Ravens QB Lamar Jackson (12.22.19)

Ravens QB Lamar Jackson:

On running a two-minute offense:

“I felt like they were running to the ball. They beat us to the punch sometimes, but I felt like we stopped ourselves with the fumble. There was a miscommunication between me and (RB) Mark (Ingram II). I felt like that was my fault. I should have just let the ball go. We know we needed to score points. We wanted to go into the half with the lead on us. That’s just how we play ball. We have to make something happen. You have to do what you have to do. Anytime we had time left on the clock, our defense did a great job of getting them off of the field. We have to do our job and put points on the board. We kept kicking ourselves, but, on that two-minute drive we knew what we were going to do. We knew what play it was. We knew everything that had to be executed right, and we had success. ”


On the bye in the first round of the playoffs:

“I think it’s going to help us a lot. Let guys rest and recover. We’ve been battling all season on this run. We have to find ourselves some more. The playoffs are going to be tough games, but at M&T Bank Stadium we have a great fan base. We just can’t wait to see what’s going to go down.”


On whether or not he will pay next week:

“Yeah, I want to play. No doubt. But it’s coach’s decision. It’s up to coach.”


On how he’ll remember the regular season:

“13-2? That’s dope. We have a great group of guys. I’m happy right now. I’m startled. We’re probably going to celebrate on the plane. I’m just happy. We have a great right going right now. We just have to keep it going. We want to win the Super Bowl, not just get to the Super Bowl game. We fought hard. They fought hard. They wanted a victory more than we did. I’m just happy with 13-2 right now.”


On the Ravens’ first touchdown:

“The offensive momentum felt different. I don’t know what defense they were in. They blew the coverage. We stayed to the left. Mark was just wide open. He did a great job of just giving me eyes.”


On the Ravens second touchdown:

They went Cover 0. I had to beat the safety off the edge. I wish I was able to hit Mark the first time because he was open already, but the guy grabbed me and I just had to stay up to make a throw. I didn’t know what happened with the catch. I just know when I looked up, we had six and the rest is history.”


On having the most touchdowns in a single season in Ravens history:

“I’ve been throwing them and not running them. You know, ‘Mr. Runningback.’ My guys are doing a great job catching the passes. We’ve just got to keep it going. I’m happy with the regular season, but we’ve got bigger fish to fry.”


On scoring on the first drive in the third quarter:

“Each and every time we touch the ball, we want to score. We knew we needed it. It’s a coveted thing when we’re going out and scoring a touchdown. I know we’ve put a lot of pressure on opposing offenses, so we just have to keep doing what we do. When we got the ball in the second half it was our job to score. Whenever we have the ball, we want to score.”


On the injury to Ravens RB Mark Ingram II:

“It was very tough. We don’t ever want to see that, but we know he’ll be good so we’re happy with that. He has time to recover. Hopefully he’ll be better than 100% and better than ever.”


On what Ravens QB Robert Griffin III has meant to the team:

“Knowledge. He’s a great guy to be around. He’s a great teammate. He’s RGIII. You can’t forget about that. He’s gone and set his own records before. Nothing’s changed. I just can’t wait to see it if it does happen. I already know what’s going to happen. We’re going to turn up.”
