The chants are only going to get louder and louder. Especially if Lamar Jackson keeps playing like he did on Monday Night Football this week. The Baltimore Ravens’ quarterback never gave the Rams a chance in Los Angeles, dominating them at every single turn as he continued to show his MVP credentials in a 45-6 romp. Jackson threw five touchdown passes, and in doing so became the youngest man, at 22, to have done so twice.
On top of that he rushed for 95 yards as well, making him the only player to have ever done rushed for more than 50 and had four or more touchdown tosses. He also clinched 3,000 yards passing and 1,500 rushing on for the season, a second consecutive year he’s done that. All in all, he was 15 of 20 for 169 yards, which doesn’t look like much until you factor in all the running, too. He didn’t even play the last 14 minutes and change, either, so just imagine what more he could have done. The Ravens defense also deserves praise, as they held Jared Goff to just over 200 yards passing, held Todd Gurley to only 22 yards, and had two interceptions as they held the Rams to nearly nothing on their own turf. With the win the Ravens are now 9-2, while the Rams are now 6-5.
