Super Bowl LIV is in Lamar Jackson's backyard, but don't expect him to pay it much (or any) attention.
After being knocked out in the divisional playoffs, Jackson is taking a pass on the whole thing.
"It's going to be a great game. I don't really care who's going to win because we're not in it, to be honest," Jackson told the NFL Network's Omar Ruiz. "In my town. I'm not going to be there at all because we're not in it."
Jackson took it one step further in another interview, saying he won't even tune in to watch the game on TV.
Jackson will be in the area the night before the big game to (presumably) accept the Most Valuable Player award at NFL Honors. Other Ravens players who live in or are from the area, such as running back Mark Ingram II, wide receiver Marquise Brown, and wide receiver Willie Snead IV, have been partaking in the Super Bowl festivities this week.
"We're going to do everything possible to get back to Tampa in the Super Bowl next year," Ingram said.
As far as his prediction, Jackson didn't have one.
The Ravens lost to the Kansas City Chiefs, 33-28, in Week 3 and would have liked to get another shot at them in the playoffs with a bolstered defense. Baltimore beat the 49ers, 20-17, in a rainy game in Week 13.
"We beat one, we lost to one, but both are great teams," Jackson said. "KC's got fast guys on offense, got a great quarterback. 49ers got a great quarterback, great skill positions, get tight ends. It's going to be a great game."
It's just one he says he won't be watching.
