Bengals beat Jaguars for first win of Joe Burrow era

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.

Bengals receiver Tyler Boyd had an excellent game, and Joe Mixon finished with 151 rushing yards.

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.

  1. You have to feel good for Joe Burrow. The kid took some hits last week. He’s going to be a good NFL QB.

  2. Joe Burrow is doing more with less than Sam Darnold. Looks like the Bengals are in good hands with Burrow.

  3. One of my better predictions. Burrow has looked solid in every game this year. If it weren’t for bad special teams Bengals could be 3 and 1.

  4. I see improvement every week with this team. That’s really all a fan can ask at this point. Arrow pointing up for this crew.

  5. I’m so glad Joe got the win. I like him and know he’ll be a top QB for many years to come.

  6. Yes maxamili, the jags treat every win over the Colts as their Superbowl. It has been that way for their entire existence. They have nothing left now. It really is a pathetic franchise. The only games they get up for year after year are the Colts. Major inferiority complex in jacksonville

  7. “Joe Burrow is doing more with less than Sam Darnold. Looks like the Bengals are in good hands with Burrow.”

    Dumb comments like this is why players and the sports media think NFL Fans are dumber than a box of rocks. The upvotes proves this too.

    So when you say more with less? What in the hell do you mean?

  8. Minshew’s only in his second year, is only a few months older than Burrow, and is playing with a bunch of rookie and 2nd year players himself. If he came from a big school and was playing in a big market, he’d be getting Baker Mayfield-like endorsement money.

  9. Joe out there dropping dimes. Still way too many dropped passes. Had to change my screen name, TB has earned it.

    Joe burrow is the best qb already


    That might actually be true. How would Mahomes do on the Bengals right now? The same? Better? I don’t know, I feel like it’s close.
