Take the under on Lamar Jackson’s interception total in 2020

NFL: Pro Bowl-NFC at AFC Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

So how did you guys spend your Friday? Get some work done? Go for a walk? Nice. I watched all 12 interceptions of Lamar Jackson’s career.

I’m not quite sure what prompted this, but I’ve been meaning to start breaking down film a bit more, and figured an exercise like this would be a good way to do so. We know so much about what makes Lamar so great, so why not have a look at some the negative plays over the course of his career and see what conclusion we arrive at?

While that’s certainly part of went on, I also came to another realization: Jackson is an even better decision-maker than I initially thought. Trust me (Truss me? Truzz me?), I’ve been pretty bullish on the guy from day one, and only 12 interceptions over the course of a season and a half of football is nothing to shake a stick at.

But walking away from an in-depth look at his turnovers through the air convinced me that he’s only really made a few inexcusable decisions passing the ball over that course of time. I broke all of this down on the below Twitter thread:

I really hope you guys enjoyed this one, and maybe learned something. What do you think about Lamar’s interceptions so far, and how he projects in that category for 2020?

I’m personally taking the under, if only by a slight bit. Luck of the bounce, his decision making as shown above, and missing gametime either due to injury or having the game in hand would be my reasoning.

What’s yours? Let us know in the comments down below.
