Lamar Jackson will cherish breaking Michael Vick's single-season rushing record forever.
Fair enough, but at this point in the season there appears to be no better team than Baltimore, which owns the best record in the National Football League and needs only one win in its final two games to sew up the No. 1 seed in the AFC for the first time. Young or old, nobody's coming close to the kind of game Jackson has at his disposal these days. Tom still got a little bit in him. Jackson racked up 61 yards on the ground and scored two rushing touchdowns in that Ravens' 37-20 win. "When I was on the field, it wasn't hitting me", Jackson said.
What we're still learning, however, is just how many records the offense is going to set along the way to the most prolific season in team history.More news: LSU QB Joe Burrow wins 2019 Heisman Trophy

After the game, Jackson was clearly unaware that he had surpassed Vick's mark, but teammate and hype man Mark Ingram was there to let him know.
So how do the Madden developers try to combat the popular use of Jackson? Madden developers have used special X-Factors to entice users to play with more stationary quarterbacks such as Tom Brady and Drew Brees.
Just like many of his elusive runs, Jackson established the new standard for rushing quarterbacks in staggering style, doing so in his 14th game of the 2019 season (which includes not playing a full fourth quarter in four games). "This is definitely the best team I've ever been on". In fact, the argument could be made that Jackson has been the best running back this season in addition to his stellar play at quarterback.More news: Disney+ Has Been Downloaded 22 Million Times On Mobile Devices
