Bengals QB Joe Burrow issues a warning to opposing defenses
Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow spoke to the media following the 34-11 victory over the Lions and took time to praise several different teammates.
Someone he spent a significant time discussing, however, was rookie receiver, Ja’Marr Chase. Burrow had a message for any defense facing the Bengals anytime soon.
Burrow and Chase have picked right back up from where they left off when they were teammates at LSU, connecting on deep pass after deep pass.
While the two didn’t connect for a touchdown this week, Chase still made sure to be that deep threat Burrow could depend on. The rookie receiver finished the game with four catches for 97 yards with a long of 53 yards.
Joe Burrow is warning defenses not to sleep on him and Ja’Marr Chase’s connection.
This is exactly why Cincinnati took Chase fifth overall. They were hoping Burrow and Chase would be able to regain that magic they had in Baton Rouge and so far, they’ve delivered. Chase has yet to have a bad game as a pro and it’s clear that Burrow feels as confident as ever when throwing the ball in his direction.
The offense wasn’t doing much in this game but as soon as Burrow hit Chase with that long ball to end the first half, it felt like things were about to shift. Shift they did, as Cincinnati went on a run in the second half, putting up 24 points and looking dominant. You’d never have known the offense looked anemic in the first half.
Burrow is warning defenses and letting them know that he and Chase are a deadly duo. If you sleep on Burrow and Chase, you might be regretting it for quite some time.
