Since the NFL canceled all preseason games for the 2020 season, this will be the first televised game of the former LSU quarterback in a Bengals uniform.

Burrow, who played at Ohio State before transferring to LSU, grew up in The Plains, Ohio, which is about a three-hour drive from Cincinnati. The Bengals named Burrow one of seven team captains Sept. 9.
