Joe Burrow may not end up as the only star play drafted by the Cincinnati Bengals during the 2020 NFL Draft.

For the second straight week, rookie receiver Tee Higgins put together a strong performance for Cincinnati, despite an embarrassing 27-3 road loss to the Baltimore Ravens.

Higgins made four catches for a team-high 64 yards and was targeted eight times by Burrow on Sunday.

This comes just a week after the rookie made four grabs for a career-high 77 yards in the Bengals win over the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 4.

After being held without a catch in Week 1, Higgins has now made 12 catches this season for 152 yards and two touchdowns, which both came in the Bengals Week 3 tie with the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Bengals drafted Higgins with the first pick of the second round of the 2020 Draft after he made 135 catches for 2,448 and won a national championship with the Clemson Tigers.

With a frustrated A.J. Green, Higgins may continue to earn more targets as he looks to continue his impressive rookie season.
