QB Jackson blisters Bengals with 117 rush yards

In his first NFL start, Lamar Jackson set a Ravens quarterback single-game record with 117 yards rushing in a 24-21 victory over the Bengals that essentially saved Baltimore's season.


Jackson carries 27 times, lifts Ravens past Bengals 24-21

Rookie quarterback Lamar Jackson juked and sprinted for 117 yards in his first NFL start, Gus Edwards ran for 115 and the Baltimore Ravens ground out a 24-21 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday to end a three-game losing streak.

In his first NFL start, Lamar Jackson provided a jolt of electricity to a struggling offense and delivered a much-needed 24-21 win over the Bengals. Jackson ran for 117 yards and threw for 150 in replacing the injured Joe Flacco. Three days removed from going to the hospital because of an illness, Jackson became the first NFL quarterback since 2016 to rush for 100 yards in a game. The last to do so was Colin Kaepernick (113 yards).

In his first NFL start, Lamar Jackson has shown his speed to get to the edges, elusiveness in the pocket and the ability to hit targets with quick-hitting passes over the middle. Jackson has accounted for 69.3 percent of Ravens offense, producing 64 yards rushing and 76 yards passing. Ravens lead at halftime, 13-7.
