Joe Burrow scores awesome initial goal utilizing his legs

He didn't make the typical rookie mistakes and only threw one interception. Joe Burrow did not have a good debut as the #1 pick threw for just 193 yards, did not throw for a touchdown, and threw one pick.

There were no fans at Paul Brown Stadium, which might have been for the best.

The Joe Burrow era got off to a disappointing start as the Bengals blew a fourth quarter lead and suffered a 16-13 home loss to the Los Angeles Chargers.

No matter who's the quarterback, the Bengals still can't get out of their own way. Without a preseason, Burrow was taking his first snaps in a game. Burrow did have an impact on the ground as he rushed for 46 yards and a touchdown.

Still, he had a chance for the dramatic win. And when the visitors took over at the 5:13 mark, Cincinnati forced a three-and-out to get the ball back. But things didn't fall our way, like I said. I was hugging my position coach. "They executed well when they needed to, and that's why they won the game". Alas, Bullock appeared to pull a calf muscle on the kick, which sailed wide right. Bullock said that's never happened to him. "We got to bump and do that and I was not impressed with that", Lynn said. "It will get better".

Austin Ekeler and rookie Joshua Kelley combined for 144 yards on 31 carries while Tyrod Taylor was 16 of 30 for 208 yards.

Cincinnati finished the 2019 season with a 2-14 record and the first pick in the NFL Draft.

The Bengals took a low-risk approach with Burrow, using a lot of short passes. Against a limited Chargers offense working behind a shuffled line, the defense allowed only a touchdown and three field goals, one set up by a fumble.

The offensive line had a rough first half. The middle of LA's defense opened, and Burrow ran 23 yards untouched, slamming the ball to the ground in celebration.

The two late drives that ended with an interception and missed field goal provided a spark of what could be. The way he handled himself on that last drive was unbelievable.

"We've got to knock some people off the ball". RG guard Trai Turner was out with a knee injury, replaced by Ryan Groy.

Both the Cleveland Browns and Cincinnati Bengals are coming off losses in Week 1.

The Bengals were surprisingly competitive in their Week 1 game with the Los Angeles Chargers, leading for most of the contest. The pass was incomplete.

That is likely to be Kelley, who scored his first National Football League touchdown from 5 yards during the fourth quarter to tie the game at 13. When L.A. had a first-and-goal on the Cincinnati 2-yard line with 10 minutes to go in the game, the Bengals were able to hold the Chargers to a field goal.
