SJ - October 13, 2021

Lamar Jackson has been incredible through the first five games of the season.  The numbers he's put up are insane.  So insane he has more total yards than 18 NFL teams.  That includes the Packers, who are in first place in the NFC North.

The Ravens quarterback has thrown for 1,519 yards and run for another 341 yards.  He's the first player to ever throw for 1,500 yards and rush for 300 yards in the first five games of the season or over any five game span.

From CBS Sports:

Jackson has 1,860 combined passing and rushing yards this season, which makes his start even more incredible. His 1,860 yards are more than 18 NFL teams, including the NFC North leading Green Bay Packers -- who have 1,738 total yards on the season (22nd in the NFL).

Jackson would rank 15th in the NFL in team total yards, with the Philadelphia Eagles slightly ahead of him with 1,863. Here are the 18 teams that currently trail Jackson in total yards:

Jackson is doing all of this and he's had COVID twice in the last few months.  Maybe that's the secret.  COVID has been looked at as something that hinders athletes, it's possible it's a sneaky PED.

I'd love to hear him credit COVID for his success this season.
