In addition to being one of the NFL’s most talented quarterbacks, Lamar Jackson might be the most likable signal-caller in the league.
Both qualities were on display Thursday night in Baltimore.
The Ravens quarterback was dominant in his team’s 42-21 win over the New York Jets, even breaking Michael Vick’s single-season rushing record for a quarterback in the process. And after Jackson eclipsed Vick’s record, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady challenged the 22-year-old to a footrace with significant handicaps.
After the Ravens’ victory, Jackson offered a great reaction to Brady’s tweet.
“He probably can win that race,” a laughing Jackson said. “Rollerblades on grass? Aw, man, I’ll see what I can do. Tom still got a bit in him. I seen him, I seen him.”
