Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow is racking up passing yards like no other rookie in NFL history.

Burrow passed for 406 yards today against the Browns, giving him 2,023 through seven games of his rookie season. That puts Burrow on pace for 4,624 passing yards this season, which would break the NFL’s rookie record, set by Andrew Luck with 4,374 passing yards in 2012.

Another rookie record owned by Luck, for the most 300-yard games for a rookie, is also well within Burrow’s grasp. Burrow now has five 300-yard passing games. Luck’s record is six games.

Today Burrow became the first rookie in NFL history with at least 400 passing yards, three passing touchdowns and a rushing touchdown in a single game.

  1. Herbert is hands down the better QB. If a person has minuscule football knowledge and watches both QBs it is obvious.

  2. It is refreshing to see a rookie QB who is a real passer and not some running back wearing a QB Halloween costume.

  3. Herbert looks great but he does have a much better roster on offense to work with than Burrow does. Burrow looks like the real deal, and is living up to his incredible final season in college. Let’s hope there are two more competent QBs to watch in the NFL. Looking forward to seeing if aria can make it three for three this year.

    Herbert will play for a much better team and unfortunately his legacy will be much greater than Burrow’s for that reason.

    I’m not saying the Bengals are great but it’s not as though the Chargers have an excess of Super Bowls in comparison. How about you calm down in your platitudes.

  6. Love burrow but is sucks he’s putting up all these numbers cause of the moron running the defense.

  7. Both Burrow and Herbert are playing great and they clearly have the goods… the better QB will be determined by which one comes through in the really big moments.

    Dalton folded in big games. Will Burrow be able to replicate his record setting college playoff performances? Will Herbert be able to have the confidence to handle the pressure filled games? Which QB’s teammates will truly believe in their QB during those pivotal moments? When it’s win or go home and everything is on the line, which QB will put their team on their back and will them to victory?

    Both QB’s were expected to struggle this year and both are over preforming. Of course they want to play well but there is no real pressure this year. The honeymoon ends in 2021. Pressure will be on to improve upon their 2020 seasons… Excited to see how it plays out!
