Ja’Marr Chase and Jake Browning make NFL history vs. Jaguars

Good times.

NFL: Cincinnati Bengals at Jacksonville Jaguars Jeremy Reper-USA TODAY Sports

What a game!

The Cincinnati Bengals entered Week 13 as 10-point underdogs and came away with their first Monday Night Football road win since 1990, defeating the Jacksonville Jaguars in overtime, 34-31.

In a game for the ages, quarterback Jake Browning and wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase made NFL history in the process.

Browning finished 32/37 passing for 354 yards and one score, while Chase hauled in 11/12 targets for 149 yards and a touchdown.

It shouldn’t be much of a surprise the Bengals need a historical effort to win this game, as the duo of Browning and Chase looked every bit like what had been done for the past two years with the Burrow/Chase tandem.

According to Jay Morrison, Browning is the first player in NFL history to complete 86% of his passes and throw for 354+ yards within one of his first two NFL starts.

As for Chase, he joined Bengals all-time great A.J. Green as the only players ever with three 1,000-yard seasons to begin their NFL career in franchise history.

Finally, per Eric Moody, Chase is the first player in NFL history to have six games of 10 catches, 100 yards, and a receiving touchdown within his first three seasons.

Good times.
