Lamar Jackson had a standout performance against the San Francisco 49ers on Monday Night Football. He had two touchdowns for 252 yards and threw for 45 more. In addition, he had seven carries and completed 23 passes of his 35 attempts. His teammates and head coach had high praise for him after the game.

After the game against the 49ers, John Harbaugh, the head coach of the Ravens hailed him as the prospective MVP winner. He appreciated his effort and acknowledged that his performance had a key role in the success of the team.

Head coach John Harbaugh said, addressing the reporters:

I thought Lamar had an MVP performance. It takes a team to create a performance like that, but it takes a player to play at that level -- to play at an MVP level—it takes a player to play that way. And Lamar was all over the field doing everything.

He later focused on how Lamar Jackson creates space for his teammates and runs the play for the Ravens. The HC emphasized that Jackson always operates with a complicated game plan and makes things happen for the team. Harbaugh also added that Jackson operated through all over the field.

Harbaugh was not the only one to say things about Jackson. Multiple analysts had the same take on the player. They focused that the Ravens look different with the inclusion of Jackson. And when Jackson does not play then the Ravens suffer brutally. He is certainly one of the most impactful players to play the game.

Rookie Zay Flower also had the MVP take on Lamar Jackson

Not only Jim Harbaugh but also rookie Zay Flowers also had the hottest MVP take on Lamar Jackson. He also suggested that Jackson deserves to be the MVP after his stellar performance on the gridiron.

Addressing the reporters, Flowers said:

He ran it; he threw it; he led the team. That's the MVP. You lead your team, you have the best record in the NFL, and he just comes out and continues to come out and do what he [does] game in and game out even though people [say], 'He can't do this. He can't do that,' and he comes out and proves them wrong every time.
