Ravens QB Jackson tops Vick for passing, rushing milestone

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson became the fastest player to notch 5,000 career passing yards and 2,000 career rushing yards on Sunday.

Jackson, 23, achieved the feat in his 35th career game, easily surpassing previous record holder Michael Vick, who reached the milestone in 39 games. Jackson had a career-high 50-yard rushing touchdown and threw for two TDs in Sunday’s 31-17 win against the Washington Football Team.

The Ravens drafted Jackson in the first round (No. 32 overall) out of Louisville in 2018. Last season he became the youngest quarterback ever to win the league MVP award.

In an interview with Yahoo Sports last year, Vick said he marveled at Jackson’s athleticism.

“Every time I get this question, I probably give a different answer,” Vick said. “But (here’s) the truth behind it — I never thought I’d see another guy come into the NFL that looks like me. I really didn’t. Like, where is he gonna come from? What is he gonna look like? How can he do what I did? Can it be done? (But) when I watch Lamar, I’m in shock. Then I think about the conversations I had with Lamar in college, coming into the NFL, and I pretty much told him what he needed to do to look like me (in the NFL) when I seen him look like me in college. I shouldn’t be surprised.”
