Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson is reinventing the way NFL quarterbacks can look and play. Taking a run-first approach in 2019, on his way to winning the MVP race with ease and dominating opponents for four quarters. With early projections out for the Ravens quarterback, Jackson is expected to break yet another record.

Jackson's projected rushing total is currently set at 909.5 yards for the 2020 season, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. While this is less than last season, it would be enough to break the all-time record for most rushing yards through the first three NFL seasons by a non-quarterback.

Currently, the owner of this record is Cam Newton, who set the mark at 2,032 rushing yards in the 2013 season. Newton played all 48 games of his first three seasons to set this mark.

Through two seasons and only 22 starts, Jackson has 1,901 rushing yards, which is 131 shy of tying the record. If he stays close to his average of 80.4 rushing yards per game last season, we should see him easily break this record in Week 2.

Newton was considered one of the better mobile quarterbacks in NFL history by many, after setting this record. The fact that Jackson has nearly the same amount of yards after less than two seasons is pretty incredible and shows that we have truly never seen someone like him before. So, sit back and enjoy history being made this season.
