MIAMI (AP) — Lamar Jackson has come away with the most coveted hardware at the NFL Awards presentation.

The Baltimore Ravens quarterback joins Tom Brady as the only unanimous choice for The Associated Press NFL Most Valuable Player award. Jackson drew all 50 votes from a nationwide panel of media members who regularly cover the league.

He broke an NFL record for quarterbacks with 1,206 yards rushing, leading an offense that set a league mark with 3,296 yards on the ground.

Jackson is the first Raven to win the award and the seventh consecutive quarterback.
