As great as Lamar Jackson has been so far in his young NFL career, the former MVP has not won a single playoff game in just two appearances. In 2018 when Jackson first took over from Joe Flacco and took the team into the playoffs against Phillip Rivers and the Los Angeles Chargers, the Ravens lost 23-17 after Lamar Jackson was stripped late in the game with a minute left. Taking a look at the regular season play of Lamar Jackson it’s been some of the best we’ve ever seen, ending his third NFL season with a astonishing 30-7 record in the regular season. The test comes in the post-season, where the Ravens lost again last year to a hot Tennessee Titans team led by Derrick Henry.
In his first three seasons Lamar Jackson has thrown 68 touchdowns and 18 interceptions, while rushing for 19 more touchdowns. NFL fans everywhere know the talent Jackson has during the regular season, the real test comes today against an opponent who gave him one of his two losses, the Tennessee Titans. Derrick Henry will definitely be ready for this matchup, the 2020 rushing leader is coming into this playoff game playing the best football of his career, rushing for over 2000 yards during the regular season. Can the Ravens defensive line hold up against a guy who they thought they could tackle last year?
Earl Thomas is proof most things are harder then they look.
