Lamar Jackson earns social media praise for huge performance vs. Florida State
Lamar Jackson, are you kidding me?
The Heisman chatter is officially in full force, and rightfully so. After scoring 13 touchdowns in the first two weeks of the season, Jackson had his work cut out for him against No. 2 Florida State on Saturday.
Or so it seemed. The Cardinals steamrolled the Seminoles by a score of 63-20, and Jackson turned in yet another miraculous performance. He finished the afternoon 13-for-20 with 216 passing yards and a score, but he did most of his damage on the ground. The sophomore rushed for 146 yards and four touchdowns.
As expected, the internet was buzzing. Check out the best social reactions to Jackson’s performance.
