Bengals’ Burrow breaks new ground for rookie QBs

It was a good Sunday for Cincinnati Bengals rookie quarterback Joe Burrow.

Burrow, the 2020 No. 1 overall draft pick out of LSU, picked up his first NFL victory Sunday as the Bengals (1-2-1) knocked off the visiting Jacksonville Jaguars 33-25 at Paul Brown Stadium. The win was the first for coach Zac Taylor (1-10-1) in 12 one-possession games with the Bengals.

In the process, Burrow made NFL history as he became the first rookie quarterback in league history to throw for at least 300 yards in three straight games.

Burrow hit on 25 of 36 passes for 300 yards against the Jags, with one touchdown and one interception. He notched 316 yards in a loss at the Cleveland Browns in Week 2, and 312 yards in a tie at the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 3.

“We got the win; that’s all I care about,” Burrow said Sunday. “I can throw for 7 or 500 yards — it doesn’t matter to me.”

Burrow has enjoyed a passer rating above 90.0 in each of the past three games as well. Through his first four NFL starts, he has completed 64.5 percent of his passes for 1,121 yards and six touchdowns against two interceptions.
