Lamar Jackson is no longer a dual-threat quarterback. He went full triple-threat on Sunday.
Jackson, who is very likely to win NFL MVP in less than two weeks, is one of the best runners we've ever seen at quarterback, and he's a heck of a passer, too. And apparently, he can even catch passes in traffic.
Jackson had a fantastic highlight Sunday in the AFC championship game against the Kansas City Chiefs. In the second quarter, he threw a pass that was batted at the line of scrimmage and went way up in the air. Jackson's instincts took over, and he ran ahead, making the catch and gaining 13 yards.
It was a pretty nice catch with a couple of defenders around him, too.
Not only was it a nice catch, but also it was historic.

Jackson had a great highlight in his normal role in the first quarter, buying time to find Zay Flowers for a touchdown pass. Patrick Mahomes was even better in the first half, as the Chiefs took a 17-7 lead by halftime.
It ended up being one of the top highlights in a disappointing finish for the Ravens, who lost 17-10.
