Former LSU and current Baltimore Ravens linebacker Patrick Queen discovered Sunday playing the Cincinnati Bengals with former Tigers’ teammates Joe Burrow and Ja’Marr Chase in the lineup together is much different than without them.
Last year, the Ravens beat the Bengals twice by combined score of 65-6. Burrow played in the first loss but was already out for the season after undergoing knee surgery by the time the teams met in the last game of the regular season.
Fast forward to Sunday. Rookie receiver Chase again proved that Cincy taking him in the first round in 2021 NFL draft and pairing him with his old Tigers’ throwing Burrow was a brilliant move.
Burrow threw for a career-high 416 yards and three TDs and Chase had eight catches for 201 yards including a game-breaking 82-yard TD in a 41-17 Bengals win at Baltimore. Chase’s 754 yards through his first seven games are the most by any player in NFL history through his first seven games.
“We have a lot of reps accumulated the last three or four years,” Burrow said of his connection with Chase. “We’ve been together for a long time. We’ve been throwing on Saturdays together since I was 21 years old.”
