Burrow Shines as Bengals Come From Behind to Beat Jags on Last Second FG (24-21)

Thursday Night Football pitted two quarterbacks taken No. 1 overall in the last two drafts, and Joe Burrow got the best of Trevor Lawrence on the stat sheet and the scoreboard. Burrow and the Bengals pulled a 14-point second-half comeback and capped it with a fourth quarter drive to set up the game-winning 35-yard field goal from Evan McPherson as time expired. Burrow has already won more games in 2021 (3) than he did in ten games played as a rookie (2).


Fun Fact: The Jaguars have now lost 19 straight games since starting the 2020 season 1-0, and QB Trevor Lawrence (0-4) has lost more games this season than his entire college and high school careers, combined.
