Lamar Jackson is pretty good for a running back — and for a dancer, too.
The Baltimore Ravens quarterback had a spectacular performance in Week 10 against the Cincinnati Bengals, posting a perfect passer rating en route to a 49-13 victory. It was Baltimore's fifth-straight win as the Ravens continue to cement their spot atop the AFC North division into the back half of the regular season.
However, it was one move in particular during Jackson's 47-yard touchdown run on Sunday that garnered the most attention, and he replicated the moment for a lucky group of reporters after the game.
During what was the longest run of Jackson's young career, the quarterback pulled off a slick spin move that baffled the Bengals and left the field wide open:

In his postgame press conference, Jackson admitted that he had tried the spin move once before during that Saturday's walkthrough. When asked by a reporter how one would attempt such a move during a walkthrough, Jackson elected to demonstrate a much slower version of what had happened during the game.
When another reporter joked about the "slow-motion" choreography, Jackson spun around at the podium again, eliciting a round of laughter from those in the room.
It isn't just Jackson's charisma that has made him a fan-favorite during his second year in the league. The 22-year-old, who won the Heisman Trophy in 2016, is making a convincing case to be named NFL MVP. He has posted a perfect 158.3 passer rating twice this season and boasts explosive running talent in addition to his strong arm — and his dancing shoes.
Jackson and the Ravens next face a challenge in the 6-3 Houston Texans in Baltimore this Sunday.
