The Cincinnati Bengals rookie earns a PFWA All-Rookie Team nod.

We’re calling it now (and you should too). Justin Jefferson will haul in 75 passes. He’ll eclipse 1,100 yards, and for his efforts, he’ll earn a well-deserved spot on the Pro Football Writers of America’s All-Rookie Team.

Following the 2020 regular season, Jefferson earned Second-team All-Pro honors, a Pro Bowl nod, and a spot on the PFWA All-Rookie Team. What’s probably more impressive is he did it with Kirk Cousins tossing him the rock. That’s no small task.

Chase has a very talented Burrow, someone who could lead this Cincinnati Bengals team for the next ten seasons and someone who may be as talented as Carson Palmer was. Can we argue that Burrow came into the NFL having been a tad higher on the talent scale than Andy Dalton was when he showed up? It’s possible.

We can also argue that the NFL game is tougher, faster, and more competitive, but when Joe Burrow and Ja’Marr Chase get their chemistry down again, these two are going to be fun to watch. Enjoy this Bengals fans. Cincy has figured out both QB1 and WR1. Now they just need to work on some of the other details.
