Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson can throw a ton of interceptions before his QBR rating starts to resemble Baker Mayfield’s.

According to Ben Rosen, the Louisville Heisman winner can toss eight straight interceptions to start the game this Sunday against the Browns, and he’ll still have a better quarterback rating than the man who was drafted first overall in his class.

Whether you love Baker Mayfield or hate him, you have to admit this is just laugh-out-loud funny. Mayfield had all the hype in the world, Jackson had more critics than we knew what to do with and now he’s out here balling while Mayfield struggles.

The Browns have been awful for large chunks of the season so far. Mayfield has looked like he’s out of his element and he just cost the team a game.

On the season so far, the Oklahoma Heisman winner has led his team to a 1-2 record and has thrown five interceptions and only three touchdowns.

You know who has been insanely impressive over the same time period? Lamar Jackson, who has thrown seven touchdowns and no interceptions through three games as the Ravens are 2-1.

As he would say, it’s not too bad for a running back.

Something tells me the Ravens are likely going to make quick work of the Browns this Sunday. Jackson will likely do just about whatever he wants on the field. I guess that’s what happens when you spend more time focusing on playing quarterback than being a celebrity.

We’ll have to see if Mayfield and the Browns can turn things around. So far, the entire organization has greatly disappointed.
