No. 3: Lamar Jackson, Baltimore Ravens
2023 NFL Stats: 16 games | 67.2 pct | 3,678 pass yards | 24 pass TDs | 7 INT
Wild Card Round: Bye
Speaking of Lamar Jackson, the Baltimore Ravens quarterback has his eyes on the prize as he begins his playoff run. Out to shake the struggles of playoff past, Jackson knows he needs to deliver. In other words, the 2023 NFL MVP favorite is “locked in.”
Dynamic, dialed in and dangerous, the dual-threat quarterback is looking to avenge past playoff failures and prove to the naysayers that he can show up on the ultimate big stage and take the Ravens all the way. Coming off a bye week, Jackson and the Ravens will need to make a statement early against Stroud and the Texans and set the tone for what Jackson hopes is a Super Bowl run…at least that’s his mission.
"He won't be satisfied until we get a Super Bowl," Ravens offensive tackle Ronnie Stanley said of Jackson, via ESPN, "So I know what I'm getting in my quarterback."
All season long Jackson has turned it up in big matchups. You can bet that won’t stop in the playoffs. The only reason he isn’t ranked No. 1 is that he does need to prove he can win in the playoffs.
