Mark Ingram of the Baltimore Ravens doubles as the team's running back and quarterback Lamar Jackson's hype man/publicist, and he continued his dual job Thursday.

After amassing 86 scrimmage yards and two touchdowns in a 42-21 home win over the New York Jets, Ingram got the opportunity to interview the man now nicknamed "L Freaky."

"Hell yeah! I mean heck yeah!" STOP EVERYTHING YOU ARE DOING AND WATCH THIS POSTGAME INTERVIEW NOW. @Ravens | @ErinAndrews | @Lj_era8 | @markingram21 https://t.co/z6L0IAZTka

Ingram asked Jackson how it felt to break ex-NFL quarterback Mike Vick's single-season rushing record for quarterbacks during the game in addition to winning a second straight AFC North title.

Jackson noted that it felt good but that the Ravens' story of the season was "unwritten," with the team looking to hang up two more banners (AFC Championship and Super Bowl).

The quarterback's humility and desire to pile up his teammates' stats showed in this interview, with Jackson expressing disappointment that he couldn't get Ingram 100 yards.

Jackson noted that it's a goal of his to make sure Ingram finishes with 1,000 rushing yards for the year.

As for the running back, Ingram has told reporters numerous times that he believes Jackson is the MVP and that they should "see me" if they feel otherwise.

“Come SEE ME. LJ for MVP. If you gotta problem, come see ME.” Ravens RB Mark Ingram reiterates that he believes Lamar Jackson should win MVP. https://t.co/8azcNxTE3n https://t.co/yt5mVLzWqN

That's hard to argue after Jackson threw five touchdown passes and rushed for 86 yards in leading the Ravens to a league-best 12-2 record.
