On Monday night, Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson had a career game, helping his team win against the Indianapolis Colts by a huge 31-25 comeback.
With just under 12 minutes remaining in the fourth quarter, the 24-year-old threw for a career-high 442 yards and four touchdowns as the Ravens rallied from a 25-9 deficit to the Colts.
In the fourth quarter to bring the Ravens level, he threw a pair of touchdowns to tight-end Mark Andrews.
Even though the Colts had their chance to win the game later, kicker Rodrigo Blankenship missed a goal attempt which was of 47-yard field, because the time expired. While sealing the memorable victory with a five-yard touchdown pass to Marquise Brown, Jackson led the Ravens down the field on the first possession of overtime.
On three counts, Jackson entered the record books, while he was on the way to score 22 unanswered points against a tiring Colts defence.
In the NFL, he became the first quarterback who completed 85% of his passes in a 400-yard game. He became the first player in NFL history to throw for 400 yards, four touchdowns, no interceptions, and 50 yards rushing in the same game. He also set an NFL record for the highest completion rate in a 40-pass game (86 percent with 37-of-43 attempts).
Ravens head coach John Harbaugh was pretty much impressed, which showed in his praise afterwards.
“It’s one of the greatest performances I’ve ever seen,” he told the media.
The star QB just said he was in the zone.
“I was just locked in,” Jackson said. “I was just calm, everything was moving slow. I was just taking it a play at a time.”
It was just another disappointing game for the Colts after Ravens won their fourth game continuously in a row.
Person who signed in the offseason from the Philadelphia Eagles, Quarterback Carson Wentz completed 25 of 35 passes for 402 yards and two touchdowns and did produce his best game yet in a Colts uniform.
