Taking a snap at the Tennessee Titans’ 48-yard-line, Jackson took the ball and was off to the races. Dodging multiple tackles and rushing all the way to the endzone, Lamar’s touchdown was a sight to behold.

Jackson has registered 7 rushing touchdowns through the regular season. But his first in the playoffs might just be the pick of the bunch.

Becoming the first NFL quarterback with multiple 1,000+ rushing touchdown seasons, Lamar Jackson has the tools to put any game to bed single-handed. The 2019 MVP has had a rocky 2020 regular season, but it seems that the quarterback has peaked at just the right time.

With 5 wins in their last 5, Jackson is replicating some of the form that won him the MVP award last season.

Lamar Jackson registers the longest TD since 2014

The Baltimore Ravens quarterback with his 48-yard-run just registered the longest playoff touchdown play in 7 years. The previous longest run was by the New England Patriots LeGarrette Blount, who rushed for 73-yards against the Indianapolis Colts back in 2014.

And the one before that was by San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick 56-yard-run against the Green Bay Packers back in 2013.

Jackson has produced a number of stunning plays over the course of his 3-year-long career. But none might be as important as this one. With his touchdown and the subsequent field goal conversion, the Ravens went level with the Titans.

After going down 10 to nothing, the Baltimore Ravens have clawed their way back into the game. And thanks to a rushing touchdown by J.K. Dobbins, the Ravens now lead at the Titans backyard 17-10.

With Lamar Jackson desperate to overturn the 0-2 playoff record he has, one can expect a few more such Lamar Jackson specials before the end of the game.
