Dual-threat quarterback Lamar Jackson has been a difference maker for the Baltimore Ravens ever since he took over the starting job. But he is no longer just a gadget player, proving to be a weapon when he gets the opportunity to touch the ball on every single down. Teams don't know when Jackson is going to run the ball now that he isn't solely a Wildcat option. 


And by the time they figure it out, he's gone.

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. 

With 190 yards on 37 carries and a score in two weeks, Jackson has his speed to thank for his breakout performances.
