Lamar Jackson happy with win, but still feels Ravens can improve

Lamar Jackson happy with win, still feels Ravens can improve originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington

The Baltimore Ravens got back into the win column with a victory Sunday over the Washington Football Team 31-17.

A win is a win, of course, but Lamar Jackson said afterward that his team still has room to improve. 

The Ravens came into the contest with a chip on their shoulder wanting to bounce back from that average performance against the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday Night Football. The Ravens did bounce back, but the offense had it’s struggles early in the game putting up just seven points in the first quarter. 

It took some time to get going, but the offense did find its rhythm. The highlights were Jackson’s 50-yard touchdown run and the two touchdowns to tight end Mark Andrews.

Harbaugh said postgame that he called Andrews “Mark Jackson” when he came off the field for one of those touchdowns. Can’t blame the head coach for mixing up his two playmakers’ names. 

The offense put up enough points for former Washington Football quarterback Robert Griffin III to close out the game and Marlon Humphrey shared postgame an exchange he had with Jackson on the bench during that time. Humphrey said Lamar told him the offense needs to do better. He continued by saying even if Jackson put up 40, I think he’d still be critiquing his game. Nice to have players like that on your side. 

The Ravens look to build on the win next week when they host the Cincinnati Bengals at M&T Bank Stadium.
