Lamar Jackson turns 23 today. Here’s how the Ravens QB’s age-22 season ranks among the NFL’s best ever.

The Ravens' grounds crew paints a Ravens' logo outside City Hall as the Baltimore Ravens football team prepares for a playoff game against the Tennessee Titans.

As a 19-year-old sophomore at Louisville, Lamar Jackson captivated the college football world and made history as the youngest player to win the Heisman Trophy. Four years later, as a second-year quarterback in the NFL, Jackson is expected to achieve a similar feat as the youngest player to be named NFL Most Valuable Player.

In two seasons, Jackson has led the Ravens to two AFC North titles and set a laundry list’s worth of individual and team records. The top-seeded Ravens entered the playoffs as the favorites to win Super Bowl LIV.
