3 things we learned about from the Bengals win.

3.  Joe Burrow and Ja’Marr Chase are one of the best QB/WR connections in the entire NFL. 

At first, this was just a young connection that was making some noise but still had a ways to go before you started considering them as one of the better duos. Still, it’s become such a common thing each Sunday now that you can genuinely make the case that Joe Burrow and Ja’Marr Chase are a top QB/WR connection in the entire NFL, even with Chase being a rookie wideout.

Chase went for over 200 yards on Sunday while being guarded by one of the best cornerbacks in the league in Marlon Humphrey. Then, he broke away for an 82-yard touchdown, making the fifth touchdown pass of over 30 yards that Burrow and Chase connected on.

Chase has 754 receiving yards trailing on Cooper Kupp for most in the league and is tied for second with Marquise Brown for receiving touchdowns with six.

Burrow and Chase haven’t surpassed the likes of Davante Adams/Aaron Rodgers, Tyreek Hill/Patrick Mahomes, or Kyler Murray/DeAndre Hopkins.

Still, they are slowly starting to creep their way into the conversation and considering it is only their first season together, the sky is the limit for this young duo, and they seem only to be getting better each week.
