Greg Roman was named Baltimore's offensive coordinator in January 2019. He immediately led Baltimore's attack to record-setting heights, ultimately earning him NFL Assistant Coach of the Year honors. In Roman's first season as offensive coordinator, the "revolutionary" Ravens posted the best offensive season in team history, helping the team to a franchise-best 14-2 record. Led by 2019 NFL MVP QB Lamar Jackson, the Ravens ranked No. 1 in points (33.2) and rushing yards (206.0) per game, while they finished No. 2 in total yards (407.6). The Ravens set a new NFL single-season rushing record (3,296), besting the 1978 Patriots (3,165). Baltimore became the first team ever to average 200 passing and 200 rushing yards per game in a season. The 2019 Ravens also set season team records for TDs (64), points (531), net yards (6,521), rushing yards (3,296), first downs (386) and fewest turnovers (15). Jackson accounted for a league-high 43 total TDs, including an NFL-best (and franchise-record) 36 passing scores. Jackson also rushed for 1,206 yards (sixth most in the league), setting a new NFL single-season record by a QB.
