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.

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.
