Lamar Jackson, Ravens fall victim to infamous Drake curse

Drake NFL curse

Drake has claimed yet another victim in the sports world.

The Baltimore Ravens lost at home 28-12 to the Tennessee Titans on Saturday night to see their season come to a premature and disappointing end. Those who were following things during the week might have seen it coming, though.

On Tuesday, Ravens star quarterback Lamar Jackson turned 23. Drake, a famous rapper, wished the quarterback happy birthday via Instagram. The message showed Drake wearing clothing that said “Truss” on it, which is a phrase the Ravens have used this season.

Right then and there, Drake officially and publicly showed his support to LJ, and it came before the Ravens’ playoff game.

So what’s the problem?

Drake is notorious for being a frontrunner, and whenever he jumps on a bandwagon, the team seems to lose. He even acknowledged that during the NFL playoffs last year.

Lamar Jackson would respectfully disagree with the notion he was cursed this week. He says he’s been friendly with the rapper for a while.

“Yeah it was pretty cool,” Jackson said of the shoutout. “I’ve been talking to Drake for the longest, you guys don’t know that, but I’ve been talking to him for the longest, so it was pretty cool.”

Jackson can say what he wants, but everyone else will say he fell victim to the curse.

If you’re an athlete, avoid Drake at all costs.
