Lamar Jackson bet on himself, turning down a five-year extension worth over $250 million with $133 million guaranteed. He now is playing on his fifth-year option in the final year of his contract.
Jackson is proving his worth by the week.
A week after passing for 213 yards and three touchdowns, Jackson has three touchdown passes to go with 118 rushing yards and a touchdown against the Dolphins.
After the Dolphins cut the Ravens’ lead to 28-14, Jackson ran 79 yards, untouched to the end zone. It was the longest touchdown run of his career and gave him his 11th career 100-yard rushing game.
Miami’s second half touchdown came on a 14-yard pass from Tua Tagovailoa to Mike Gesicki with 7:52 remaining in the third quarter. The Dolphins had a chance to cut the deficit to a one-score game but punted after getting only one first down in six plays.
