Ravens' Lamar Jackson soars past Eagles great Randall Cunningham for fourth in QB rushing yards

The fleet feet of Lamar Jackson have carried him to history once again.

The Baltimore Ravens quarterback's 8-yard carry in the first quarter of Thursday's win over the Cincinnati Bengals put him into fourth place all-time for QB rushing yards, surpassing Randall Cunningham.

Jackson played through an ankle ailment but still rushed for 54 yards on nine carries, giving him 4,972 for his career as the 26-year-old gets closer to becoming just the fourth QB with 5,000 yards rushing.

Jackson entered Week 11 needing just 11 rushing yards to run past Cunningham (4,928) for the No. 4 spot. He now trails all-time leader Michael Vick (6,109 yards), Cam Newton (5,628) and Russell Wilson (5,197).

Heading into Thursday's rivalry matchup, Jackson's 48.1 rushing yards were tops among QBs.

Only the second QB in NFL history to rush for 1,000 yards in a season (joined by Vick), Jackson is the only signal-caller with multiple 1,000-yard campaigns.

On Thursday, his long-lauded legs carried him up another rung on the all-time QB rushing list.
