Lamar Jackson notches record fourth double-triple of season

Getty Images

Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson passed for 105 yards and ran for 101 yards in today’s win over the 49ers, putting him in a unique place in NFL history.

It was the fourth time this season that Jackson notched a double-triple — and the first time ever that a player had four double-triples in one season. Jackson previously topped 100 yards both rushing and passing in Week Two against the Cardinals, Week Six against the Bengals and Week Seven against the Seahawks.

A double-triple, as you’ve previously read at PFT, comes when a player has triple-digit yards in two different statistical categories. A player can record a double-triple by having 100 or more yards both passing and rushing, or rushing and receiving, or returning both punts and kickoffs, or any other way that yardage is counted.

The double-triple is surprisingly rare, and Jackson (who did it once as a rookie last season) already has five of them in his career. That’s the second-most in NFL history, behind only Michael Vick, who holds the record with eight. Four other players have four career double-triples: Russell Wilson, Walter Payton, Dante Hall and Gary Ballman.

Jackson seems like a sure bet to break Vick’s all-time record. There’s never been a combined rushing-passing threat like Jackson in NFL history.

  1. There is no doubt after this game – Lame is a running back who interrupts his runs to throws. End the Lame Loophole – establish a six run max for a person designated as a QB – after that the team will have to choose to accept his disqualification or he no longer receives ANY protection afforded a QB when passing. This fraud and cheating needs to end. The defense is already at a significant disadvantage with the rules protecting QB’s and defenseless receivers. It is time to punish teams who decide to start a running back as their QB and then to interraupt his carrying the ball with a pass every now and then!

  2. Lame on his career averages 10 rushes per game coming into this one; he ran 16 times today and only completed 14 passes! Absolutely no question that Lame is a running back and now should be stripped of any passing protections afforded a QB – level the playing field for defenses. Close the Lame Loophole.

  3. Can for once we stop with the blabbering about Lamar as a QB? He’s a running back. and an outstanding one at that. He cant make throws more than 7 yards downfield unless his receivers are wide open. He threw for 100 yards today as a “quarterback.”
    The Ravens had 1 TD scoring drive today. One. Jimmy G gifted the other TD with his fumble.
    These are facts. Lamar played poorly as a QB today. He played great as a running back. Why can’t we acknowledge this? This was nothing close to a dominant, MVP performance.

    You need to seek help. No matter how many times you say it, he’s still a QB and coming in to this week was tied for the number of PASSING TDs

  5. Lamar is awesome within this ball control smashmouth style. If he had to actually play QB the majority of the time…..he would be Mitchell Tribiscuit. The refs are treating him like Tom Brady in that, he can’t be hit……yet he is a wildcat style QB:? Does this not scream a one year push to promote him as the MVP?

  6. A game in the driving rain are one commenter goes out of their way to fill PFT with hate toward toward Jackson for not attempting 40 passes!
    It’s about the wins, style points are good if you lose!

    would you like cheese with your wine?

  8. He’s NOT just a running QB, he does it all.

    My concern is the way in which he runs, he’s bound to get injured, the question is when and not if.

  9. QB stats so far this season:
    – Garoppolo: 232 of 337 for 2731 @68.8 completion
    – Lamar: 200 of 299 for 2427 @67% completion

    The more you argue he’s “not a QB” the more you expose your idiocy.

  10. “There’s never been a combined rushing-passing threat like Jackson in NFL history.”

    105 yards rushing.

    101 yards passing.

    ….

    Lamar Jackson’s passing ability doesn’t scare anybody.

    If you stop the Run, you stop the Ravens.

    It’s the stopping the run part that is hard.

