Ravens’ Lamar Jackson casually reacts to reaching 5,000 career rushing yards

The Baltimore Ravens came away with an important 20-10 win against the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday evening. In doing so, Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson made some history as he reached 5,000 career rushing yards.

Jackson became the fourth-fastest quarterback in NFL history to reach the 5,000-yard mark on the ground. He beat out lengendary mobile quarterbacks such as Randall Cunningham, Michael Vick and Cam Newton as it only took Jackson 82 career games to achieve the feat.

Following the Ravens’ win, Jackson had a very casual response when he was asked what it means to tally 5,000 career rushing yards.

“Cool,” Jackson said, prompting a laugh from reporters.
