NFL MVP trophy

On Christmas evening, the Baltimore Ravens (12-3-0) emerged victorious against the San Francisco 49ers in a matchup that was considered the highlight of the season across the league.

In this triumph, the Ravens’ defense managed to thwart Brock Purdy, the leading MVP contender, while Baltimore’s quarterback Lamar Jackson outshone San Francisco’s defense, leading to a decisive 33-19 win. Amassing close to 300 yards in total offense and securing a substantial victory on the road, Jackson now leads the race for his second NFL MVP title.

Currently at the helm of the AFC as the No. 1 seed and just one victory away from clinching home-field advantage for the playoffs, Baltimore could achieve this milestone in their upcoming home game against the Miami Dolphins, potentially marking a significant achievement for Jackson.

Though Jackson’s statistical performance may seem modest when compared to other NFL MVP candidates such as Brock Purdy and Christian McCaffrey of the 49ers, Tua Tagovailoa of the Dolphins, and Josh Allen of the Bills, his leadership has propelled his team to the top position in the NFL, especially following their most remarkable win of the season.