  11. I don’t know why it is so hard for Ravens fans to admit Lamar is a running QB. He’s actually a runner who occasionally throws. Yes, he has a lot of passing TDs. I’ve watched all his games. The majority are on throws in the 6-8 yd range to wide open receivers on slant or drag routes. These are easy throws to make. Every QB in the NFL would make them.
    What almost every other QB in the league can’t do is run like Lamar, including his awesome ability to hold the ball in Ingram’s stomach until the last millisecond, fooling DEs. They have designed a great offense to exploit his unique skills as a running back and the O line is superb.
    He is not a throwing QB. Don’t fool yourself. He was terrible today throwing and missed wide open receivers— on 5-7 yard routes, not like he was heaving up 20 yard bombs. He threw for 100 yards and directed one TD scoring drive (the other was gifted by Jimmy G). Not an MVP performance by any stretch, but credit to the Ravens for winning.
    The key question is this: can anyone get ahead of the Ravens? Their style of offense is not conducive to big comebacks because Lamar will have to throw and he just doesn’t do that very well.

  12. I totally agree with the positive assessments of Lamar. When I watched him in college, I thought he need a Kevlar uniform to save him in the NFL. Sooner or later it will catch up with him, but until then look out.

    10-2 and your team lost. Your opinions of Lamar are your own. We don’t care what you think.

  14. The NFL has seen several guys like Jackson. The only difference is the ravens are the first modern NFL team to roll the dice with their QB’s health by calling so many designed QB run plays.

  15. Lamar is super exciting to watch. He’s not a great QB though. I’m sorry. He’s the best runner in the NFL but is not nearly the best passer. I’d say his skill set is split 75% running 25% passing. That said who cares how he does it if he gets the W?

    If you want the best runner, thrower combo, give me Russell Wilson everyday. Add in his smarts and winner mentality and you’ve got the MVP.

  16. I am laughing at all the Lamar haters. I am not a Ravens fan but the kid is must see tv and the NFL made another dumb mistake by not flexing this game to prime time. This old school meets new school running game with hard hitting defenses in the rain by these two teams was a thing of beauty and wasn’t nationally televised. Very entertaining. But back to Lamar. Yeah he only threw for 105 but he ran for 101 against the #2 ranked defense! When are some of you clowns going to accept the inevitable? lol.

  17. At this point, the league will do everything to protect Lamar even if it means changing the rules they way they did after Brady’s ACL tear or Rogers’ collarbone break. So fans of other teams may as well get used to it because he is not going anywhere. The challenge will be up to defense coordinators to figure out how to stop the Ravens high school offense. My best bet will be Belichick in the playoffs will give the blueprint on how to deal with the Ravens.

  18. Y’all can go back and forth on what names to call Lamar all day… but someone please tell me how you’re allowed to jump on a guys back when the ball is going right to him, and it’s not interference? Especially with the much softer call they made on Marlon Humpherey the previous drive. Just ridiculous.

    Also… how sad is it that the Steelers haven’t had their starting QB all season and have somehow lucked-into a potential playoff spot? That’s also just ridiculous.

    Why is Rivers still getting snaps? He’s horrible. Matt Ryan, Matthew Stafford, Carson Wentz, Philip Rivers… all the same person.

  19. Ravens crowd whining for a flag after every single offensive play. Apparently the flagfests of recent years are A-OK with these fans.

    I’ll take that bet. Too bad BB couldn’t stop the high school offense the first time.

  21. Andy Dalton absolutely killed it today and put up far better QB numbers while breaking yet more records. Think we can get an Article about him?

    I think we have played out all the hype on Captain Mediocre Lamar. 105 yards passing, again in the modern NFL that says it all.

    _____________________________

    He went against the NFLs number 1 defense in the pouring rain. He leads the NFL in passing TDs. Garoppolo had just as many missed throws because it was pouring.

  23. I wouldn’t compare him to Jimmy G if I was a Lamar Advocate …Jimmy G isn’t great…he is servicable but gets happy feet and has terrible accuracy when the pressure is on.

  24. Didnt Jimmy G throw for 165? So all the 49ers fans hating on lamar – your pocket passer getting 65 more yards and losing makes him better? I mean I know you must be half brain dead to be commenting on these posts anyways, but this amount of stupidity is shocking and I’m worried you all are being deprived oxygen to the brain. Take the plastic bag off your head!

  25. Great game! Lamar is a legit threat, but like other fans of the league who have witnessed phenom prior to this, his days are numbered. Again, it was a great game and it took a several things going their way for the Ravens to win. Lamar won’t get that same type of “QB” protection by the stripes forever. Enjoy while you can, Ravens fan.

