Lamar Jackson represented 346 absolute yards and three touchdowns to lead the Baltimore Ravens to a 36-35 success against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.
Jackson recorded his fourth career game of 200 or more yards passing and 100 or more yards rushing, the most in NFL history, and the Ravens (1-1) rushed for 251 yards and three touchdowns. Jackson entered Sunday’s down 0-3 against the Chiefs in his NFL career.
“It feels good to get the monkey off our back,” Jackson said.
The Chiefs were moving into position to start to lead the pack in the last 3 1/2 minutes, however Clyde Edwards-Helaire fumbled on second-and-3 with 1:25 left and new kid on the block Odafe Oweh recuperated. Jackson changed over a key fourth-and-1 with 1:05 passed on to hold the Chiefs back from getting the ball back.
Ravens mentor John Harbaugh said there was never any uncertainty that he needed Jackson to let it all out on fourth-and-1. Harbaugh was seen inquiring as to whether he needed to take the plunge from the sidelines.
“Maybe I wanted to be sure myself,” Harbaugh said. “I knew he was going to say yes. But we were going for it at that point.”
Patrick Mahomes had 343 yards passing and three touchdowns for the Chiefs (1-1).
