“Not bad for a running back.”

Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson answered his critics in a big way Sunday in a 59-10 victory over the Miami Dolphins.

Jackson completed 17 out of 20 passes, 324 yards, and five touchdowns. At just 22 years old, Jackson became the youngest player in NFL history with a perfect passing rating in a single game.

After all the critique debating whether or not Jackson could throw the ball or be an effective focus of an offense, Jackson proved his ability to be a true dual threat.

For his efforts, Jackson has been named AFC Offensive Player of the Week.

Although tJackson burned the Dolphins in the air, the Ravens still curshed them on the ground. 

Free agent signee Mark Ingram ran for 107 yards and two touchdowns in his Ravens debut. 

Running back Gud Edwards ran for 56 yards on a game-high 17 carries. 

Jackson has began ripping up many labels abut his game but there is one label he attached himself: AFC Offensive Player of the Week. 

Jackson and the Ravens will look to keep the momentum going as they get set to host the Arizona Cardinals Sunday.