  26. Great game. That loss is on Kyle though. Questionable game management. Defense played well enough to win. Offense needed to step it up. You had to know Lamar was good for at least 21pts. Tough one to swallow. Lamar is MVP. Can’t be stopped

  27. For the record I don’t think Jimmy G is good enough to win a Super Bowl. He may never be consistent enough and protect the ball the way you need to to make it all the way through the playoffs. He has upside but the concerning issue for him is happy feet and lack of confidence in his reads and decisions. You could see it today. Yes the weather was bad and he still threw for many more yards than Lamar and with pretty strong completion rate, but he needed to do more to win the game. That 4th and 1 play call was silly. Why throw when you’ve been running all over the Ravens all day.
    I don’t bother comparing Lamar and Jimmy. Two entirely different QBs and systems. Same 10-2 records.

  28. I was at the game today. It was freezing cold and everyone was drenched. I couldn’t feel my fingers at all so I’m not surprised that both quarterbacks struggled passing.

  29. Jackson did get hit with the ugly stick, no one can debate that. Lol
    All the praise he’s getting now is ridiculous however. I just don’t find him fun to watch, frustrating to watch is what I’d say. The NFL has and will always be monkey see, monkey do. All Jackson’s current success means is that more NFL teams will be going after running QBs from college and systematically start dumbing down all your offenses to make it simple. Most NFL defenses are geared to stop the pass and can’t handle pounding running games like Baltimore’s.

  30. Patriot fans talking about Belichick having the blueprint to stop Lamar. That’s funny. Check his stats, his worst game this year was against the Steelers, and if the Steelers don’t fumble in overtime, the Ravens are 9-3 and Pittsburgh is 8-4. The blueprint is out there, somebody just needs to execute it. Until then, Ravens are gonna remain unstoppable.

    Nice to see Ome/California Newton has a new handle and team. You, sir, are full of hogwash. Additionally, I stopped reading your post after your six yard run rule for Qbs.

    Go watch professional curling. Also, I’m not a Ravens fan.

  32. Hahaha, I’m a Ravens hater but you guys in this thread are priceless trolls. Lamar is the best thing to happen to the NFL since Jerruh drove out Jimmy Johnson and made the Cowboys irrelevant. The guy is just fun to watch

  33. .
    i’ll trade daniel jones for him… DJ is just a “rookie” so ignore how bad he is…
    I mean Eli had more INT’s last year… u know 11 INTs 3rd least INT’s in his NFL career

  34. Ita hilarious to see some 49er fans trashing Lamar’s passing on a miserable weather day when their own “passing’ QB got all of 165 yards passing.

    Not to mention Pat’s fans sniffing at a supposed HS offense, which their genius defensive HC couldn’t stop. And I don’t want to hear about how he stopped Lamar over the final 3 quarters when the Ravens outscored the Pats in those quarters, as well as the first quarter.

    Some people are just so insecure they have no life beyond whether their teamm wins.

  35. If Lamar wins the MVP, then good for him – he had an incredible season. But to say anything more than that is pure conjecture. Only time will tell.

  36. For all the Lamar-haters who keep insisting “he’s no QB!!”, please consider the following:

    Russell Wilson Lamar Jackson
    TDs 24 24
    INTs 3 5
    Comp % 67.3 66.9
    Yds/Att 8.3 8.1
    Yds/game 267.0 220.6
    Rating: 112.1 111.4
    QBR: 74.1 81.6

    Sorry if your teams can’t stop this kid, but that’s no reason to be delusional.

  37. Of course he is a quarterback and an effective one at that. Didn’t Rodgers just get thrashed by the niners? Lamar won. Not sure when being able to run became a negative. It wasn’t with Steve young. Not with wentz or Allen. No rule stating that you have fo throw for 300 yards,

  38. The best runner/ throwers were Young, and Cunningham…the smartest runner/throwers were Tarkenton and Wilson.

    Jackson isn’t as good a runner as Vick, but a slightly better thrower.

  39. You know you’ve made it when every article about you brings out every troll and hater. I love that so many people take the time to comment on every Lamar article. It shows how good he really is.
