All of his talents were on display throughout a Thursday night dismantling of the New York Jets, with Jackson throwing for 212 yards and five touchdowns - the third time this season he's thrown for five scores.

Jackson also ran for 86 yards on eight rushes on Thursday night, bringing his season total to 1,103 yards on the ground to surpass Michael Vick as the most ever recorded in a season by a quarterback.

"It's pretty cool!" Jackson said, when asked by Fox's Erin Andrews how it felt to break Vick's record. "I don't know when I broke it, but..."

"Very early," Andrews said, as Ingram jumped into the conversation, saying "When I told you congratulations!"Later on in the interview, Ingram spoke at length about what Jackson meant to the team, before turning to interview his quarterback on his own.

It's not the first time Ingram has worked as a hype man for Jackson after a stellar performance. After the Ravens dominant 41-7 win over the Texans in Week 11, Ingram took to the post-game press conference podium ahead of Jackson to put his quarterback over.

Jackson and Ingram are clearly having a ball, all while playing like Super Bowl favorites.

Not bad for a running back.
