Last night’s Monday Night Football matchup between the Cleveland Browns and Baltimore Ravens turned out to be a thriller as reigning NFL MVP Lamar Jackson was able to deliver to his team a “W” during the final minutes of the game. But it almost didn’t happen.
During the third quarter of the game, Lamar unexpectedly trooped it to the locker room with no explanation given to reporters. When the 4th quarter came arund, reports began to come out that the superstar quarterback was cramping badly in his arm and had to get it massaged out.
Then, with the game on the line, time ticking away, and Baltimore’s third-string quarte back writhing in pain on the field with an apparent knee injury, Jackson emerged from the locker room looking like a spring chicken running up and down the sidelines.
Oh, ok. Right on time!
What transpired was a one-play, game-tying touchdown throw from Lamar Jackson to Marquise Brown on a 4th and 5 play with under two minutes left in the game. He eventually led the team down the field with a few seconds left to give his kicker the chance to win the game and they did.
While they’re sticking to their “cramping” story, TMZ is reporting that many people are assuming Lamar simply had to drop some kids off at the pool, a theory that Lamar is adamantly denying because, well, pride.
