Yesterday was not a good day for Baltimore sports fans. First, there's the Orioles. Then, the vaunted Ravens and their running attack were silenced. They watched in horror as Derrick Henry ran ragged all over the Ravens defense, racking up 195 rushing yards on 30 carries en route to a 28-12 Titans victory.
Baltimore's star quarterback Lamar Jackson had 143 rushing yards, 365 passing yards and a touchdown in that game. However, he also barely completed over 50% of his passes and threw two picks. Keep in mind that Jackson threw six picks all season before the divisional round game against Tennessee. This raises the question: Is Lamar Jackson just a bad postseason quarterback? The tweet below has some damning evidence to it.
In his two postseason appearances, Jackson has completed just 50.4% of his passes on average. He's thrown for three touchdowns, three picks, and has fumbled three times all-time in the postseason. Ouch.
Granted, it's not fair to pin such a distinction on such a young quarterback. After all, Jackson is a lock to take home MVP honors this season. However, Ravens fans should be cautious about Jackson's recent performances.
My life! Food, sports, school. It's what it is!
