Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow (9) scrambles out of the pocket in the first quarter of the NFL Week 12 game between the Cincinnati Bengals and the Pittsburgh Steelers at Paul Brown Stadium in downtown Cincinnati on Sunday, Nov. 28, 2021.

Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow entered Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers at Paul Brown Stadium with just 55 rushing yards on 24 carries through 10 games this season.

He scrambled for an 8-yard touchdown run - his first rushing TD of 2021 - to complete a0-play, 75-yard drive to start the game and give Cincinnati an early lead during a 41-10 rout of the Steelers.

It turned out to be Burrow's only carry of the day.

It was only the second time this season that the Bengals scored a touchdown on their opening drive of a game.

Social media reactions:

The Bengals added to their lead a short time later with Evan McPherson's 31-yard field goal.

Burrow's 22nd touchdown pass of the season - a 32-yard strike to Tee Higgins - came early in the second quarter.

Later, Burrow was taken down by Steelers linebacker T.J. Watt during Minkah Fitzpatrick's second-quarter interception return.
