With his flamboyant pace and jaw-dropping elusiveness, Jackson reached 7,000 yards with a 7-yard run in the third quarter against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday. The ruling NFL MVP entered Sunday’s game, when it needed 92 yards to reach the milestone.
Jackson is set to win the NFL MVP and become the second quarterback to reach the playoffs in his first three seasons in the league with Dag Merino. Ravens can get a wild-card berth by beating Cincinnati.
Michael Wick was the only other quarterback to hit 1,000,000 yards running in 2006. Jackson has taken 1000 yards by running in two guards in his first three NFL seasons, setting a single-season record for quarterbacks with 1,206 yards last season.
