Lamar Jackson sets another record with his legs in win over 49ers

Lamar Jackson sets another record with his legs in win over 49ers

Lamar Jackson has broken the mold and stereotypes that had him classified as just a running back. But, he's still very, very good at running the football.

Throughout his marvelous 2019 season, Jackson has shown time and time again just how much of a dual-threat quarterback he is. He'll hurt you through the air, or use his speed and unreal athleticism to pick up yards on the ground.

During Sunday's win over the San Francisco 49ers, Jackson's work in the run game put him in some elite company. With 101 yards rushing, he picked up his fourth game of the season in which he tallied more than the century mark in rushing yards. By doing that, he now holds the single-season record.

Another week, another milestone for a man who may be on his way to an MVP award. At this point, it would be more surprising if Jackson didn't break a record or do something out of this world when he takes the field each gameday.

On this particular Sunday, the Ravens needed all 101 of those yards. Squeaking out a 20-17 last-second win, Jackson only threw for 105 yards through the air in what was a defensive, wet game in Baltimore. 

Yet even though it may not have been the same as his Monday night performance a week prior, the Ravens still left with a win while Jackson picked up another accomplishment.

Former Ravens defensive coordinator Dean Pees announces retirement

Former Ravens and Titans defensive coordinator Dean Pees announced his retirement from coaching Monday afternoon, just a day after Tennessee lost in the AFC Championship Game to Kansas City.

Pees, at age 70, had just finished his 47th year of coaching. He had previously been a coordinator for the Titans, Ravens and Patriots at the NFL level. He began coaching at the University of Findlay (OH) in 1979 as a defensive coordinator where he rose through the college ranks. 

Pees was in Baltimore from 2010-2017, where he started as a linebackers coach and was promoted to defensive coordinator in 2012. He won Super Bowl XLVII with the Ravens.

During his time as a coordinator, the Ravens ranked in the top 10 of scoring defenses three times, where he saw franchise greats like Ray Lewis and Ed Reed end their careers.

Pees’ defense in Tennessee this season stiffened down the stretch, as it allowed just 25 total points in the first two playoff games against New England and Baltimore. The Titans lost 35-24 to the Chiefs on Sunday.

In 10 of his 12 seasons as a defensive coordinator in the NFL, Pees led his defenses to a top 12 finish in points allowed.

Former Raven Terrell Suggs and the Kansas City Chiefs are Super Bowl-bound

Former Raven Terrell Suggs and the Kansas City Chiefs are Super Bowl-bound

Terrell Suggs and the Kansas City Chiefs defeated the Tennessee Titans 35-24 Sunday to advance to Super Bowl LIV in Miami. 

Suggs, who spent 16 seasons with the Ravens, will look to cement his Hall of Fame candidacy with a victory in his second Super Bowl appearance (Won SB XLVII) this time as a member of the AFC Champion Kansas City Chiefs.

Suggs departed from Baltimore before the 2019 season, signing a one-year deal with his hometown Arizona Cardinals before being waived mid-season. 

The Ravens were rumored to be interested in a reunion with their all-time leader in sacks but did not put in a claim, being last in waiver priority, and Suggs was claimed by the Kansas City Chiefs.



While the Ravens' 2019 season ended prematurely at the hands of the Titans, fans in Baltimore can take solace knowing that Suggs and the Chiefs helped bring the Titans' magical season to an end.

Suggs' accolades (2011 AP Def. Player of the Year, 2003 AP Def. Rookie of the Year, 7x Pro-Bowl, 1x All-Pro) will stand the test of time, but adding a second Super Bowl ring to his resume would make his Hall of Fame candidacy that much greater.
