Lamar Jackson Is Firmly Focused on the Postseason

The Baltimore Ravens’ ball-running quarterback Lamar Jackson is famously reverential of New England Patriots signal-caller Tom Brady.

Lamar Jackson called Tom Brady “The G.O.A.T of all G.O.A.T’s” after the two teams played on Sunday. It was as if the Baltimore Ravens hadn’t just handed the New England Patriots their first defeat of the season. 

They did just that, and Lamar Jackson won’t be shy about beating his idol again, should it come to that in the postseason.

The Ravens beat New England 37 – 20, stressing the Patriots defense in ways that it hadn’t been up until now. The 37 points they scored accounted for 60.7% of all points that the Patriots had conceded this season prior to Sunday.

As well as that, the Ravens rushed for 210 yards – the most yardage that the Patriots have given up all season. Jackson led the Ravens with four touchdown drives – which was as many as New England had allowed all season.

The 8 – 1 Patriots currently hold the No.1 seed in the AFC. At 6 – 2, the Ravens hold the number 2 seed. A postseason clash between the two teams in the AFC title game is a distinct possibility. Jackson is ready for the challenge, just as ready as he is to prove that his style of play can flourish in the postseason. 

“When I was on the field, it wasn’t hitting me,” Jackson said.

“I’m trying to compete. When I touch that field, my goal is to come out with victories and that’s what I wanted to do.”

“Like I said, I didn’t care who I was playing against, you know? Tom Brady, the G.O.A.T. of all G.O.A.T.s, six Super Bowls, 20 years doing it, the guy’s still playing like he’s a second-year player, a third-year player like he’s a young guy in the league and still you can’t take nothing from him. It was crazy.

“I know we’re going to see him again, so we’ve just got to prepare.”

“Yeah, yeah, I hear it. But like I said before, the doubters gon’ always be there,” he said of detractors of his playing style.

“I just got to do what I have to do to make it possible, and that’s to win the Super Bowl. When it comes, the doubters gon’ still be there so it really don’t matter. Like I said before, I’m on my way to my goal. My team’s with me. Just got to keep proving them wrong.”
