While Joe Burrow managed to reach the end zone for his first NFL score in Week 1, he didn’t throw a touchdown in the Bengals’ loss to the Chargers.
That changed Thursday against the Browns, as Burrow’s first passing score came in the second quarter on a 23-yard strike to tight end C.J. Uzomah.

The throw also caught the attention of Lakers forward and fellow Ohio native LeBron James, the world’s greatest basketball player, who knows a thing or two about having the ‘it’ factor that makes Burrow special.

The score was part of what was a solid start to his first clash with Cleveland, as he’s now 12/15 passing for 109 yards and a score with no turnovers, good for a 119.2 pass rating.
And it came not a moment too soon, as the Bengals were down 14-3 and in danger of getting blown out until the scoring strike, the first of what hopes to be very many in the coming years in the Queen City.
