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

He’s done it again, folks. With a statline of 212 passing yards on 15 completions (23 attempts) and five passing touchdowns, Jackson secured his fifth AFC Offensive Player of the Week award. This ties Tom Brady (2007) and Cam Newton (2015) for most Offensive Player of the Week awards in a single season in NFL history. Reminder, he also rushed for 86 yards on only eight carries as well.

This now ties former running back Ray Rice for the most offensive player of the week awards in Baltimore Ravens history. In regards to total AFC player of the week awards, regardless of position, this places Jackson in a four-way tie for second place in franchise history as he ties Rice, Ed Reed and Terrell Suggs. The only player in franchise history left to tie and surpass is linebacker Ray Lewis, who notched eight player of the week awards in his illustrious career. At his pace, Jackson can expect he hit that mark just over halfway through the 2020 season.

CLARIFICATION EDIT: Ray Lewis is actually second in Ravens history for most Player of the Week awards. Justin Tucker is first in franchise history with 11 awards. Lewis is second with eight and there is a four-way tie for third with five.
