Joe Burrow

Paycor Stadium exploded in cheers after quarterback Joe Burrow completed a 59-yard touchdown throw to wide receiver Tee Higgins in the second quarter on Thursday against the Miami Dolphins, just one play after fans booed the Bengals’ lack of offense.

Despite scoring a touchdown on its opening drive, Cincinnati was struggling to find its offensive groove and faced a third-and-11.

With Higgins all by himself, Burrow finally had the chance to trust his target and throw a TD pass like he had promised all week. The Bengals were successful even against a strong defensive back like Xavien Howard of the Dolphins. When Higgins caught the ball, he escaped Howard’s hands and ran it in for a touchdown, extending the Bengals’ advantage to 14-6.

Career

Joe Burrow

By beating the Las Vegas Raiders 26-19 in the Wild Card round thanks to two touchdown pass from Burrow, the Cincinnati Bengals ended a postseason drought that had lasted since the 1990 season. Burrow threw for 348 yards and a pick in the Bengals’ Divisional round win over the top-seeded Tennessee Titans, a 19-16 victory that was the franchise’s first road playoff victory in franchise history.

Despite being sacked nine times, Burrow led his team to victory, making him the most-sacked quarterback to ever win a playoff game and matching the record set by Warren Moon in 1993.

Burrow threw for 250 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception in the AFC Championship Game victory over the Kansas City Chiefs, which the Cincinnati Bengals ultimately won 27-24 in overtime despite trailing 21-3. In a conference championship game, the 18-point comeback was matched for largest with the 2006 Indianapolis Colts.

It was the Bengals’ first trip to the Super Bowl since Super Bowl XXIII in 1988, and with this win, they made it. Burrow threw for 263 yards and a touchdown in the Super Bowl, but his team lost 23-20 to the Los Angeles Rams despite the fact that he was sacked 7 times. With 19 sacks in the playoffs, Burrow broke the record set by Wade Wilson in 1987.
