Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson: By the numbers

BALTIMORE — Quarterback Lamar Jackson had another stellar performance in Week 17 against the Miami Dolphins, strengthening his candidacy for NFL MVP.

Jackson completed 18 of 21 passes (85.7%) for 321 yards and five touchdowns, finishing with a perfect passer rating (158.3) for the third time in his career.

He threw the touchdown passes to players from every skill position – running back Justice Hill, wide receiver Zay Flowers, tight end Isaiah Likely (two), and fullback Patrick Ricard.

“I think you look too much into statistics and all of that. I don’t even know exactly what the numbers are, but we’re talking about a guy that’s up for the MVP candidate,” wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. said. “The way that [Jackson] leads this team. The way that he … He just always keeps us alive, and the energy that he has every day coming into work – he’s our general. He’s our leader. He’s just done a phenomenal job this season.”

Jackson also became the second quarterback in NFL history, joining Ben Roethlisberger, to produce multiple outings with a perfect passer rating and at least five touchdown passes.

Jackson’s three games with a perfect passer rating are tied with Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, Kurt Warner and Roethlisberger for the most in NFL history.

Jackson tied Dak Prescott for the third-most seasons (three) in NFL history with at least 20 touchdown passes and five rushing TDs, trailing only Josh Allen (five) and Cam Newton (four).

Jackson also recorded his third 800-yard rushing season, breaking a tie with Michael Vick (two) for the most by a quarterback in NFL history.

“He’s been showing that to you guys all year long,” Likely said. “It’s great to know that he’s finally getting chants of ‘MVP. MVP.’ [It’s] well-deserved and well earned.”
