Mark Andrews breaks franchise record for most touchdown receptions by a tight end

New, comment

Record night for the Ravens

NFL: San Francisco 49ers at Baltimore Ravens Evan Habeeb-USA TODAY Sports

Earlier tonight, the MVP front-runner Lamar Jackson broke the NFL record for most rushing yards by a quarterback in a single season. But he isn’t the only one breaking records tonight as TE Mark Andrews just eclipsed Todd Heap and Dennis Pitta for single season touchdown receptions by a tight end.

He originally scored the touchdown but after a long delay, the Ravens received an illegal formation penalty which took it away. Thankfully, Jackson found him a couple encroachment penalties later to end the drive.

It’s been quite a trip watching offensive record after record fall this season as Jackson and company continue to rack up yards and touchdowns alike.

Now, Jackson is only four passing touchdowns from breaking the franchise record for most in a single season (V. Testaverde [33]). But at this rate, Lamar Jackson just may break the record before the end of this game against the New York Jets. Well, that’s if he isn’t pulled in the third or fourth quarter like he has been for all season.
