Running out of superlatives to describe how good this kid is.....17/24 222 yards 4 TD passes. 9 carries 86 yards. MVP!

Watched most of the game yesterday and I have to agree.  Really impressive.  He's not just a running QB.  Total package.

Well done. Was getting annoyed seeing Vince Young's name.

Going to any games this year? Iím headed to the San Fran game next weekend. Been to plenty of games and never seen them lose at home. Looking forward to this one, havenít been since the Thursday night game against the Browns after Trump got elected.

I'm likely going to the Steelers game which is the last one on the schedule in Baltimore. Hopefully, the Ravens have at least a #2 seed locked up with nothing to play for.(except for the #1 seed) Going to a game at M&T is a great experience. I loved it when I was younger with season tickets. The only complaint I ever had was the traffic leaving the city. A lot of times, I had to leave by the end of the 3rd quarter to guarantee no traffic but that compromised the amount of money spent on the tickets. Have a great time and Go Ravens!

I usually just crash at the Holiday Inn on Russel St and walk to the game and leave Monday.

I think the Ravens should use the "load management" tactic used in the NBA and rest Lamar Jackson this week.

He took a lot of hits yesterday.  They better figure out how to keep him healthy throughout the playoffs or they will be an early out.

I don't think he's going to face another defense like the Niners for the rest of the regular season.

It's a week to week league. Buffalo Bills will be tough on the road. And never count out the Steelers. They could wind up winning 10 games and sneaking in and making noise. Great front seven on defense.

Lamar did take some hits running inside. I would prefer not see these designed inside runs by Lamar, moving forward. Too risky.

Definitely a risk to have so many designed running plays, but it didn't look like he took a lot of direct hits.  He's a freak.

Tonight's line:  15 for 23 for 212 yards, 5 TDs, 0 INTS, 8 carries for 86 yards.  Ten game winning streak.  Yeah, he's the NFL MVP.

Jackson is smart.  He runs to the sideline to avoid hits.

Not smart to spend that much money when he's on his first contract and will probably never see a big 2nd contract because of his QB style running all the time.  Should have taken them out to dinner to thank them.  He will be broke in 10 years.

He's guaranteed like 12.5M.

25k on Rolexes for his teammates isn't going to mean anything.

80% of NFL players are bankrupt within 2 years of retirement.  If he spends money like this on his lineman imagine what he spends on himself, hommies, baby mommas and kids.  Don't forget taxes.

I doubt the 80% are based on spending, and moreso of lack of employment after, and not getting $ anywhere close to what Jackson got.

Investing in your linemen is smart business anyway, and could lead to even bigger $.

It's a common practice for skill position players to reward their O-linemen.  I don't think this says anything about his fiscal responsibility.  If he's banging out kids with multiple women, hanging out at clubs all night, and spending his money on personal bling, then you'll have a point.

Lack of employment after????  A person making millions should never have to work again!
