Lamar Jackson: Opposing Defenses Are Calling Out Our Plays

By Ari Meirov

The Ravens are 6-2 on the season and in prime position to make it back to the playoffs for a third consecutive season.

But their offense has not been as electric as it was in 2019.

Appearing on the “Rich Eisen Show,” Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson said opposing defenses know what the offense has planned when they line up.

“They’re calling out our plays, stuff like that,” Jackson said. “They know what we’re doing. Sometimes, stuff won’t go our way, if they’re beating us to the punch.”

Eisen then asked Jackson as to whether he can actually hear defenders call out the Ravens’ plays.

“Yeah, they definitely do,” Jackson said. “Like ‘run’ and stuff like that. ‘Watch out for this; watch out for that.’ Sometimes that’s what’s going on.”

Jackson was the unanimous NFL MVP last season, leading the Ravens’ offense to 31.4 points per game (first in the NFL) and 407 yards per games (second in the NFL). After nine weeks this season, Baltimore ranks 15th in points on offense (24.8) and 23rd in yards (347).

“We had our ups that first week and then we had our downs,” Jackson told Eisen when asked to rate this season so far. “Usually we’re a high-level offense. But it’s been all right. It’s not where we want to be. We’re still winning, so it’s all right, I guess.”

The Ravens are scheduled to face the New England Patriots this week on Sunday Night Football.
