If there was a betting pool among former LSU defensive stars in the NFL who would be the first to sack Joe Burrow, Patrick Queen won it Sunday.
Queen, a Baltimore Ravens linebacker, had plenty of highlights in the Ravens’ 27-3 win over former Tigers’ teammate Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals.
He had 9 tackles, including 6 solo, and a 53-yard TD return off a fumble recovery in the fourth quarter.
But 9:30 left in the second quarter, he got credit for a sack, a QB hit, a caused fumble and a fumble recovery when he steamrolled a scrambling Burrow with a blindside hit.
“Joe’s a great quarterback, he’s been putting up some great numbers, so we had to get after him,” Queen said in a postgame TV interview.
“LSU prepped me for this. The standard is real high at LSU.
