BALTIMORE -- Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson has put another stamp in NFL record books, breaking Michael Vick's single-season rushing record for a quarterback in the first quarter of Thursday night's game against the New York Jets.
Jackson's 5-yard run on the offense's first drive of the game gave him 1,044 yards for the 2019 season, and counting. He passed Vick's previous total of 1,039 yards.
One play later, running back Mark Ingram II scored on a 6-yard touchdown run to give the Ravens a 7-0 lead.
On the offense's second play from scrimmage, Jackson took a zone-read run 20 yards up the Jets' sideline.
Jackson entered Thursday's game 23 yards shy of breaking his NFL idol's record, which has stood since the 2006 season. He previously said it would be a "honor" to pass Vick.
"You deserve it," Vick, now an NFL analyst, said on pre-recorded message on the Fox telecast. "Keep up the hard work."
