NFLA 2019 October Player of the Month Presented by Invicta Watches: Lamar Jackson

Lamar Jackson OCT 2019

If you haven’t jumped on the Lamar Jackson bandwagon, it’s too late. That train has already left the station. After the first two months of the season, Jackson has been thrust into the NFL MVP conversation for good reason. During October, Jackson became the first player in the Super Bowl era to record over 200 passing yards and 150 rushing yards in a single regular-season game.Jackson finished the contest with 236 passing yards and 152 rushing yards against the winless Bengals. The only other player to reach those marks was former San Francisco 49ers’ quarterback Colin Kaepernick in the 2012-13 postseason, when he tallied 263 passing yards and 181 rushing yards against the Green Bay Packers.  Jackson had more rushing yards than six teams entering the final week of October before his prime time match up with the New England Patriots to start the team’s November push.  The Ravens had a bye during October, yet Jackson still found a way to standout in his 3 performances.  He posted a stat line of 540 passing yards and one touchdown. On the ground in those games, Jackson has recorded an absurd 268 yards and two touchdowns in just three October games.  The Ravens, behind Jackson’s otherworldly season, have been rolling right along at 6-2 atop the AFC North.
