Another historic day for Ja’Marr Chase helps lead to win over Ravens; Burrow sets career high
BALTIMORE (WAFB) - Former LSU star wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase continues to emerge as one of the top receivers in the league already even though he’s just seven games into his rookie campaign.
On Sunday, Oct. 24 Chase became the second youngest receiver ever with 200 or more receiving yards in a single game. In the 41-17 win against the Ravens, Chase caught 8 passes for 201 yards highlighted by a 82-yard touchdown that gave the Cincinnati Bengals a 24-17 lead. Chase is on pace to break the single season rookie record for receiving yards set by former LSU star Justin Jefferson of 1,400 yards just last season.
For the season, the 2019 Fred Biletnikoff Award winner has 754 yards receiving which is the most by any player through their first seven career games in NFL history. Chase now leads the AFC in receiving yards, yards per game with 107.7 and is tied for the AFC lead in touchdown catches with six.
His former college quarterback, Joe Burrow also had a career day against the Ravens as he threw for 416 yards and three scores, on the season Burrow has thrown 17 touchdowns tying Boomer Esiason in 1988 for the most by a Bengals player through the first seven games of a season.
