Another week, another Lamar Jackson performance for the ages.
The second-year quarterback has already set numerous records in Baltimore, just 13 starts into his professional career.
Most of his record-book entries have come thanks to his legs. The QB is a prodigious rusher, one of the most talented running signal-callers in NFL history.
That talent helped earn him more honors after his whopping 152 rushing yards against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 6.

Jackson got started on the ground early, racking up 111 rushing yards in the first half alone. He became just the third quarterback in the modern era to finish with more than 150 rushing yards, and he was rewarded with the FedEx Ground Player of the Week award.
Jackson was the first quarterback in the 17-year history of the award to even be nominated, and now he becomes the first at his position to win it.
Of course, it hasn’t just been on the ground where Jackson has impressed.
He kicked off his 2019 with a bang, throwing for 324 yards and 5 touchdowns on just 20 pass attempts against the woeful Dolphins in Week 1. For his efforts, Jackson was named the Air Player of the Week.
Jackson becomes, you guessed it, the first player in NFL history to win both the Air and Ground versions of the award in the same season, and he managed it just five weeks apart.
He really is one of the most gifted, unique athletes in NFL history. As the Ravens’ tweet says, he is “one of a kind.”
At this rate, it would be a surprise if he doesn’t break a few more barriers the rest of this season and beyond.
