Reigning NFL MVP Lamar Jackson had another underwhelming outing against a strong opponent in Week 11. This pattern is turning out to be a thorn in Jackson’s otherwise impressive CV.
The Florida-born quarterback went 24 of 34, throwing for 249 yards with 2 passing TDs and 1 interception. Despite his best efforts and due to some injury niggles, the Ravens were condemned to a damning defeat at the hand of Bill Belichick’s determined Patriots outfit.
Are the Ravens ready to make a push for the Super Bowl, or are they still lacking in experience? Here’s what their franchise quarterback said about the same.
Lamar Jackson painted a frustrated figure after last night’s 6-point loss to New England. After slumping to a 6-3 record, the Ravens are now on par with the Cleveland Browns franchise in the AFC North Division table.
“We ticked off. Don’t nobody like losing. I know none of you guys like losing. Especially we got a lot of talent on our team. Just got to regroup. Tuesday go watch film on our opponents, Tennessee, and go from there,” Jackson said via NFL Network.
The former Heisman Trophy winner agreed that things do need to improve in the coming weeks.
He said, “We just going — you know, don’t pay back this loss no more.It’s over with; we can’t do nothing about it. We get together, we’re going to talk some things over, see what we are going to adjust, scheme up the team we got next, and build, like I said before.”
John Harbaugh’s boys will take on a Derrick Henry and the Ryan Tannehill-led Tennessee Titans next weekend. They will be desperate for a win as they continue to push for a playoff spot in 2020.
