And by the time they figure it out, he's gone.
Via @NextGenStats: Ravens QB Lamar Jackson has 19 runs over the past two weeks in which he reached at least 15 MPH. That’s 9 more than any other player in that stretch. — Field Yates (@FieldYates) November 27, 2018
Jackson has 19 runs in the past two games where he's reached at least 15 miles per hour. You can pick any speedster in the league and the rookie quarterback is blowing them out of the water.
It's safe to say he provides a different threat that Joe Flacco simply did not.
Jackson hasn't thrived as a passer, with three interceptions in two games compared to just one passing touchdown, but it has been his ability on the ground that has really impressed.
Over the full season, Jackson has 29 (!) carries where he reached 15+ MPH. That's tied for 11th-most with Christian McCaffrey and Kareem Hunt.— Graham Barfield (@GrahamBarfield) November 27, 2018
With 190 yards on 37 carries and a score in two weeks, Jackson has his speed to thank for his breakout performances.
