Lamar Jackson is going to need to find a larger trophy case sooner rather than later.

The breakout star of the 2019 NFL season, and prohibitive MVP favorite, just won his fourth AFC Offensive Player of the Week award of the year already. 

Jackson won this week on the back of his stellar Monday Night Football debut, in which he threw for 169 yards, ran for 95 more, and tossed five touchdown passes. He could have easily rushed for another touchdown, but he tripped at the one yard line.

What stood out most Monday night was Jackson and the offense’s hyper efficiency. They became the first team in more than a decade to score a touchdown on their first six drives of the game, and it was the third straight performance in which no Jackson-led drives resulted in a punt.


The list of Jackson’s accomplishments this season are already historic, and he just continues adding to them. He’s still just 22-years old, the youngest player to win the award four times in a single season. And he’s only one more award away from tying the all-time record.

Barring anything unforeseen, it’s hard to imagine a player other than Jackson winning the MVP race this year. His stardom is as bright as anyone’s in the league.

This is the season of Lamar Jackson, and his impressive resume isn’t done growing yet.
