Lamar Jackson takes another AFC offensive player of the week

Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson took a break from taking AFC offensive player of the week honors in Week 11, but he took in back in Week 12.

Jackson took the prize two straight weeks before Bills quarterback Josh Allen got the nod last week. Jackson’s performance on Monday night against the Rams was enough to put it back in his possession.

Jackson threw as many incompletions as touchdowns while going 15-of-20 for 169 yards and five touchdowns in the 45-6 rout of Los Angeles. He added 95 rushing yards on eight carries in what seems to be a neverending run of remarkable performances.

That run has made Jackson the MVP frontrunner heading into the final month of the regular season and he’ll try to keep it going in a marquee matchup with the 49ers this weekend.

    As he should however he’ll collapse in the postseason again, you all know it’s coming.

    Collapse to who? It’s fans like who confuse me. You complain about the same ole teams making it to the Super Bowl yet when a new contender emerges all of a sudden you hope for a collapse. rooting against Lamar for the sake of rooting against him Is senseless. The guy is amazing and along with Mahomes is making it exciting to watch football again.

    When you throw 5 TDs with 169 yards passing. It’s called EFFICIENCY.

  3. Ravens are scary but I wish Lamar could have thrown 4 less tds last week so darnold could have gotten this lol

  4. Does anyone know how the NFL decides who are the players of the week? Is it a vote by committee, or is it just one person writing the article making the decisions? Not knowing the process or the process not being public makes these awards suspect at best.

  5. Watching Jackson & Company has made Pro Football FUN to watch once again. I use to watch Dandy Don screw up so much it was fun to watch, he was a class act while losing Jackson is a class act while winning.

    I guess you were one of the 3 people on the planet that were questioning how Ed Reed got voted into the HOF too.

    Better than collapsing in the pre-season like your Fins have done over the last few decades…

  8. No one seems to be talking about the fact that the Ravens will have $53M in cap space after this season to get even better. And their owner always spends to the cap limit. Expect a big time WR and DE to be joining the team this offseason.

  9. I knew that some actual mental deficient would bring up his passing yard total while ignoring the fact that he led his team to a TD on every drive he was in the game. And say what you will about the Rams’ offense but their defense is still a top 10-ish unit. Scoring TDs on the first 6 possessions has only been done six other instances in NFL History, certainly deserving of OPOW.

    It’s Lamar’s fault that he gets set up with good field position?

    Maybe the NFL your thinking about is the old NFL and THIS is the new, modern NFL. The Jackson, Mahomes, Watson, Wilson, Murray NFL.

  12. He should have won Week 11 too — totally outplayed Josh Allen in Week 11. You didn’t see Josh Allen getting pulled in the 4th quarter in Week 11 for his backup because he stomped the opponent. And Lamar beat a better opponent too.

    ===============================

    They have to pay a few players sooner or later. Lamar Jackson, Marlon Humpherey and/or Marcus Peters, Matthew Judon. That cap space disappears quickly. Jackson’s agent would be doing him a disservice if he didn’t suggest holding out after this season until a new contract is agreed upon. He’s clearly proven he’s capable of being a franchise QB… and because it’s so different a style than what most QBs run… JAckson has an advantage in negotiations since they can’t easily go out and replace him with someone else that has a similar skill-set. And also… if they want to keep the genius that has orchestrated this offense and made it work… they will have to pay Greg Roman to STAY. Coach’s salaries don’t count against the salary cap… but it is money the owner has to spend.

    But with that said, now that the Ravens got rid of Flacco… it will be MUCH easier to get free agents interested in coming to Baltimore. The team looks like they are having fun, so free agents are much more inclined to want to be a part of that. And perhaps some players are willing to “take less” to go to a winning team.

    The only thing I would say is the team rushing record was set by the 1978 Patriots with 3,165 yards. That is likely to fall this year with the Ravens, but the new Modern NFL isn’t that different from the old NFL. Most things have been tried before. The athletes are just getting better every year.

    The challenge with rushing offenses like that is they generally can’t be sustained from season to season, but they certainly can win in any given year.

    169 passing yards and 5 passing TDs (funny how you left that out) in just over THREE QUARTERS. He sat out almost the entire 4th. If he were to continue playing people like you would be gripping about him padding his stats.

  16. I don’t know how you defend him really – he’s too fast for contain, and who are you gonna spy him with, when he’s faster than most of your db’s, and has open field moves as good as any WR’s?

    The only possible achilles heel, and I say this knowing it’s the deservedly mocked voice of all the doubters – – is that he did take some heavy shots in that Rams game. He needs to get just a little smarter about protecting himself, maybe leave 10% of some yards out on the field, and he’ll be very good for a long time.

    It also shouldn’t totally be lost in the Lamar hype – Ingram is really good. I think I let Kamara’s flash overshadow him some in N.O. – realizing more and more what a top-end RB he is too.

    Popcorn ready.

    When the wheels come off, it’s going to be great!

    the jealousy of Pat fans when a great player comes along that wears a different uniform is astonishing ….. and sad tbh.

    Point taken, but Lamar can’t be extended until after 2020 since he’s only in his second season right now. Humphrey is certainly someone the Ravens need to extend, and I sincerely hope Peters sticks around too. The one guy you haven’t mentioned who they absolutely must lock up is Ronnie Stanley.

    I could live with Judon leaving if they can pursue someone like Dante Fowler since the Rams have quickly put themselves in salary cap hell.

    You are responding to ONE fan. And a fairly questionable one at that. It’s both sad and intellectually lazy of you to say “Pat fans”.

  20. Lamar’s been playing off the charts, is great for the league, and from what I can see, is a good guy to boot. Next, he needs to prove he can excel in the playoffs. I’m rooting for him.
