Primetime football is where we see players become superstars and blossom in front of our eyes as football fans. A name like Lamar Jackson is more recognizable than others in the NFL, but whenever he performs like he has tonight, it only further cements his superstar status.
After a mediocre first half where he threw for 104 yards, Jackson stepped up to the plate and finished the game with over 500 combined yards.
Jackson had nerves of steel converting this touchdown with less than a minute left.
Then he finished off his epic performance with a touchdown throw in overtime to come back from down 16 points.
Coach Harbaugh showed major respect to Lamar after this game and rightfully so.
Is Lamar Jackson a front-runner for MVP this year?
