Lamar Jackson Secures MVP Award With Another Stellar Performance on National Stage

Lamar Jackson is now head and shoulders above everyone else in winning the coveted NFL MVP award.

Last night “Action Jackson,” as his NFL peers call him, whipped up on the New York Jets in Baltimore, tossing the pigskin for 212 yards and five touchdown passes, tying his single-season career-high for most touchdown passes in a game. More importantly, the Ravens blasted the Jets by a score of 42-21 on Thursday Night Football ‑- a chance for the national audience to also determine that there is no better player in the game today than Lamar Jackson. The Ravens also clinched the AFC North for the second straight year.

Jackson on the year now has 33 touchdown passes to just six interceptions, and 2,889 yards passing on the season. Right now, he is ranked first in the league in passing touchdowns and first in the game with an 81.2 QBR.
