Every time two divisional rivals with playoff hopes face off in the NFL, you know that there are going to be plenty of epic moments. No one wants to lose and they fight with bones and nails to get the job done.
Needless to say, the Monday Night Football clash between Baltimore Ravens and Cleveland Browns wasn't the exception to that rule, as the game was full of excitement both on and off the gridiron.
Both even on a game that featured 12 touchdowns, multiple lead changes, a safety, and an epic comeback by the winning side, most of the attention focused on something that happened in the locker room.
Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson spent most of the fourth quarter in the locker room with an undisclosed situation. Obviously, social media speculated that he was on the toilet, as there was no actual sign of injury.
Lamar Jackson Says He Was Cramping
Jackson came back with 2 minutes left to play in the game and led his offense to a win with a couple of epic plays. Apparently, that little break he took was just what he needed to get going after struggling to get much on the air for most of the game.
But, when asked about why he left the game in the first place, Jackson joked by saying that he 'didn't pull a Paul Pierce' and that he just had the cramps. In fact, he even repeated that alibi on his Twitter account.
For those who lack the context, Paul Pierce once faked a knee injury in the 2008 NBA Finals. He was rushed to the locker room in a wheelchair and then came back as if it had never happened. Years later, Pierce confirmed the conspiracy theory that stated that he just needed to hit the can.
Whatever the case may be, it doesn't seem like that little run he did to the locker room was due to cramps. It seems like we'll never know the truth, but at the end of the day, all that matters is that he delivered big time when it mattered the most.
