The Baltimore Ravens are coming off of their best win all season against the San Francisco 49ers. On Christmas night with the spot light on them, and with many analysts, and the odds makers taking the 49ers to beat the, the Ravens went on the road and performed an absolute smack down on the 49ers with the game only being close in the first quarter.
Lamar is now the most probably player to take home the NFL’s most distinguished individual honor this year, and it is definitely deserving. This will be the second time Jackson takes home the MVP, but he hasn’t had that much playoff success just yet in his career. Lamar has only played in four playoff games in his career so far and that number is quite small due to the fact that he has suffered some late season injuries throughout his career.
However, in those four games Lamar is 1-3 and hasn’t played close to his best football. Now, as he will probably take home is second MVP award in such a short time, we will need to see much better football from Lamar this time around. He looks healthy and the Ravens are playing amazing so it would be a major disappointment if the Baltimore Ravens do not go far into the playoffs.
Lamar Jackson Of The Baltimore Ravens Needs To Step Up This Post Season
Lamar Jackson was picked by the Baltimore Ravens at the end of the first round, and he made a famous quote when he got drafted. The quote highlighted his supreme confidence in himself and what he is all about, and this is definitely the best year in his career so far to cash in on that bold statement. Lamar stepped off the podium for an interview and he said:
“They are going to get a Super Bowl out of me. Believe that.”
While Lamar has been unbelievable and by the end of the year he will probably be a two time NFL MVP, his playoff resume is far from what it should be with how high caliber of a player Jackson is. This is the best year to cash in on that famous line as Lamar is healthy and the Ravens have been looking unstoppable.
Before they get to the post season they have a huge game coming up against the Miami Dolphins, which should have major implications for who will walk away with the #1 seed in the AFC. They cannot feel complacent after a huge win on the road, but have to continue that hot streak against Miami if they want to take home the one seed and get a very needed first round bye in the playoffs.
“I’m trying to win. I don’t really care about the stats,” Lamar Jackson

J.J. Watt takes aim at NFL general managers on behalf of 8⃣:
"Everybody in this offseason went out of their way to say 'We don't want [Lamar Jackson]. We're not interested.' If your GM said that, fire him."
