Ravens head coach John Harbaugh and QB Lamar Jackson have a unique relationship on the field.
While up one point with a minute left to go in the game on their own 33-yard line and needing a yard to get a first down, the Ravens had to make a tough decision on fourth down against the Chiefs.
Before making his decision, Harbaugh asked Jackson if he wanted to go for it which was caught by NBC’s cameras.

Lamar said yes to Harbaugh and proceeded to get the first down on a running play. Amazing.

Update: Jackson went on to confirm that Harbaugh asked him if he wanted to go for it on 4th down.
“Coach asked me should we go for it, I said hell yeah just like Seattle two years ago, we had to get it”
