ninth career performance with at least 200 passing yards and 75 rushing yards, Jackson tied Russell Wilson for the most in NFL history, while his 15th consecutive game with a touchdown pass matched a franchise record he set in 2019-20.
"There are no long-term sustainability observations. That's not even relevant," Ravens head coach John Harbaugh when asked whether Jackson's running game was sustainable.
"Would you rather not run 21 times and lose the game? It's crazy to even suggest that."
