Lamar Jackson has more total yards than 18 NFL teams, including the NFC North-leading Packers

What Lamar Jackson has actually had the ability to achieve through 5 video games of the 2021 season is unequaled in NFL history. Jackson is the very first gamer to ever toss for 1,500 backyards and run for 300 backyards in the very first 5 video games, and the only gamer in NFL history to toss for 1,500 backyards and rush for 300 backyards in a five-game period.

Jackson has 1,860 combined death and hurrying backyards this season, that makes his start much more unbelievable. His 1,860 backyards are more than 18 NFL groups, consisting of the NFC North leading Green Bay Packers — who have 1,738 overall backyards on the season (22nd in the NFL). 

Jackson would rank 15th in the NFL in group overall backyards, with the Philadelphia Eagles a little ahead of him with 1,863. Here are the 18 groups that presently route Jackson in overall backyards:

  • San Francisco 49ers — 1,841
  • Indianapolis Colts — 1,817
  • Carolina Panthers — 1,817
  • Denver Broncos — 1,789
  • Seattle Seahawks — 1,755
  • Washington Football Team — 1,741
  • Jacksonville Jaguars — 1,740
  • Green Bay Packers — 1,738
  • Atlanta Falcons — 1,728
  • Detroit Lions — 1,695
  • Cincinnati Bengals — 1,669
  • New England Patriots — 1,599
  • Pittsburgh Steelers — 1,598
  • New Orleans Saints — 1,476
  • Houston Texans — 1,413
  • New York Jets — 1,335
  • Miami Dolphins — 1,309
  • Chicago Bears — 1,200

Jackson has actually been a one-man fear for opposing defenses, being mostly accountable for the Ravens’ 4-1 start. 

“He’s always growing. He’s always getting better. A game like this, he’s just so efficient,” Ravens tight end Mark Andrews stated after Monday’s win. “He just sees the game so well. He leads guys and puts them in the right spot [and] puts the ball in the right spot. Some of the throws he’s able to make today, it’s just like, he makes our job easy.” 

Jackson is on rate to toss for 5,164 backyards and rush for 1,159 backyards, numbers that would be extraordinary for a quarterback in league history. The argument on whether Jackson can toss the ball seems over. 

“Look at the last couple of games, he’s just calm, composed, and he’s a leader, man,” Andrews stated. “That’s what we all look to. There were mistakes. There were a couple mistakes that were made, but he just keeps on coming [and] keeps on going.”
