Lamar Jackson Has More Rushing Yards Than Four NFL Teams This Season
By Zach Brunner
Lamar Jackson has been a cheat code this season, picking apart teams with both his legs and arm. For good reason, he is the NFL MVP frontrunner, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. In fact, Jackson has been so dominant as a runner, he's actually out-rushing four entire teams by himself.
Jackson has totaled 977 yards on the ground this season, which is the ninth most in the league and the most among all quarterbacks. He also leads the NFL in yards per carry (7.0) and he has scored seven rushing touchdowns, which is tied for the ninth-most scores in the league.
Individually, Jackson has totaled more rushing yards than the Miami Dolphins (753), New York Jets (871), Atlanta Falcons (891) and Cincinnati Bengals (936). While none of these teams are great, there are some big names at running back with these teams, including Le'Veon Bell, Joe Mixon and Devonta Freeman.
This is impressive by itself, but when accompanied by the fact that Jackson has also completed 66.5 percent of his passes for 2,532 yards (No. 18 in NFL) and 25 touchdowns (No. 2 in NFL), it makes Jackson's record-breaking season even more outstanding.
