NFL Hall of Fame quarterback Brett Favre joins 'Fox and Friends Weekend.'
Burrow had thrown what he thought was a touchdown pass to A.J. Green to put Cincinnati ahead with 11 seconds remaining in the game. However, Green was called for offensive pass interference which set up a potential game-tying field goal from Reggie Bullock.
Bullock missed the 31-yard field-goal attempt wide right and came up limping afterward. The Chargers won the game, 16-13, and Burrow’s first game of his career was a devastating loss.
Burrow scored his first touchdown on a 23-yard gallop in the first quarter.
From there, the LSU product was 23-for-36 with 193 passing yards and an interception. He had 46 rushing yards on eight carries.
Tyrod Taylor led the Chargers with 208 passing yards but he didn’t throw a touchdown pass either. Joshua Kelley ran for the lone touchdown for the Chargers.
Cincinnati is now on a two-game losing streak in opening week games. The team is now 2-15 in their last 17 games dating back to last season.
Burrow was the team’s No. 1 pick and had a solid debut. He and the Bengals can only go up from here.
