Joe Burrow gives himself a ‘D’ in debut as Cincinnati Bengals’ comeback falls short

58

CINCINNATI — Quarterback Joe Burrow was quick to shoulder the blame, warranted or not, after the Cincinnati Bengals lost in his rookie debut.

Burrow gave himself a “D” despite being one play away from scoring the game-winning touchdown in the closing seconds of a 16-13 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday night in Paul Brown Stadium.

The 2020 top overall draft pick refused to settle for any excuses after a late penalty and a missed 31-yard field goal prevented Burrow from becoming the first QB taken No. 1 overall to win in Week 1 of his rookie year since David Carr accomplished the feat in 2002.
