Baltimore Sun Sunday - - NFL - By Childs Walker

Quar­ter­back La­mar Jack­son has tailed off from his hot start. In Sun­day’s 23-17 win over the Ben­gals, he com­pleted 21 of 33 for 236 yards but ended the day frus­trated with the Ravens’ in­abil­ity to fin­ish drives in the end zone. Jack­son’s top deep threat, Mar­quise Brown, missed the Ben­gals game with an an­kle in­jury and did not prac­tice Wed­nes­day. Ravens coach John Har­baugh said the rookie is day to day. In Brown’s ab­sence, Jack­son strug­gled to find down­field targets.

Quar­ter­back Rus­sell Wil­son is at the front of the MVP race with 14 touch­down passes, zero in­ter­cep­tions and a 124.7 passer rat­ing through six games. Sea­hawks coach Pete Car­roll said he’s never seen Wil­son play bet­ter, which is say­ing some­thing con­sid­er­ing the eight-year vet­eran was al­ready a Hall of Fame can­di­date. Wide re­ceiver Tyler Lock­ett leads the team with 35 catches for 454 yards, and rookie speed burner D.K. Met­calf is av­er­ag­ing 21 yards per catch.
