After endless pre-draft calls to convert Lamar Jackson to wide receiver or running back, shutting down critics has been a main storyline for the quarterback's MVP-caliber season.
Jackson and Atlanta Hawks point guard Trae Young have both enjoyed incredible offensive output this year, prompting criticism of their play styles to disappear. Jackson himself acknowledged shutting down his critics in response to a tweet from Young.

The Baltimore Ravens' quarterback posted a perfect passer rating against the Cincinnati Bengals this week, the second time he has accomplished the feat this season. Dak Prescott, Deshaun Watson and Aaron Rodgers are the only other QBs to hit the mark this season. Jackson is the only one to do it twice.
Jackson's incredible performance against the Bengals earned him his third AFC Offensive Player of the Week award, the only player in the NFL to win three Player of the Week awards.
He will look to continue proving himself in a Week 11 offensive showdown against Watson and the Houston Texans.
