Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals are making history this Sunday with the franchise’s first AFC Championship game appearance since 1988. Burrow overcame a playoff record of nine sacks in Saturday’s 19-16 upset over the No. 1 seed Tennessee Titans. Burrow finished 28-of-37 with 348 passing yards, zero touchdown passes, and an interception. Rookie kicker Evan McPherson came in clutch making all four field goals on Saturday afternoon, including the game-winning 52-yard field goal at the whistle. McPherson, a fifth-round pick in last year’s NFL draft, also delivered for his team last weekend, making four field goals in the Wild Card round win over the Raiders.

Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs put on a show in Sunday night’s 42-36 win at home against the Buffalo Bills. The Bills and Chiefs scored a combined total of 25 points in the remaining two minutes of the game to force overtime where Kansas City ultimately won the coin toss and sealed Buffalo’s fate with an 8-yard touchdown pass from Mahomes to TE Travis Kelce. Mahomes passed for 378 yards and three touchdowns and ran for 69 yards and a touchdown in the win making him the first quarterback in NFL history with a 107.2 passer rating in the postseason.

Sunday’s game will be the second meeting between the Chiefs and Bengals this season. The Bengals defeated the Chiefs 34-31 in week 17 at Paul Brown Stadium where Burrow threw for 446 yards and four touchdowns while Mahomes threw for 259 yards and two touchdowns.

Lamar Jackson continues to exceed expectations while betting on himself this season

0 Comments

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson took the ultimate chance and is betting on himself this NFL season. After failing to reach an agreement with the Ravens on a long-term extension, the Pompano Beach, Florida native, who went 32nd overall in the 2018 draft, is currently playing on the $23 million 5th-year option of his rookie contract.

Jackson reportedly turned down a 5-year offer worth roughly $250 million, with $133 million guaranteed — something many were not surprised by because Deshaun Jackson’s contract, signed this summer, changed the goalposts for QB contracts, especially for a dual-threat player like Lamar Jackson who runs the ball as well as he throws the ball. This week, Jackson will face a major early season test as the 2-2 Ravens host Joe Burrow and the 2-2 Bengals on Sunday Night Football.

Lamar Jackson’s rushing ability

The 2019 NFL MVP already has 13 total touchdowns this season, including 11 pass touchdowns, and currently leads the Ravens with 316 rush yards — the most of any quarterback in the NFL this season. He also ranks in the league’s top 10 in rushing yards, for all players (ranked 9th entering Week 5). Additionally, Jackson was named AFC Offensive Player of the Month in September for the second time in his career.

Powered in part by Jackson, the Ravens offense ranked first in rush yards per game in 2019 (206) and 2020 (191.9) and was third in 2021 (145.8). In 2022, the team ranks 8th entering Week 5 (142).

What will happen with Lamar Jackson’s contract at the end of the season?

Lamar Jackson is currently set to become a free agent after the season, however, he could be franchised tagged by the Ravens.

Does Lamar Jackson have an agent?

Lamar Jackson has represented himself during negotiations while leaning on the help of his mother, Felicia Jones, and the NFLPA (which reportedly advised him that he was justified to demand a fully guaranteed deal).

What other notable contracts were recently signed by NFL quarterbacks?

  • Russell Wilson: 5 years, $245 million ($124M fully guaranteed) – August 2022
  • Kyler Murray: 5 years, $230.5 million ($103.3M fully guaranteed) – July 2022
  • Deshaun Watson: 5 years, $230 million (fully guaranteed) – March 2022
  • Josh Allen: 6 years, $258 million ($100M fully guaranteed) – August 2021
  • Patrick Mahomes: 10 years, $450 million ($63.1M fully guaranteed) – July 2020
