Currently at 908, does Lamar hit or top the 1,000 yards rushing mark for the second consecutive time and establish a new NFL QB record?

Ironically his final opportunity to do so comes against the Bengals who always seem to be there for big Lamar moments. His first start at QB came against the 2018 Bengals, rushed for 117 yards in that one. And then you have the infamous 'Spin' that came on a 47 Yard TD run against the 2019 Bengals(A key highlight of Jackson's MVP campaign). They stand in front of him again to end our 2020 regular season, with an NFL record and playoff birth at stake.

Their 2020 Run D isn't the embarrassment it's been in years past either. Top 10 in Rush Yards Allowed & Top 5 in YPC(3.9). Very similar numbers to the 2020 Giants,.. before we stampeded them today. 

Edit: Won't even try to hide it lol. Messed up on the Bengals' numbers like a dummy, was looking at their Rushing totals on Offense.. not Defense. They're still terrible at stopping the run. 😅🤣 I knew something was off...  You better get that record Lamar.

 

It’s interesting that the Bengals held him to only 3 rushing yards in the previous game. That said, JK Dobbins also had a 34 yard rushing average (one run). I think utilizing JKD on those jet motion reads will open up more space for Lamar. That and this time we’re using FAR more 3 WR sets and thus Lamar can pick up yards scrambling vs simply off of designed runs.

Because of how Lamar has embarrassed the Bengals, I do think those guys have taken that personal and they seem to want to hit him late or target him a bit more. Because of that, I sort of don’t even want to put Lamar into too many situations where he’s running against those guys if those patterns hold.

... though this is interesting that we were in a similar enough situation last season heading into the final game where rushing records were on the table.

If Lamar does indeed dominate on the ground to the tune of 92+ yards rushing, that likely puts us in position to rush for 225+ yards rushing. Again, HIGHLY unlikely this happens, but if the Ravens were to rush for 333 rushing yards against the Bengals, not only would Lamar repeat as hitting 1000 rushing yds back to back, but our rushing offense would repeat as hitting 3000 rushing yards in back to back seasons. Again, highly unlikely we could rush for so much unless the game heads into OT or something, but just throwing it out there.

Speaking of rushing records, JK Dobbins this past game hit 7 rushing TDs on the season, surpassing Jamal Lewis as the most rushing TDs for a rookie RB in Ravens history.

It looks unlikely at this point that Humphrey will be able to break the FF record at this point, though perhaps he can catch the Bengals slipping.

  • The Ravens finish with 3,071 team rushing yards this season to finish with the 4th most rushing yards in history. Falling 19 yards short of the 3rd place Buffalo Bills (with OJ Simpson) for 3rd place (though they did it impressively within only 14 games- which is pretty crazy). Also as mentioned within the GDT, this makes the Ravens the first team in NFL history to rush for 3000 yards in b2b seasons.
  • Related, obviously Lamar Jackson finished the game with 97 rushing yards to put him at 1005 yds rushing on the season. That total puts Lamar Jackson with the 3rd highest rushing total for a QB in NFL history, falling just 34 yards shy of Mike Vick for 2nd place. What’s more, Lamar, similar to the above team record... becomes the first QB in history to rush for 1000 yds in back to back seasons.

Fresh off the presses:

JK Dobbins with his 13 carry, 160 yds rushing performance, puts him at 805 yds on 134 rushing carries; giving him the franchise RB record for most rushing y/a in a single season at 6.01 y/c.

He is the first RB in franchise history to surpass the 6.0 milestone. The only other runner to reach the 6.0 threshold on 12 carries, 60 yards was Cory Ross back in 2007. 

Dobbins also finishes the season with 9 rushing TDs, smashing Jamal Lewis’ franchise rookie rushing record of 6 TDs, by three scores.

I was confused when we drafted Dobbins but he’s been unreal, and his legs could be the thing that gets us over the hump in the wildcard round

Let's also talk about the boys rushing for 3,000+ yards in back to back seasons 😳🔥

Edit just seen DB posted it 😅

You knew I was just waiting. My love of this team reaching unique stats is unreal, had we broken the rushing game record... it would’ve also moved us into 3rd all time in rushing yards for a team on the season.

Agreed. I think this rushing attack that we have this season is actually BETTER than last year. Gus is better than 2019 Gus as both a receiver and as a runner. Justice Hill has superior run vision to his 2019 self based on the sample size provided. While Ingram is easily worse than his 2019 self, Dobbins is easily better than 2019 Ingram. The only RBs I’d consider taking above current Dobbins in franchise history would be Jamal Lewis seasons 1-3 and Rice seasons 2-4... and with Rice it’s closer than I think the stats would indicate. Dobbins is the superior goal line runner and better pass blocker.

I can’t wait to see how good Dobbins can look with an offseason to work on his flaws. If he improves his skills as a receiver, I think he’s a top 5 back in the league. I personally would put him top 12 right now, but could move higher with a huge playoffs showing.
