CLEVELAND (AP) — Joe Burrow got a workout in his second NFL start. Cincinnati’s rookie quarterback threw three touchdown passes and attempted the second-most passes ever for a rookie in the Bengals’ 35-30 loss to the Cleveland Browns.
The No. 1 overall pick in this year’s draft completed 37 of 61 passes for 316 yards, and made a few dazzling plays that lit up social media, including a tweet from NBA star and fellow Ohioan LeBron James.
But Burrow, who led LSU to a national championship last year after transferring from Ohio State, wasn’t interested in any outside praise.
