Cincinnati Bengals Weekly MVPs

Offense and Rookie: Ja’Marr Chase 

Ja’Marr Chase was by far the best player on the field for the Bengals offense on Sunday. Every time the Bengals needed a big play or a 3rd down conversion, it seemed like Chase was the one stepping up and getting the job done.

Chase ended the game with six catches, 159 yards, and a touchdown which went for 70 yards at the end of the first half. Then, late in overtime, Chase made an incredible toe touch grab on the sideline, which set up McPherson’s will, a manageable game-winning field goal which he went on to miss from 49 yards out.

Nonetheless, this season, Ja’Marr Chase has been the best Bengals receiver and has Randy Moss-like rookie numbers. Through five career games, Chase has 23 receptions, 453 yards, five touchdowns, and 90.6 yards per game.

In Moss’ rookie season with the Vikings, he had 22 receptions, 463 yards, six touchdowns, and 92.6 yards per game. Seeing the similarities in their rookie season should put Bengals fans at ease about any concerns they may have had before starting if they weren’t already at ease.

Chase is here to stay, and it’s safe to say he is the leading offensive rookie of the year so far through the early part of the season. Chase is your offensive MVP and is he also your Rookie MVP for this week.
