The Baltimore Ravens have a new star, and their old star is making the most of his talents.
Lamar Jackson and rookie wide receiver Zay Flowers have developed instant chemistry, and it showed again in their win over the Cincinnati Bengals.
Early in the third quarter, Jackson found the rookie out of Boston College with a 52-yard dime that could’ve ended up in a touchdown.
Jackson — who was often criticized for his so-called poor passing skills — effortlessly ripped the football down the field to throw this absolute dart.
That’s why Cleveland Cavaliers star Donovan Mitchell took to Twitter to react to this throw.

Jackson didn’t need to do a lot as a passer in their season debut vs. the Houston Texans, but the Ravens’ new-look offense was still quite sharp.
He was more involved in the passing game vs. the Bengals, completing 24 of 33 passes for a couple of scores, and adding 54 yards on 12 carries on the ground.
The Ravens currently sit on a 2-0 record — including 1-0 in their division — and have lived up to the hype that surrounded them entering the season.
They have another winnable game up next, as they’ll host the Indianapolis Colts, who might be without stellar rookie QB Anthony Richardson, who exited Sunday’s game with a possible concussion.
Things get way tougher in the following weeks, with road games at the Cleveland Browns and Pittsburgh Steelers, which is why it was so crucial for them to take care of business vs. the struggling Bengals while they could.
