Burrow was selected by the Bengals with the first pick of the 2020 NFL Draft on April 23.

With the Tigers, Burrow started for two seasons after transferring to LSU from Ohio State.

Burrow led the Tigers last season to its first national championship in 12 years.

Cincinnati had a chance to tie the game in regulation, but the Los Angeles Chargers got a break when Randy Bullock missed a 31-yard field goal that would have tied the game with 7 seconds left, thwarting a last-minute rally by Burrow.
