Who did it better? Lamar Jackson vs. Bengals or Michael Vick vs. Vikings?

The Baltimore Ravens took the winless Cincinnati Bengals to the woodshed during Week 10, embarrassing their AFC North competition, 49-13, in front of their own home fans.

Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson put on a show once again, with a perfect passer rating for the game when he left after the third quarter, but also running roughshod over the Bengals’ defense.

Midway through the third quarter, Jackson had a 47-yard touchdown run that was just incredible: fake handoff, juke, spin move, sprint, score.


Jackson’s running sparked a debate among the Yahoo NFL writers: Was his touchdown today better than one of Michael Vick’s signature plays, a touchdown run in overtime against the Minnesota Vikings? Vick’s run came on Dec. 1, 2002, a 46-yard play you can watch below:

For our money, Jackson’s run today was better. The style points are off the charts — as are the number of broken ankles.

Jackson completed 15 of 17 passes for 223 yards and three touchdowns plus 65 rushing yards and that one amazing score in about three quarters of work.
