Lamar Jackson didn’t take long to pass Michael Vick in the NFL record books, breaking the QB single-season rushing against the New York Jets.

Lamar Jackson literally ran into the NFL record books during the early portions of Thursday’s game against the New York Jets.

The Baltimore Ravens quarterback sped past Michael Vick for the most rushing yards by an NFL quarterback in a single season. He wasted no time in making history, going for 27 yards on the ground during Baltimore’s opening possession. Vick’s record fell with a five-yard rush on a first down from the Jets’ 11-yard-line.

Jackson’s historic run did come at a price, as he was taken down via a big hit from Jets linebacker Neville Hewitt. However, the yardage was already recorded, and Jackson had 1,044 rushing yards, breaking the tally of 1,039 that Vick earned in 2006 as a member of the Atlanta Falcons. Vick spent a single season with the Jets in 2014.

One play later, Mark Ingram gave the Ravens the lead on a six-yard scoring rush. Jackson proved even more dangerous on Baltimore’s second drive. His 25-yard rush set the Ravens up in the red zone, and he would later find Miles Boykin for a five-yard passing score through the air.

After a Mark Andrews score and a two-point conversion, Baltimore leads the Jets 21-7 as the first half winds down from M&T Bank Stadium.
