Fox’s Graphic Error in Lamar Jackson vs. Brock Purdy Comparison Raises Embarrassment

Lamar Jackson vs. Brock Purdy
The highly anticipated Monday night game between the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers, both currently holding top seeds in their conferences, took an unexpected turn during Fox’s preview. While comparing the stats of Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson and 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy, who are among the MVP race favorites, Fox made a significant error.

In a graphic showcasing their passer ratings, Fox incorrectly displayed Jackson’s rating as 69.5, far from his actual impressive number of 96.5. If the reported 69.5 were accurate, it would place Jackson at the bottom among all starting quarterbacks in the league.

Brock Purdy currently leads the league in passer rating among starters, while Jackson ranks eighth. The discrepancy in Jackson’s passer rating raised eyebrows, considering his outstanding performance throughout the season. While errors can happen, the notable difference from the correct figure added an unexpected twist to the preview.
