Sunday’s performance from Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson was simply phenomenal. By continuing to avoid throwing interceptions, Jackson went 21-27 on pass attempts and registered a completion rate of 77.8% in the win versus the Lions.

Jackson’s stat line for week 7 also featured 357 pass yards to nine different Ravens receivers. Things went so well, even fullback Patrick Ricard caught a pass for 28 yards. As expected, wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. had a breakout performance with five catches for 49 yards and was targeted seven times.
An infused calm covered Jackson the entire afternoon. Playing with extreme confidence after the week 6 win in London, UK the Ravens seemed almost unmoved by the hype that surrounded the Detroit Lions.
Currently, no hype surrounds the Arizona Cardinals who have been allowing 26 points per game to opponents. Jackson will be looking to carve up the Cardinals’ defense in week 8 with a performance like the one fans saw at M&T Bank Stadium Sunday afternoon.
