Whether it’s speed, throwing, or execution it seems like Lamar Jackson is doing it all these days. NFL fans are on the edge of their seats waiting to see what Jackson does next and he didn’t disappoint against the Los Angeles Rams. Not only did the Ravens beat the Rams 45-6. Jackson was sensational again throwing for 5 touchdown passes. Now everything starts with this team’s rushing attack because Mark Ingram and Jackson are almost impossible to stop. So defenses start to lose discipline and creep up to counter against Baltimore’s ground game.
But Jackson is taking advantage of less players being in coverage and Los Angeles had to learn that the hard way. Marquise “Hollywood” Brown also did an excellent job of creating some plays when his number was called. And it’s amazing how explosive this offense is when he’s healthy and performing at a high level. There’s just too many athletes to game plan for and Greg Roman knows how to get them the ball in space. All of these factors come together and it makes for one of the most exciting brands of football we’ve seen in a while. Like John Harbaugh said there’s going to be a lot of kids wearing the number 8 jersey from here on out. Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti can go head and raise his ticket prices now because it’s time to cash-in. People will pay top dollar to watch the best athlete in football work his magic every Sunday. The way Jackson carries this franchise is on another level.
