The NFL quarterback who is the heavy favorite to win this year’s Most Valuable Player award says his Christian faith helps him stay grounded.

Baltimore quarterback Lamar Jackson has guided the Ravens to a league-best record of 12-2 and leads the league in several key categories, including passing touchdowns (33) and quarterback rating (81.3). The duel-threat Jackson also leads all quarterbacks in rushing yards (1,103).

Asked this week what keeps him humble, Jackson responded simply, “the Lord.”

“I give Him all his praise, the glory, the honor, because without Him I could have been doing anything,” Jackson said.

“I’ll be thinking about it, talking to Him throughout the day like, ‘Man, appreciate You. I thank You.’ Because, when you feel like you’re bigger than the Lord, that’s when all that success dies. It goes away. You have to let Him know He’s the reason you’re having that much success.”

Jackson also referenced his teammates, coaches and family.

“We’ve just got to keep going and let the Lord know he’s No. 1,” he said.
