Lamar Jackson certainly made the most of his big opportunity on Sunday afternoon.
In his first career start, Jackson helped lead the Baltimore Ravens 24-21 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals.
Jackson completed 13-of-19 passes for 150-yards with one interception. He rushed for 117-yards on 27-attempts.
Per ESPN, Jackson made history in more ways than one.
—His 117 rushing yards are the second-most by a rookie quarterback since 1970 (only teammate Robert Griffin III had more) and set a Ravens single-game record.
—Jackson became the first NFL quarterback since 2016 to rush for 100 yards in a game and produced the most rushing yards by a quarterback in four years.
—-His 27 carries are the most by a quarterback in the Super Bowl era (since 1966).
—He reached 15-plus miles per hour on 14 carries, which are the most by any player in a game this season, according to NFL Next Gen Stats.<
