Lamar Jackson says Ravens will be 'back and better' in 2021 originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington
Lamar Jackson's encore to his 2019 MVP season ended prematurely this past Saturday when he was knocked out of the Ravens divisional round playoff loss to the Bills in the third quarter with a concussion.
Two days after one of the most chaotic seasons in Ravens history came to a close, the star quarterback took to Instagram to reflect on the 2020 campaign.
"It didn’t end how we wanted it to but I’m proud of my Guyz after all we been through we got better throughout the season fought through Covid and all type of adversity," Jackson wrote, before a series of hashtags saying the Ravens will be back and better next season.
Although Jackson was unable to replicate his record-setting season from 2019, the quarterback still turned in an excellent season for Baltimore.
In 15 games, Jackson threw for 2,757 yards, 26 touchdowns and just nine interceptions while rushing for over 1,000 yards for a second straight year. The former Heisman Trophy winner also added seven touchdowns with his legs.
More importantly, though, is that Baltimore went 11-4 with Jackson under center. The Ravens finished the regular season on a five-game winning streak, ending the year with an 11-5 record and a third straight playoff berth.
Despite losing in the divisional round of the playoffs, most of the Ravens' core is intact next season. Baltimore will be once again expected to compete for a Super Bowl title next year.
