In SummaryThe Baltimore Ravens quarterback continues to ascend the NFL history ranks at the position, becoming the youngest to reach 35 wins.
In 2019, Lamar Jackson earned 50 first-place votes to become the second unanimous MVP in NFL history. He was 22 years old.
In 2021, Jackson is rewriting the record books again before the age of 25.
Jackson, who turns 25 in January, earned his 35th career win as a starting quarterback of the Baltimore Ravens after a dominating 34-6 victories over the Los Angeles Chargers.
The victory led the Ravens’ QB to surpass Dan Marino (34) for the most wins by a quarterback prior to his 25 birthday in NFL history. No quarterback in league history below the age of 25 has posted more than 30 wins in the last 20 years.
Jackson is 35-8 as a starting quarterback in the NFL, winning 10 of his last 11 starts. On the season, Jackson has thrown for 1,686 yards (8th) and has 11 total touchdowns. He has also rushed for 392 yards. During his MVP season, he set an NFL record for the most rushing yards by a quarterback with 1,206. He also became the first QB with back-to-back 1,000 rushing seasons (1,005 in 2020).
Jackson, who reached the milestone by passing Hall of Fame QB Marino, didn’t know what to make of the record.
“That’s pretty cool, I guess,” Jackson said. “I don’t know to say after that. It’s cool. Got to keep going.”
The former Heisman Trophy winner will have his No. 8 jersey retired at the University of Louisville.
“We are on a roll for something else,” said Jackson after he was asked about the record. “If we break records, it happens. But we want something else.”
