The Ravens have enjoyed as close to a perfect start to their season on offense as possible. The key has been Lamar Jackson’s newfound passing ability, the missing element from his dynamic game last season.
Need more proof than the highlights you saw all week? How about this: Lamar Jackson tossed six touchdown passes in his entire rookie season. He already has seven before halftime of the second game of his 2019 season.
It’s not just a personal best for Jackson. Seven passing touchdowns through two weeks is already a franchise record, and Jackson accomplished it in just six quarters.
Jackson has already established a few favorite targets. Marquise “Hollywood” Brown caught two long touchdown passes in Miami, and four early passes early in Week 2.
But it’s been the tight ends Jackson really has his eyes on, and for good reason. Jackson’s accuracy has been remarkably improved in his sophomore year, but it’s been on another level when targeting his tight ends, with Jackson a perfect 20-for-20 throwing to the position early on.
For a team with lots of unproven talent in its pass-catching corps, this level of success comes as a pleasant surprise.
The Ravens have quickly become one of the most exciting offenses to watch in the NFL, thanks to both Jackson and the creative coaching staff.
Oh, and just in case you thought Jackson was a pure pocket passer now? He also has seven rushing attempts for 64 yards in the first half against the Cardinals.
Lamar Jackson is a cheat code, and this likely won’t be the last time he sets a franchise record for the Ravens this season.
