Cincinnati-Joe Burrow threw a franchise record of 525 yards and four touchdowns, while the Cincinnati Bengals beat the depleted Baltimore Ravens 41-21 on Sunday to dominate AFC North.
Barrow, a second-year QB who broke Boomer Esiason’s team record of 522 yards, was 37 yards out of 46 yards with Tyler Boyd twice against Tee Higgins when Bengals (9-6) swept the Ravens. I threw one touchdown pass to each of Joe Mixon. First time since 2015. Cincinnati won 41-17 in Baltimore on October 24th.
Tee Higgins held 12 receptions at 194 yards, the best of his career. Ja’Marr Chase caught 7 at 125 yards and Boyd caught 3 at 85 yards.
Josh Johnson, who signed as a free agent 10 days ago, started in the Ravens quarterback as Lamar Jackson came out with an ankle injury and Tyler Huntley was on the COVID-19 list (8-7). .. His four-yard pass to Rashod Bateman raised Baltimore to 10-7 in the first quarter, but Ravens (especially the injured and devastated secondary) couldn’t catch up with Barrow and Bengals.
Johnson scored 40-28 at 304 yards with two touchdown passes and pass cuts. Tight end Mark Andrews had eight catches and TDs at 125 yards. Devonta Freeman led the team 17 yards and Ravens didn’t run the ball well.
Baltimore hopes to drop out of AFC’s playoff position and regain his injuries and key players from the COVID-19 list in the last two games at home with the Los Angeles Rams and the Pittsburgh Steelers.
In the second half of the rival game, where the result was decided, Barrow continued to throw the ball for a record, and after a two-minute warning, smashed it into Mixon with a 52-yard bomb. Mixon finished 135 yards from Scrimmage-6 catches at 70 yards, 18 carries at 65 yards, and 1 yard touchdown with 4 goals.
The Bengals are in their best season since 2015, when they finally reached the playoffs and lost to the Steelers in the wild card game.
