Lamar Jackson just completed his sixth season as the starting quarterback for the Baltimore Ravens and is likely set to win his second NFL MVP trophy. Beyond just his individual success, though, the Ravens have also enjoyed plenty of that as well. Baltimore has made the NFL Playoffs in five of the six seasons since they drafted Jackson with the final pick of the first round in 2018.

Despite all of that, the narrative around Jackson when it comes playoff time is quite different than otherwise. Put simply, Lamar Jackson hasn't been the same superstar quarterback that we've seen routinely in the regular season when the postseason lights are turned on.

But how bad has it actually been for the Ravens quarterback in the playoffs? Let's take a look at Jackson's playoff record in addition to how he's performed in these games as well.

What is Lamar Jackson's record in the NFL Playoffs?

As the Ravens starter, Lamar Jackson has just a 2-3 record in playoff games in his career after Baltimore's win over the Texans in the 2023-24 Divsional Round. Despite having led his team to the postseason in five of his first six seasons in the NFL, Jackson had just one victory entering the game against Houston, which came in the 2020-21 season and postseason. Moreover, his performance in those playoff games thus far in his career have not quite matched the outings we see him routinely put forth in the regular season.

What is the farthest the Ravens have gone in the playoffs with Lamar Jackson?

The farthest the Ravens have gone in the playoffs with Jackson is the AFC Championship Game in the 2023-24 season and postseason. Prior to that, Jackson had only been as far as the Divisional Round. That came after the quarterback's lone postseason victory over the Titans in the Wild Card Round, but they were promptly dispatched by the Buffalo Bills in the Divisional Round matchup the following week.

Having said all of this, entering the 2023-24 AFC Championship Game, the most games that Lamar Jackson has one in a single postseason is still one, a narrative he'll be looking to flip.

Jackson had only one playoff game in his career in which he's completed more than 60 percent of his passes entering the 2023-24 postseason. Incidentally, that is the one postseason contest that the Ravens had won with him at the helm.

It should also be noted that Baltimore made the playoffs behind Jackson in the 2022-23 season, but the quarterback was unable to play in the Wild Card Round, giving Tyler Huntley the start. The Ravens lost that game as well, 17-24.
