Joe Burrow's strong start puts him in a class with Dan Marino
Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow’s impact on the NFL this season continues to grow. His latest accomplishment is historic.
The former LSU quarterback is being mentioned alongside all-time great quarterback Dan Marino, who is widely considered one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL after his career with the Miami Dolphins. Burrow has 3 touchdowns on Sunday as the Bengals are up big over the Detroit Lions late in the fourth quarter. He has thrown for 271 yards with about 2 minutes remaining, on 19-for-29 passing.
As the tweet below points out, FOX Sports analyst Daryl Johnston complimented former LSU receiver Ja’Marr Chase, who is a frequent target for Burrow.

So far this season, Burrow has shown no ill effects from the knee injury that ended his 2020 season prematurely. He was the No. 1 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.
