Ravens’ Lamar Jackson back to running for touchdowns


When the Baltimore Ravens needed to answer, quarterback Lamar Jackson did so with his legs.

After the Philadelphia Eagles reached the end zone for the first time Sunday, Jackson delivered a 37-yard touchdown run in the third quarter.

Jackson burst up the middle of the Eagles without being touched because three offensive linemen (Bradley Bozeman, Tyre Phillips and Orlando Brown Jr.) walled off defenders to his right and left tackle Ronnie Stanley pulled for the key block to his right.

This was Jackson’s second rushing touchdown of at least 35 yards this season (he had a 50-yarder in Washington). The last quarterback to have multiple rushing touchdowns of at least 35 yards in a season was Vince Young in 2006.

Jackson’s long touchdown run came a week after he recorded his fewest carries (two) and rushing yards (three) in a game.
