Ravens to sit Lamar Jackson in season finale vs. Steelers; Tyler Huntley to start at QB

Lamar Jackson was just named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week, and his five-touchdown performance in a 56-19 win over the Dolphins will be the last thing MVP voters see in the regular season.

With Baltimore having wrapped up the No. 1 seed in the AFC, John Harbaugh is starting Tyler Huntley in the season finale against the Steelers (9-7) at M&T Bank Stadium.

Jackson dominated Miami in Week 17, passing for 321 yards and five touchdowns on 18 of 21, for a perfect 158.3 passer rating. He added another 35 yards on six carries on the ground.

Jackson will finish this likely MVP season with 3,678 yards passing, 24 touchdowns, and seven interceptions, and his 65.3 QBR is good for fourth in the NFL.

He also logged a team-high 821 yards rushing and five touchdowns.
