Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson showed Sunday he does more than just run with the football.

Following a five-touchdown performance against the Miami Dolphins in which he racked up 324 passing yards, Jackson was named AFC Offensive Player of the Week.

Jackson also showed off some accuracy by finishing 17-for-20 passing. At 22 years old, he became the youngest player in NFL history to finish a game with a perfect passer rating of 158.3.

After the game, which Baltimore won 59-10, Jackson quipped, “Not bad for a running back.”

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott was named NFC Offensive Player of the Week. On the other side of the ball, Tennessee Titans linebacker Cameron Wake and Minnesota Vikings safety Anthony Harris won Defensive Player of the Week in the AFC and NFC, respectively.
