Lamar Jackson flops, hits just two targets in Pro Bowl skills competition

Lamar Jackson led his Ravens to an NFL-best 14-2 regular-season record, throwing for 3,127 yards and 36 touchdowns against just six interceptions while adding another 1,206 yards and seven touchdowns on the ground.

It was a historic season for a quarterback — even with that one-and-done postseason performance — and it'll likely earn Jackson the title of NFL MVP.

What Jackson won't be earning, however, is Pro Bowl skills challenge MVP. In the precision passing contest, Jackson ... struggled. He didn't put up a goose egg, but he came about as close as possible, hitting just two one-point targets for a total of two points, the worst total of any competitor.

Watch for yourself in full right here:

The event featured two quarterbacks and one non-quarterback for each conference. For the AFC, Deshaun Watson and Jarvis Landry joined Jackson. They put up nine and six points, respectively.

On the NFC side, Kirk Cousins and Russell Wilson lit it up, posting 19 and 18 points, respectively, while Packers receiver Davante Adams posted six points of his own, tying Landry for the non-quarterbacks.

So for those keeping track at home, the final tally looked like this:

  • Cousins (19)
  • Wilson (18)
  • Watson (9)
  • Adams/Landry (6)
  • Jackson (2)

I would say "not bad for a running back" here, but ... two receivers beat him, so it's still pretty bad for a running back.

He did have this going for him, though:

Thankfully for Jackson and the Ravens, the Pro Bowl is silly and only six people saw his performance in real-time. He'll be OK.
