Ravens’ Lamar Jackson becomes first QB in NFL history to run for 1,000 yards in multiple seasons

With a 7-yard run in the third quarter of Sunday’s 38-3 win over the Cincinnati Bengals, Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson became the first quarterback in NFL history to run for 1,000 yards in multiple seasons.

Jackson entered Week 17 needing 92 yards to achieve the feat and had 46 at halftime.

“For him to do that, it just shows how spectacular he is,” wide receiver Marquise “Hollywood” Brown said after the game. “He can do it in all phases of the game and I’m super proud of him.”

In 2019, Jackson joined Michael Vick as the only signal-callers in league history to rush for 1,000 yards in a season. Jackson ran for 1,206 yards, an NFL record for a quarterback, en route to earning unanimous league Most Valuable Players honors. He finished the 2020 season with a team-high 1,005 rushing yards, along with seven touchdowns.

“Our offensive line did a great job and our running backs helped me out a lot, and receivers blocking downfield, tight ends doing their job,” Jackson said. “It’s a team record, not just me out here. So, hats off to everyone on the offense.”
