Lamar Jackson has set a new NFL record.

That’s right, Jackson, the player ‘analysts’ scouted as a running back or wide receiver has set one of the highest marks in NFL history twice in his sophomore season.

He set his first perfect QB rating against the Miami Dolphins in a dominant fashion. Jackson went 17/20 passing for 324 yards and five touchdowns.

Against the Bengals, Jackson went 15/17 passing for 223 yards and three touchdowns. He also added 65 rushing yards and a rushing touchdown. While that’s not included in the passing stats, it’s still fun to bring up and talk about.

This means Jackson has set the new record for two perfect QB ratings in a season, edging out Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger by a single pass. It’s always sweet to see your favorite teams’ quarterback set an NFL record; it’s even better when they do so by breaking the record set by their rivals’ quarterback.
