Jackson throws 3 TD passes, Ravens cruise past Jets 24-9
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Lamar Jackson threw three touchdown passes, including two to Devin Duvernay, and the Baltimore Ravens rolled past the New York Jets 24-9 in the regular-season opener.
Jackson went 17 of 30 for 213 yards. He also threw a touchdown to Rashod Bateman, as well as an interception.
The performance came hours after ESPN reported that Jackson turned down a five-year extension offer worth over $250 million.
The Jets offense struggled to get anything going. Joe Flacco started against the team with whom he won a Super Bowl.
He went 37 of 59 for 307 yards and a touchdown and interception.
