Jake Browning makes NFL history, again

What a ride.

The Cincinnati Bengals are riding a three-game winning streak since losing franchise quarterback Joe Burrow, and that is due, in large part, to the performance of Jake Browning.

When Burrow’s season ended, many fans, understandably, thought the season was effectively over. Browning had made no NFL starts, and fans had little faith.

His first start against the Pittsburgh Steelers was rough, but it has only been up from there.

Since then, Browning has performed at a high level in each of his last three starts, winning all three of them. Browning has made NFL history in the process.

His latest milestone is becoming the only NFL quarterback to ever throw for over 1,000 yards and complete 75% of his passes over his first four starts since they started tracking in 1950. He also led the Bengals to just their fifth win ever when trailing by 14 points entering the fourth quarter.

Browning isn’t just throwing the ball up to the Bengals’ talented receivers, either. He is making throws on the run, going off script, and spreading the ball to multiple receivers per game. Week in and week out, Browning answers the bell and has kept the Bengals right in the thick of the playoff hunt.
