Stop me if you have heard this before but Joe Burrow and Ja’Marr Chase made history as they led the Cincinnati Bengals to another victory. The former LSU Tigers duo helped win the 2019 College Football Playoff national championship and two years later have a shot at another trophy.
The Bengals went into Nashville, Tennessee, hoping to take down the No. 1 seeded Titans on Saturday afternoon. They got their opportunity after Eli Apple picked off Ryan Tannehill late in the fourth quarter. One pass from Burrow to Chase and the Bengals were in business once again.
They lined up their rookie kicker for a shot to send Cincinnati to the AFC title game against the winner of Kansas City and Buffalo.
Money. Mac. Shooter. McPherson. Legend.

With that 52-yard conversion, Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals move on. During this game, both former LSU Tigers made NFL history. Burrow became the first No. 1 overall pick in the NFL draft to lead his team to a conference championship in his first two seasons according to Cole Cubelic.

While Burrow made history for reaching the title game, Chase made history for his second-straight 100-yard performance in the postseason. After posting a nine reception, 116 yard game against the Las Vegas Raiders, he did it again. While facing the Titans, Chase posted a five reception game that went for 109 yards.
The only rookie in @NFL history to record multiple 100-yard receiving games in a single postseason.
