Lamar Jackson records eighth double-triple, tied with Michael Vick for most ever

Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson is now tied for first place in NFL history in the statistical category known as the double-triple.

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.

In today’s win over the Eagles, Jackson passed for 186 yards and ran for 108 yards. That qualifies as his eighth double-triple, with seven coming in the regular season and one in last year’s postseason.

The only other player in NFL history with eight double-triples was Michael Vick, who topped 100 yards rushing and 100 yards passing six times with the Falcons and twice with the Eagles.

Jackson is only 23 years old, so he likely has many more 100-yard rushing, 100-yard passing games ahead of him. He’ll re-write the record book on the double-triple.

  1. Passing and rushing is the least impressive of the double-triples. Rushing and receiving is probably the most impressive

  2. Doesn’t matter. Lamar Jackson won’t be judged this year by how he plays against bad teams like the Eagles and Washington. He’ll be judged fully based on how he does against good teams and then in the playoffs.

    A “double-triple” is fine (although kind of useless because 100 yards passing is a ridiculously low bar to cross and you can get there by playing poorly) but wins in January are an actual stat that matters.

  3. Congrats to Lamar. But as a Ravens fan I don’t feel confident yet. His throwing motion is awful. But I’m not a coach or a player and we’re 5-1 so I guess I should just shut up.

  4. He didn’t have a single triple against the Chiefs… That says more about him than any other made up stat.

    Maybe if he was a better passer the ravens wouldn’t have struggled vs my very bad eagles.

    I’m sorry I wasn’t aware Jackson played defense also. I mean 22 of the Eagles 28 points were scored in the 4th quarter and the Ravens did put up 30 points. The game was nowhere as close as the 30-28 final score indicated.

  6. Not very often I get impressed by a QB performance when he has less than 200 yards passing. This is not one of those times. In today’s league (and with Hollywood Brown) you have no excuse not to hit 300 in great weather.

    I’ll be impressed with a “double triple” when he has triple bills passing to go with the 100+ rushing.

  7. The real question is when does Pederson get sent down the road? A loss to Washington and a tie to the worst team of 2019, it’s clear now that the real reason the Eagles won that SB was Reich, the Eagles have been lost since he left!

    Just like Atlanta since Shanahan left.

  8. Lamar Jackson looks to be the best QB from the 2018 draft class and it’s not even close.

  9. Big deal. It’s easy to put up big numbers against terrible teams. He looked clueless against the Chiefs and their defense isn’t very good. He looked terrible against the Titans in the playoffs last year. Teams have the book on him. Cover everything short and he’ll take off running or throw an INT. He’s a terrible deep passer.

    How is that so? I’m not gonna sit here and say woulda shoulda coulda, but it was a close game at the end. Just because the ravens got up early doesn’t mean the game wasn’t close and the 4th qtr shouldn’t count. 2 pt conversion away from tying it with a couple mins left. And I’m being honest when I say most ravens fans won’t be beating their chest over a 2 pt victory vs the 1-4-1 eagles who were without their top 3 wide outs and didn’t finish the game with ertz or miles sanders. My team sucks . . .but apology accepted.

  11. What will it take for the NFL to stop pumping the Lamar hype train and finally place him in the appropriate bucket, which is that he is a below-average QB, phenomenal scrambler and runner, and leads one of the worst offenses in the NFL? By nearly every objective measure or statistical basis he is closer to the bottom of the league than the top of the league.
    Is the guy exciting? Yes. Can he break defenders’ ankles with his jukes? Yes. Is he a good guy and leader? Seems like it, even if his body language often goes poor when he misses easy plays.
    But the Ravens’ offense stinks. We know it, you know it. So stop with the Lamar hype. Focus on Mahomes and Wilson and some of the rising studs like Murray and Herbert. Running QBs do not last. We’ve had them for the past 30 years and they flash from time to time, but unfortunately if you can’t throw accurately, you can’t win on a sustained basis in the NFL.

  12. He’s too small. He runs too much. He doesn’t have the arm strength. He should be wide receiver. HAHAHAHAAA. ALL HE DOES IS WIN !

  13. Lets not really think too highly of the accomplishment. He was playing a bunch of folks who would never even be a backup on a team, but are in key starting positions. If anyone cant beat us this season they are terrible lol

  14. Seriously though, what is the point of a qb who can’t throw the ball, and that you know can never win a Superbowl with?

  15. I’m sorry but i watched this whole game and Lamar Jackson is a terrible qb. Hes just not good. He throws a terrible ball, hes unbelievably inaccurate, he looks like mike vick if Vick never lifted a weight in his life.

    Lamar Jackson will never win a superbowl as a qb. Unless, he learns to pass the ball.

  16. Lamar Jackson is literally better than every QB drafted before him, and it hurts. Inflated passing numbers are overrated. If your passing yards do not equate to victories, they don’t matter. Lets be honest here Joe Flacco was mediocre at best, and Trent Dilfer was a little better them him. Neither one of them would have had a chance without that superb ravens defense. Lamar Jackson goes undefeated with that defense, and super bowl to boot. that defense showed up for EVERY GAME, not just the gimmie’s. Lamar Jackson has a career passer rating of over 105, and has won over 90% of his games played. Just admit the REAL reason you don’t like Lamar Jackson, because it definitely has nothing to do with football.

  17. The sign of a good team is if they can win even when they aren’t playing their best. Lamar’s mechanics look off, his receivers aren’t stepping up very often and yesterday they almost killed themselves with stupid penalties. Every one of those things can be corrected with good coaching, which this team also has. The Ravens are clearly not clicking so far this year, on offense or to a lesser extent on defense, but they’re 5-1 in an extremely competitive division. Will be very interesting to see how they use the bye ahead of the Pittsburgh game to adjust.

    I’m curious if you were aware that last year Lamar Jackson led the NFL in passing touchdowns with 36, not to mention the 7 he had rushing. More passing TD’s than Russell, 10 more than Mahomes and more than Dak. And you believe the Ravens “have one of the worst offenses in the NFL”?? I guess you missed all of last season when the Ravens lead the NFL is practically every offensive category. Granted they haven’t been as dominant so far this year but to say some of those statements is ridiculous in terms of Lamar not being able to pass in this league and the Ravens having such a bad offense as you mention.
