This doesn't necessarily mean, however, that the coaching staff is prepared to hand the reigns over to Jackson for the remainder of the season.
Still nursing a hip injury, veteran starter Joe Flacco has yet to be cleared for game action. There's a chance Flacco's status could change in the coming days, Garafolo added, but Jackson remains the choice for now.
After averaging just 92.7 rushing yards in nine games with Flacco under center, Baltimore has run roughshod over Cincinnati and Oakland, averaging 254.5 yards on the ground.
Jackson's passing ability remains exceptionally raw, as expected, with simpler reads and a penchant for risky throws. Like a crafty baseball pitcher trying to trick opposing hitters with a wide array of throwing motions, Jackson has shown the skill to adjust his own delivery, mixing side-arm darts with overhand rainbows depending on the situation. After finding tight end Mark Andrews for a 74-yard gain early in last week's game, he hit speedster John Brown in-stride down the sideline for another big play that was nullified by a holding penalty.
Ravens offensive coaches Marty Mornhinweg and Greg Roman understand that they can't lapse into a predictable one-dimensional offense overly reliant on Jackson's legs. It will be interesting to see what kind of passing plays they cook up for this week's matchup in Atlanta.
If Jackson continues to show improvement in the passing game while leading the Ravens to a third straight win, it will be tough to turn back to Flacco in a tightly contested race for the AFC's No. 6 playoff seed.
