Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens were eliminated from the playoffs last Sunday, in a 17-10 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs and Lamar's critics are already adamant he is overrated once again.

Jackson has had an MVP season in 2023-24, and although he lost in a very important game in his career it was not entirely his fault, and did the very best he could given the circumstance. Baltimore's recievers were having trouble getting open and catching passes all day, and that all accumulated when Zay Flowers dove into the endzone in the 4th quarter and then proceeded to fumble the ball.

Baltimore couldn't catch a break all day, and because of that they lost to the chiefs and the media will put all the blame on Jackson's play over everything else, even though it is not deserved.

Jackson threw for 272 yards, 1 touchdown, 1 interception, and rushed for 54 yards on the game as well. Jackson played okay for the most part during the game, and the fact that "Lamar cost them the game" just isn't true, and the media will just use the game as another outlet to call him "just a running back".

We all know what Lamar is capable of, and I wouldn't be suprised to see Jackson back in this type of huge playoff game again next season.
