Even Deshaun Watson acknowledges that Lamar Jackson is the MVP

Even Deshaun Watson acknowledges that Lamar Jackson is the MVP

When an MVP candidate calls Lamar Jackson the MVP, you know Jackson is having a great year.

That's what happened today after the Baltimore Ravens thrashed the Houston Texans 41-7 and MVP-hopeful Deshaun Watson swapped jerseys with Jackson.

It was all love between the two quarterbacks, who have both had stellar seasons so far. Both QBs ranked in the top-5 for QBR heading into Week 11.

When signing his jersey for Jackson, Watson made sure to let him know who the real MVP is.

“I just wrote, ‘Always love, keep grinding and MVP,’" Watson said after the game. "He’s like a brother to me. Keep going and stay healthy.”

“I mean, it’s all love. It’s all respect. He played well today," Watson said. "It’s a lot of season left. Who knows what can happen? You know Russell [Wilson], me, Christian [McCaffrey], Aaron [Rodgers], who knows? It’s all showing love and respect. This game is about brotherhood. I have a lot of peace in my heart and mind. Today didn’t go our way, so we will have to hear some criticism. At the end of the day, that’s not going to stop what I’m doing. I’m going to do what I love to do at a high level.”

When one of the top competitors in the league calls someone else the MVP, those words carry extra weight. Watson's comments are a pretty good indicator of Jackson taking over the league.

If he keeps it up, Jackson should have no problem accomplishing the NFL's most impressive individual feat.

Lamar Jackson thinks Tom Brady's still got it, laughs at race challenge

Lamar Jackson thinks Tom Brady's still got it, laughs at race challenge

Tom Brady is arguably the greatest quarterback of all time, while Lamar Jackson has arguably had the best season of any signal caller in football this season.

While Brady certainly isn't known for using his legs, the Patriots quarterback challenged the speedy Jackson to a race on Thursday--but with a catch. Jackson had to wear roller blades while they ran on grass.

But Jackson didn't count out the 42-year-old veteran, saying, "he could probably win that race."

Remember, folks. We're talking about this guy.

Roller-blades or not, our money is still on Jackson.

Running back, hype man, reporter: What can’t Mark Ingram do?

Running back, hype man, reporter: What can’t Mark Ingram do?

As most people already know, Lamar "Action" Jackson is a humble guy. Despite his phenomenal season and the many records that he continues to break, he never boasts or brags about himself. 

However, that's where Ravens running back Mark “Hype Man” Ingram II comes in. 

Following the Ravens’ 42-21 victory over the New York Jets on Thursday night, Fox reporter Erin Andrews allowed Ingram to interview Jackson and let’s just say it was hilarious. 

“Man, you broke Mike Vick’s rushing record, you’re the AFC North Champions for the second year in a row, how it feel, tell me how it feel?” Ingram asked.

Jackson answered with an expected response, “It feel good but you know we have a lot of season left to play and we got two more banners to hang up.” 

Other players in the league should most definitely take notes. Ingram was natural, he had big energy and good pacing. 

He could possibly have another career as a reporter.
