For the first of what they hope will be many times, the Bengals have won a game with Joe Burrow as their starting quarterback.
Burrow, the first pick in this year’s draft, played a solid game today in Cincinnati as the Bengals beat the Jaguars 33-25. Burrow completed 25 of 36 passes for an even 300 yards, with one touchdown and one interception, and he looked poised and in control of the offense. It was a promising game for a promising franchise quarterback.
The Jaguars got 351 yards out of quarterback Gardner Minshew, and he’s often making plays without getting much help. Undrafted rookie running back James Robinson remains a bright spot for the Jaguars this season as well.
But the Jaguars just don’t have a lot of talent on this roster, and the Bengals delivered a promising win to a limited-capacity crowd in Cincinnati.
