MMQB: Lamar Jackson on the Work He's Doing to Prevent the NFL From Catching Up to Him

  MMQB: Lamar Jackson on the Work He's Doing to Prevent the NFL From Catching Up to Him The Ravens' QB knows what people say about him. He and his coach give us a look at the areas he's trying to improve.SPARTANBURG, S.C. — The Thursday I was here, the big story coming out was Matt Rhule’s Panthers taking a step forward in their final hours of camp against the Ravens, who’d “won” the joint practice between the teams the day before. And punctuating that effort was a headline play—coming when Donte Jackson undercut a route, picked off Lamar Jackson and touched off a raucous celebration that ended with Carolina linebacker Shaq Thompson’s punting the intercepted ball into the sky and drawing a flag for taunting.

It was another record-setting day at the office for Lamar Jackson on Sunday.

Jackson's two rushing TDs contributed heavily to Baltimore's come-from-behind win, including a short run where he somersaulted into the end zone.

Those runs contributed to him reaching that 100-yard mark on the evening, tying him with Michael Vick for the most 100-yard rushing games (11) by a quarterback, according to ESPN.

Jackson is no stranger to setting major NFL milestones. As Sports Illustrated reminded us back in January, the dynamic gunslinger is the only quarterback in league history to produce at least 3,000 passing yards and 1,000 rushing yards in a single season. The 1,206 rushing yards he posted during his 2019 MVP season are the most by a quarterback in single-season history.

Sunday's victory also marked the first time in Jackson's career that he has rebounded from an 11-point fourth-quarter deficit. His largest comeback prior to that was three points in a 2019 game against the Steelers, according to ESPN.
