Patriots’ Tom Brady challenges Ravens’ Lamar Jackson on Twitter to a race: ‘Who’s buying the PPV?’

Lamar Jackson is fast.

The Ravens quarterback broke the single-season rushing record for a quarterback in the first quarter of Thursday night’s game against the New York Jets, a team that lost its quarterback for an extended period of time this season to mononucleosis.

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is not very fast.

Brady, 42, seemed to recognize this fact on Twitter, where he posted that he and Jackson should race.

Granted, he’s trying to handicap Jackson a bit with the suggestion that the Raven wear rollerblades.

But, despite Brady’s famous diet of avoiding bread and jelly, we’re pretty sure most people would still bet on Jackson over the 42-year-old.

When told about Brady’s request after the Ravens’ 42-21 win Thursday night over the New York Jets, a bewildered Jackson pondered the question before responding: “He’s probably going to win that race. Rollerblades on grass? Aw, man, I’m going to see what I can do. Tom’s still got a little bit in him. I’ve seen him.”
