It was a varied Monday night for quarterback Ravens Lamar Jackson.
After throwing his 100th career touchdown pass in the first quarter and giving Baltimore a 7-0 lead over the New Orleans Saints, Jackson moved to fifth place in NFL history for his hasty yards by quarterback.
In just 66 games, Jackson amassed 4,253 yards on the run and counted past Hall of Fame quarterback Steve Young. Only Russell Wilson (4802), Randall Cunningham (4928), Cam Newton (5628) and Michael Vick (6109) have more, each having played at least 148 games.
According ESPN statistics and informationJackson is the second-ever NFL player to score 100 touchdowns and 20 hurried touchdowns by the age of 26, joining Josh Allen of the Buffalo Bills.
Playing without top winger Rashod Bateman, star Mark Andrews and defenders Gus Edwards and JK Dobbins, Jackson took an early offensive against the Saints. He hit rookie Isaiah Likely after passing a 24-yard touchdown in the first quarter and nearly teamed up with Josh Oliver for another score in the third quarter, but the ball was thrown slightly behind the tight end.
Jackson started 12-for-20 at 133 yards and had eight strokes for 52 yards as the Ravens led 17-6 at the end of the third quarter.
