Jackson first QB to rush for consecutive 1,000-yard seasons
Lamar Jackson became the first quarterback in NFL history to rush for at least 1,000 yards in consecutive seasons while leading the Baltimore Ravens against the host Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday.
Jackson, 23, rushed for 97 yards on 11 carries Sunday to give him 1,005 yards for the season. The reigning NFL MVP also completed 10 of 18 passes for 113 yards with three touchdowns and an interception before being pulled late in the third quarter with his team holding a 31-3 lead.
The Ravens could clinch their third straight trip to the playoffs with a victory over the Bengals.
Jackson entered the game needing 92 rushing yards to reach 1,000.
Jackson rushed for an NFL quarterback-record 1,206 yards last year in his first full year as a starter. The mark eclipsed Michael Vick’s record of 1,039, which he set in 2006 — the only season in which he broke 1,000 yards.
