BALTIMORE (WMAR) — For the fourth time this season, Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson has been named AFC Player of the Week.

It was the first time a quarterback had thrown for at least five touchdowns in his Monday Night Football debut.

On top of that, Jackson now has 876 rushing yards on the season, putting him on pace to shatter the all time quarterback record of 1,039, set by Michael Vick in 2006.

With his 24 touchdown passes, Jackson is tied for the league lead.

The last player to be named Player of the Week four or more times in a season, was 2015, when Panthers quarterback Cam Newton won it five times and took home the MVP award, which Jackson is currently the favorite to win.

Earlier this season, Jackson became only the second quarterback in NFL history to record two perfect passer ratings in two separate games in the same season. That feat resulted in his jersey and cleats being displayed at the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Baltimore has now won seven consecutive games. For his career, Jackson is now 15-3 as a starter.
