Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson entered the 2021 NFL MVP talk with a record breaking performance against the Indianapolis Colts and received extremely high praise from Skip Bayless.

Bayless has a well-documented love for Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady, which makes Bradyesque one of the highest compliments he can get.

Bayless added his thoughts on Jackson’s performance Despite falling 19 points, he tweeted, “What a great comeback for Lamar Jackson, who shook off his ‘bad night’ and started playing like the MVP he was.”

Despite a stellar start to the season, including a long-awaited win over Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs, Jackson was not seen as one of the front-runners in the NFL’s Most Valuable Player Awards that season.

But after a 442-yard night that saw Jackson touchdown four times in a row to complete the biggest comeback of his career, many league watchers endorse the 24-year-old quarterback for MVP.

Steven Ruiz from The wrestler pointed out that all four of the Ravens’ wins that season were largely thanks to Jackson, whether he used his arm or his legs to get the job done.

Jackson’s former backup Robert Griffin III tweeted, “LAMAR JACKSON MVP RIGHT NOW”, right after Jackson’s winning touchdown against receiver marquise ‘Hollywood’ Brown in extra time. Griffin, now an ESPN analyst, also placed Jackson at the top of his MVP rankings earlier this season.

Griffin’s ESPN colleague Dan Graziano insisted on adding his support for Jackson’s MVP campaign:

Trevor Sikkema from Pro Football Focus offered his perspective of Jackson’s unique abilities, saying, “We all must do our part to appreciate Lamar Jackson. We won’t see many like him as long as we watch the sport. “

Former NFL quarterback and current ESPN analyst Dan Orlovsky must have used a crystal ball in promoting Jackson to MVP before the game even started on Monday night. He went to Twitter for a victory round after Jackson wanted the Ravens to win.

Despite a difficult start for the Ravens offense, who scored just three points in the first half, Jackson stepped in after half time, took over the game, and led Baltimore to three straight touchdowns in the fourth quarter and extra time.

By the time the dust settled, Jackson had delivered one of the most impressive feats of his career, including an NFL record percentage of 86% in a game with more than 40 attempts to pass or 400 yards.

While the 19-point primetime comeback over the Colts may be Jackson’s unique MVP moment this season, his MVP case is much stronger than just a game.

Not only has Jackson won more total yards than any other player in the NFL in five weeks, but his 1,805 combined pass and rushing yards are more than 16 other teams in the league! That’s half of the NFL Jackson single-handedly won this year, making him the most prolific player in the league this season.

Unsurprisingly, Ravens fans were quick to pick up on today’s performance as Exhibit A in their case for Jackson’s MVP candidacy.

‘MV-P’ chants echoed throughout M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore as Ravens fans celebrated the exciting win and their intrepid quarterback.
