Baltimore’s Lamar Jackson was torn when asked if he enjoys matchups such as Sunday’s against the Houston Texans and fellow talented and mobile quarterback Deshaun Watson.
“That’s a great quarterback we’re going against (so) I say no, because of how dynamic he is, and our defense has to prepare for him,” he said. “But (yes), you could say that. You could say that, yes.”
So, while Jackson is looking forward to showcasing his talents in a game against Watson, he knows dealing with Houston’s star will be a tall task for his defense.
Ravens coach John Harbaugh agreed with his quarterback and raved about Watson.
“He’ll throw it to anybody. He’ll throw it deep. He’ll throw it short. He’ll throw it to every different receiver — you saw that last week — and he’ll run,” Harbaugh said. “It’s a big concern for a defense — a major problem for any defense and we’re working to try to figure it out this week.”
