Bengals News (9/28): Setting the tone

Joe Burrow makes it very clear how he and the team feels after the tie on Sunday.

Eagles Sack Burrow's First Victory And Force Tie
Just when it seemed OK on Sunday to write the words, "Let The Legend Begin," the Bengals would take the pen out of your hand and scrawl something else during a strange game with the Eagles that fittingly ended in a 23-23 knot of angst for the winless teams.

Quick Hits: Joe Burrow on the tie - You don't win, you lose
Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins caught his first two NFL touchdowns and wide receiver Tyler Boyd had the eighth 100-yard game of his career with 125 yards on ten catches. Meanwhile, wide receiver A.J. Green caught five balls for 36 yards.

What Zac Taylor, Joe Burrow Said After The Week 3 Game Against The Eagles
"I've never tied in my life. It feels strange, for sure. I know it sure as hell doesn't feel like we won. That's what I can tell you. There were so many opportunities we had out there. We just missed that one game-breaking play there at the end. There were some things from all three phases that were positive, but there was just no game-changing moment that took the game over for us."

Bengals and Eagles tie 23-23 in Week 3
Burrow opened the overtime with a 12-yard slant to wide receiver A.J. Green. After a six-yard Mixon run, Burrow went play-action to Green over the middle but cornerback Darius Slay knocked it away. Then on third-and-four, Burrow went to Green again over the middle again, but he got nothing with Slay all over him.

Still winless, but Bengals rookie Joe Burrow showing progress
"We got in a pretty good rhythm there in the third quarter," said Burrow, who was 31-of-44 passing for 312 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions. "If we punched that one red-zone drive in where we ended up settling for a field goal, then we win this game."

NFL Week 3: What we learned from Sunday's games
1) Russell Wilson has now cooked enough to allow us to officially refer to him as executive chef. Wilson became the first quarterback in the history of the NFL -- which is in its 101st season, mind you -- to throw for four or more touchdowns in each of his team's first three games Sunday, cementing his current standing as the hottest quarterback in the NFL. DK Metcalf was starting to grow little bumps that could've become horns by Sunday evening because of his goal line fumble when Wilson eyed him and lofted a well-placed pass to the second-year receiver for the go-ahead touchdown. The connection between Wilson and Tyler Lockett is producing at an incredible clip. When Dallas took a one-point lead with a Greg Zuerlein field goal, it felt as if it was only a matter of time before Russ once again entered the kitchen and started cooking. He produced yet another five-star meal in Week 3.

Nick Foles rallies Bears to win; Matt Nagy mum on starting QB
Foles threw three touchdown passes in the second half to rally the Bears to a 30-26 win after trailing by 16 points in the second half. The journeyman replaced Trubisky in the third quarter against the Falcons following an interception.

Short-handed Raiders struggle to stop Patriots' rushing attack in loss
There was a pause, and then an instruction to look at their defense. But the Raiders had just beaten the New Orleans Saints on Monday night, and made Drew Brees' right arm look old, hadn't they? Maybe, the evaluator said, but we'd know a lot more after their next three games, against the Patriots, Bills and Chiefs.

Russell Wilson sets NFL TD record to lead Seahawks past Cowboys
Wilson's five passing touchdowns in Sunday's 38-31 win over the Dallas Cowboys gave him 14 on the year, breaking Patrick Mahomes' record of 13 set in 2018. It also made Wilson the first player in NFL history to throw for four or more touchdowns in each of his team's first three games.
