During the Ravens’ 31-17 win over the Washington Football Team on Saturday, Jackson passed Michael Vick as the quickest quarterback to toss for 5,000 yards and rush for 2,000, He arrived at the 2,000-yard hurrying imprint a week ago yet broke 5,000 spending yards Sunday in his 35th career game. Vick required 39 games to accomplish the accomplishment.
