Lamar Jackson broke one of Cam Newton's NFL records in Week 3

Baltimore Ravens star Lamar Jackson is already one of the most impressive rushing quarterbacks of his era, and now he's breaking NFL records.

The reigning league MVP needed 33 rushing yards in Monday night's Week 3 game against the Kansas City Chiefs to break the record for the most rushing yards by a quarterback in his first three seasons. He tallied the required yardage in the first quarter.

The previous mark was held by New England Patriots quarterback Cam Newton.

Here's an updated look at the leaderboard:

1. Lamar Jackson: 2,035

2. Cam Newton: 2,032

3. Russell Wilson: 1,877

4. Robert Griffin III: 1,480

One of the challenges for Jackson going forward is having the same longevity as Wilson and Newton, who have consistently ranked among the top tier of quarterbacks for nearly a decade.

Newton passed Randall Cunningham to move into second place for the most career rushing yards (4,955) by a quarterback in the Patriots' win over the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday. Michael Vick holds the record with 6,109 rushing yards.

It wouldn't be surprising, at this rate, if Jackson finds himself in the first or second spot on that list before his career is over.
