After the game, Ingram made it clear to any naysayers he was ready to fight if there was any doubt that Jackson should be the MVP.
“The MVP frontrunner,” he told reporters after the game. “If anybody got to say something different about that, then come see me. I’m right here in B’more outside [M&T Bank Stadium]. If you've got an issue with that, come see me. I'm about that. Big trust. Whoop whoop. Lamar Jackson, in the flesh, yes sir.”
