Lamar Jackson was excellent this season finding his receivers across the field en route to an MVP caliber season.
As it turns out, he’s not so good at hitting targets that aren’t human.
Jackson struggled in the precision passing event, an event with moving targets labeled from one to five points and scored just two total points on 17 throws.
But Jackson’s poor performance in the first event didn’t hurt the AFC, as it won the 2020 Pro Bowl skills competition over the NFC.
“A lot of bad throws,” Jackson said of his performance in the first event. “A little wind with me. It’s all good.”
As soon as the event aired, Jackson immediately took to Twitter.
The events that followed were: The Gauntlet, Best Hands, Thread The Needle and Dodgeball.
Jackson and teammate Mark Andrews competed in the Best Hands and Thread The Needle competitions.
The duo’s obvious chemistry resulted in the second-best time, 49.4 seconds, out of four total pairings.
The next drill was another passing drill called ‘Thread The Needle,’ which Jackson fared better in. He scored 12 total points, tied for the second-best of four passers. The concept of the drill was to throw the ball past a defender guarding a wall with nine targets, each with a corresponding point total.
In the final event of the night, the AFC beat the NFC two games to zero in dodgeball — led by Jackson and Andrews’ division rival, Browns wideout Jarvis Landry.
Jackson didn’t start the night well, but thankfully for him, the next targets with numbers he’ll see will be actual receivers at the Pro Bowl on Sunday afternoon.
