The performance also moved Burrow into some lofty company in NFL history.
He joined 5 others as the only QBs in league history to eclipse 450 passing yards with at least 3 passing TDs and 1 rushing TD in a single game.
Joe Burrow is 6th QB ever with 450+ pass yards, 3+ pass TD and 1+ rush TD in game, including playoffs. Others: Jameis Winston (2019), Ben Roethlisberger (2018), Peyton Manning (2004 playoffs), Billy Volek (2004) and Norm Van Blocklin (1951)

During that span, Burrow has thrown 11 touchdown passes and just 1 interception, and he has passed for 781 yards the last 2 weeks.
