It appears the first half of our tweet on Sunday has come true. Quarterback Lamar Jackson has won the AFC Offensive Player of the Week!

Quick note: If you want the second half to come true, please go vote for Marquise Brown!

I don’t believe anybody is surprised Jackson won the award, as he is now the youngest quarterback in NFL history to produce a perfect passer rating (158.3).

Lamar Jackson’s stat line:

17/20 | 85% completion | 324 yards | 5 PTD | 0 INT | 1 Sack

He was arguably the best player in the NFL this week, topping Patrick Mahomes dominance against a solid Jacksonville Jaguars defense.

It’s certainly been a fun weekend that rolled all the way into Wednesday now but it’s time to let Week 1 go. I’m confident Ravens head coach John Harbaugh has already forgot about this game as he gets the team focused on playing against former Ravens’ legend Terrell Suggs and the Arizona Cardinals for the 2019 home opener.
