Lamar Jackson has earned him the NFL’s greatest honor……. again. Louisville Football now is the ONLY school with multiple NFL MVP award winners. Plus Lamar Jackson is the ONLY Heisman Trophy winner with multiple NFL MVPs…… he’s only 27 years old.

The Ravens quarterback was named 2023 NFL Most Valuable Player on Thursday at NFL Honors at Resorts World, marking the second time he’s won the award after he took home the honor following the 2019 season.

Jackson’s award was one of the least surprising of all honors distributed on Thursday, as he garnered 493 points with 49 of 50 first-place votes. Bills quarterback Josh Allen took home the only other first-place votes and was fifth overall with 80 points. Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott (152) was second, 49ers running back Christian McCaffrey (147) was third and 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy was fourth with 97 points.

Jackson finished in the top five in a number of key passing metrics, including passing yards per attempt (8), touchdown-to-interception ratio (24-7) and passer rating (102.7) while also ending the year atop the quarterbacks leaderboard for rushing yards (821). Thanks to a white-hot final six weeks — including stellar showings in dominant victories over San Francisco and Miami — Jackson ran away with an award that was far from settled entering December, but became a foregone conclusion by January.

The 27-year-old Jackson became the second-youngest player to win multiple MVPs, sneaking past Brett Favre and Patrick Mahomes by mere months into a place behind Jim Brown, who had two MVPs in his trophy case before he’d turned 23. It’s elite company, which Jackson certainly deserved to join.

But with Jackson only just entering his prime at 27 years old, the Ravens are lucky to call one of the NFL’s most thrilling talents their own. And now, they can call him a two-time MVP.
