It often seems like Lamar Jackson is playing in Madden when he dodgers tackles or makes incredible plays with his legs, but NFL fans are starting to realize that's just the norm for the third-year quarterback.
On Jackson's 37-yard touchdown run Sunday against the Eagles he reached a top speed of 21.01 mph, which is the fastest speed Jackson has reached on any play in his NFL career.

So what are Lamar's thoughts on the run? When asked about it postgame, the MVP quarterback said he "slowed down" and that it was "really just a burst of energy."
If that was not his best effort, can you imagine what is?
