ESTShareTweetShareShareWith Joe Flacco out of the picture, all eyes are on Lamar JacksonEvan Habeeb-USA TODAY SportsEveryone knew it was coming at some point, but when news broke yesterday that the Ravens had agreed to trade Joe Flacco to the Denver Broncos, it still caught many, including myself, by surprise. Nobody envisioned Eric DeCosta moving this quickly to strike a deal to move Flacco, but that’s exactly what happened. The trade won’t officially be processed until next month, but Flacco’s time in Baltimore has been up since Week 11 of the 2018 season. Nevertheless, it feels a bit surreal that for the first time in his career, Flacco will be wearing a different uniform next season. It was weird seeing Flacco on the sidelines over the second half of this past season as Lamar Jackson’s backup, but it will be even more strange seeing him throw passes for a new organization. Flacco departs from Baltimore the same way he came in; with class and professionalism. And so, after 11 seasons, six playoff appearances, a Super Bowl MVP trophy and one of the most successful postseason runs from a quarterback in NFL history - here we are at the end of the road.Make no mistake about it, the Ravens are Lamar Jackson’s team now. Everything that happens in the next few seasons and potentially beyond is tied to Jackson and his development as a quarterback. This sounds like a lot of pressure for a 21-year old kid to handle but if anyone is up to the challenge Custom Hayden Hurst Jersey , it’s Lamar. When Baltimore traded up to select Jackson at the end of the first round in last years’ draft, there was an obvious sense that he would eventually take over as the starting quarterback. However, given his limitations as a passer and raw talent, many envisioned Flacco remaining the starter for two full seasons before ceding way to Jackson. If Flacco doesn’t suffer a hip injury midseason, which allowed Jackson to seize the opportunity as a starter, does Flacco play out the rest of the season? Maybe so, and it’s possible he could have played well enough to stick around heading into next year. However, we can play the “if this, if that” game all day long. The process of Jackson becoming the starting quarterback ended up moving way faster than most people envisioned. Now, he’s not only the starting quarterback, but the face of the Ravens franchise and unquestioned leader. By all accounts, Jackson appears up to the challenge. A poor postseason performance and disappointing ending can’t take away from what he accomplished in year one. Being thrust into a starting role in the middle of the season, tasked with leading your team to the playoffs and potentially saving your coach’s job is not an easy feat for any quarterback, let alone a 21-year old rookie. But that’s exactly what Jackson did, going 6-1 down the stretch to lead Baltimore to a division title for the first time since 2012. Does he all deserve all the credit? Of course not. The defense was stellar over the second half of the season and the coaching staff managed to adjust to a schematic change on offense on the fly. Still, what Jackson did is a noteworthy and is hopefully a sign of things to come. His needed development as a passer is well-documented, but Jackson has an incredible work ethic, intangibles Hayden Hurst Jersey Discount , and other winning qualities that can’t be taught. Jackson has a rare desire to be great that many young players lack. Amidst boos from the home crowd in a dismal showing through three quarters against the Chargers in the playoffs, Jackson responded by throwing for over 150 yards and two touchdowns in the final frame of play, nearly leading the Ravens to a miraculous comeback. Given the Ravens have hitched their wagon to him as the franchise quarterback going forward, there is some pressure for Jackson to not only improve, but to consistently perform and win games. The standard in Baltimore is success, but Jackson doesn't appear to ever shy away from the moment. Flacco deserves praise for bringing a super bowl to Baltimore and easily becoming the most successful quarterback in franchise history. However, in order for the Ravens to progress moving forward, we must all, as a fanbase, embrace the new era that is upon us. It’s been a long time since we’ve been able to say this, but the Baltimore Ravens now have a new face leading them into a new era - and his name is “Action Jackson”. Baltimore’s defense came up huge on Sunday, limiting a potent Falcons offense to just 131 yards from scrimmage. Tavon Young’s fumble return for a touchdown in the fourth quarter sealed a third consecutive victory for the Ravens. Again it was the Ravens running game leading the way. Gus Edwards and Lamar Jackson controlled the clock, and Kenneth Dixon (8 rushes, 37 yards) ran well in his return to action, too. As a team, the Ravens eclipsed 200 yards rushing for the third game in a row. While there wasn’t many flashy offensive highlights, Baltimore executed the gameplan and came up with big plays when it mattered most. Check out all the top moments and vote for your favorite below! Lamar Jackson 13-yard rushing touchdown: After the Falcons put up three points on their opening drive, Baltimore responded with a touchdown to take an early lead. On a designed option play Hayden Hurst Jersey Super Bowl , Lamar Jackson found the endzone with his legs for the second consecutive game. Jackson showed impressive strength and determination, breaking a tackle and outstretching the ball across the pylon. It was the Ravens only offensive touchdown of the day, and proved to be a big one. Terrell Suggs first quarter sack: The future hall of famer followed up a strong performance against the Raiders with another big game in Week 13. “T-Sizzle” fought through two Atlanta offensive lineman to bring down Matt Ryan, who was being chased outside the pocket. Had Suggs not made the play, the Falcons could have converted the third down and advanced into Baltimore territory. It also brought Suggs to 6.5 sacks on the season. Sam Koch fake punt: Baltimore brought out the trickery in Atlanta, converting on a fake punt early in the second quarter. Sam Koch received the snap and delivered a fairly accurate 21-yard strike to Chris Moore on 4th & 7. It was the fifth time Koch has attempted a pass in his career, and he’s completed an impressive 100% of them. His passing ability may have been called upon even more had Robert Griffin III gotten injured in relief of Lamar Jackson, who was in concussion protocol during the third quarter. Lamar Jackson 16-yard rush: After spending much of the third quarter in concussion protocol, “Action Jackson” returned to the game and made yet another big play on the ground early in the fourth quarter. With the Ravens up by six points and facing a 3rd & 3, Jackson rushed for 16 yards to keep the drive alive. Jackson faked the pass and took off, eluding Falcons defenders down the field. It moved the Ravens closer to mid field and the drive ultimately ended with a field goal to put Baltimore up by two possessions. Justin Tucker 47-yard field goal: Speaking of field goals, Justin Tucker was yet again automatic on Sunday. Fresh off another AFC special teams player of the month award, Tucker converted all four of his field goal attempts and both of his extra points against the Falcons. This 47-yarder extended Baltimore’s lead and put the Ravens up 19-10 with just over seven minutes remaining. Tavon Young fumble return touchdown: For the second consecutive week, the Ravens defense forced a fumble and returned it for a touchdown in the fourth quarter. Patrick Onwuasor blindsided Matt Ryan and knocked the ball loose, and Tavon Young scooped it up before returning the fumble for a touchdown. It was the Ravens sixth forced fumble of the season and all but sealed Baltimore’s victory.
