Record night in Baltimore

NFL: New York Jets at Baltimore Ravens Evan Habeeb-USA TODAY Sports

The record-breaking night for the Ravens won’t stop as Lamar Jackson also broke another record this evening; a record held by the great Peyton Manning and tied by Jameis Winston.

Jackson has broken the single season record for most touchdown passes by a quarterback age 22-or-younger.

EDITOR NOTE: I checked into Peyton Manning’s stats on pro-football-reference and they show Manning with 26 passing touchdowns in his rookie and sophomore season. Winston does, however, have 28 passing touchdowns during his sophomore season before he turned 23. I’m assuming I missed something because ESPNStatsInfo are thorough with their work.

This is the third record to fall tonight, as Mark Andrews also set a franchise record for most touchdown receptions by a tight end in a single season (8), surpassing Todd Heap and Dennis Pitta.

With two games remaining this season, it’s a wonder what else these Ravens will accomplish in terms of records.
