Ravens’ Lamar Jackson, Mark Ingram II become seventh pair to rush for 1,000 yards in same season

Ravens running back Mark Ingram II passed 1,000 rushing yards for the season in the second quarter of Sunday’s game against the Cleveland Browns.

Ingram and quarterback Lamar Jackson become the seventh pair of teammates to rush for 1,000 yards each in a single season, and the first since Carolina Panthers running backs Jonathan Stewart and DeAngelo Williams did it in 2009.

Jackon passed the 1,000-yard mark two weeks ago against the Buffalo Bills. In last week’s win over the New York Jets, Jackson broke Michael Vick’s single-season rushing record for a quarterback.

It’s the third time Ingram, who spent his first eight seasons with the New Orleans Saints, has reached the 1,000-yard milestone in his nine-year career. On the Ravens’ first play from scrimmage, Ingram broke off a 27-yard run.

Ingram, who turned 30 on Saturday, entered Week 16 with 14 total touchdowns, fifth in the NFL. He joins Jamal Lewis and Ray Rice as the only backs in franchise history to rush for 1,000 yards and 10 touchdowns in a single season.
