FIRST CAREER TOUCHDOWN Jackson’s first NFL touchdown came in Week 7 of the 2018 season, when the rookie was still the Baltimore backup. Ravens head coach John Harbaughwanted to use his talented first-round pick in a variety of packages. With eight seconds remaining in the first half against the NewOrleans Saints, the Ravens lined up on 2nd and goal from the 1-yard line with Jackson under center and starting QB Joe Flacco lined up wide to his right. Jackson took a shotgun snap and faked a handoff to RB Alex Collins who ran from right to left. The Saints defense bought the fake, and Jackson powered through up the middle to give the Ravens a 10–7 lead going into the half.
