BALTIMORE — Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson has taken a major step as a passer this season, but he reminded everyone Sunday that he remains the greatest running quarterback in NFL history.
Jackson recorded his 12th career 100-yard rushing game (including the postseason), which set an NFL record for quarterbacks. In his fourth NFL season, Jackson moved past Michael Vick, who had 11 across his 13-year career.
Jackson has produced 10 100-yard rushing games during the regular season, which ties Vick.
This was Jackson’s second 100-yard rushing game of the season and his first since the Week 2 win over the Kansas City Chiefs. On Sunday, Jackson ran early and often against the Vikings, gaining 99 yards in the first three quarters.
It wasn’t a day when Jackson just dominated with his legs. He also threw three touchdowns to pull the Ravens into a 24-24 tie with the Vikings midway through the fourth quarter.
Jackson also moved past John Elway and Donovan McNabb for No. 8 on the all-time rushing list for quarterbacks.
