It's pretty hard to have a better opening week than Lamar Jackson had on Sunday.
Going 17-of-20 for 324 passing yards and team-record five touchdowns, the second-year quarterback became the youngest player in NFL history to finish with a perfect passer rating while leading the Ravens to a 59-10 drubbing of the Miami Dolphins.
All in all, it was a pretty spectacular start to Jackson's sophomore campaign, as he showed he can be much more than just a running back.
While the performance definitely caught the attention of those around the league, it also had the oddsmakers taking notice as well. Following Week 1, Jackson's MVP odds took a great leap.
Jackson began the season with odds hovering from 50-1 to 41-1, but after his strong showing those have changed to the likes of 18-1 and 25-1, respectively, according to multiple oddsmakers.
MVP's aren't won in just one game, but Jackson's beginning to his campaign was definitely an MVP-like performance. If he can continue that throughout the fall and winter months, those odds will continue to rise.
