2019 Thursday Night Football Schedule: How to Watch, Live Stream New York Jets vs. Baltimore Ravens

Lamar Jackson has declared himself fit for the Baltimore Ravens' matchup against the New York Jets despite dealing with a quadricep injury this week.

The runaway favorite for the MVP award this season was limited in practice on Monday and Tuesday but insisted he would be ready to go for Thursday Night Football.

"I feel great. I feel good. I'm 100 [percent]," Jackson said in his press conference after Tuesday's practice. "I'm going to be out there Thursday night. I'm playing to win the game. If I have to be out there all four quarters, that's what it's going to be."

The second-year quarterback completed 64 percent of his 25 passes and threw three touchdown passes as the Ravens extended their winning run to nine games with a 24-17 road win against Buffalo in Week 14.

It marked the third consecutive game Jackson was held to fewer than 200 passing yards and it was also the first time in the last six weeks he was rushed for less than 50 yards.

The 22-year-old admitted he felt teams were targeting his legs more over the past two games, but pointed out the injury had occurred while in the pocket as opposed to during one of his trademark runs.

"We're playing football," explained Jackson, who will be looking to improve to 4-0 in his career as a starter in primetime games on Thursday. "It's an aggressive game. They're trying to make a tackle and I'm trying to make them miss."

Jackson has rushed for 1,017 yards so far this season, becoming only the second quarterback in history to rush for over 1,000 yards in a single NFL season since Michael Vick racked up 1,039 in 2006.

Jackson's ability to threaten teams through the air and on the ground has been crucial for Baltimore this season. The Ravens have the best rushing offense in the NFL at an average of 200.9 yards per game, thanks also to running back Mark Ingram, who has accumulated 807 rushing yards so far this season.

The win over Buffalo last week clinched a playoff spot for Baltimore, and defeating the Jets on Thursday would secure a second consecutive AFC North title. More importantly, it would strengthen the Ravens' bid to finish top of the AFC and secure home field advantage throughout the playoffs.

Courtesy of the head-to-head tiebreaker, the Ravens effectively lead the Patriots by two games with just three weeks left, after New England lost at home to Kansas City last week.

The Jets, meanwhile, arrive in Baltimore on the back of four wins in the last five games. While the rally has come far too late for the team to force its way into the playoff picture, it also confirmed the Jets have enough talent to trouble teams if they can find some much-needed consistency.

Unfortunately for Jets coach Adam Gase, the 22-21 win over Miami on Sunday was overshadowed by the controversy surrounding Le'Veon Bell. The star running back missed the game against the Dolphins with an illness, before being spotted out bowling.

Gase, who has had a difficult relationship with Bell, admitted the night out was not a good look for the player or the team.

Bell, however, defended his decision. "I don't feel bad about what I did," he was quoted as saying by ESPN. "I didn't break any rules. I wasn't a distraction until now."

The Ravens will be hoping the running back isn't available on Thursday, as Bell has 10 touchdowns (seven rushing, three receiving) in nine career games against Baltimore, the most touchdowns he has against any opponent in his career.
