NFL: Great moment for Bengals quarterback

37 of 46 passes brought Burrow against the division rivals, who had to do without the regular quarterbacks Lamar Jackson and Tyler Huntley, to the man. Wide receiver Tee Higgins caught twelve passes for 194 yards and two touchdowns. Only three quarterbacks threw further than Burrow in a game.

Matt Schaub scored two yards more than the Bengals playmaker in 2012, as did Warren Moon in 1990. However, the record holder is Norm Van Brocklin, who even came to 554 yards in a game for the Los Angeles Rams in 1951. An alleged 32-yard touchdown by Burrow on Tyler Boyd shortly before the end was withdrawn after the referees had studied video, otherwise Burrow would have snapped Van Brocklin’s all-time record.

For the Bengals, rookie Ja’Marr Chase had another 125 receiving yards and running back Joe Mixon came in the running and passing game on 135 yards and two touchdowns. With the win, the Bengals regained first place in the AFC North with two laps to go. “I don’t know if I’ve thrown that many yards before,” said Burrow, dressed in a “SpongeBob SquarePants” Christmas sweater after the match. “Maybe in high school. The only thing that matters to me is to do what it takes to win a game. That was just 525 yards to throw today and play smart. “

Bradys Bucs und Rams im Play-off

In addition to the highlight of Burrow and the Bengals, the 16th matchday was extremely satisfactory for two other teams. After the unplanned 9-0 loss to the New Orleans Saints the previous week, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers returned to star quarterback Tom Brady. With the 32: 6 at the Panthers, the champions moved into the play-offs.

Just like the Los Angeles Rams after a 30:23 away win at the Minnesota Vikings in NFC West. With the defeat of Minnesota, the Arizona Cardinals secured an early place in the fight for the Superbowl, despite their 16:22 defeat against Indianapolis on Saturday.

In the battle for first place in the AFC East, however, the New England Patriots were defeated by the Buffalo Bills 21:33. The Los Angeles Chargers also suffered an unexpected setback in the play-off race with a 29:41 away defeat at the Houston Texans.

Rodgers breaks Favre’s Packers record

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers overtook legendary Brett Favre on Saturday and now holds the Green Bay Packers’ touchdown record. In the 24:22 win over the Cleveland Browns on Christmas Day, Rodgers posted three touchdown passes and now comes to a total of 445 – three more than Favre, whose substitute Rodgers was at the beginning of his career.

After the record touchdown, Favre played a video congratulation to his successor at Lambeau Field: “I have a request. Get us another Super Bowl. Congratulation.”

Cheers from the Green Bay Packers

At the Packers everything is currently going according to plan

The Packers have already been confirmed as division winners and are well on their way to starting the play-off as the top-ranked team. That would guarantee them a bye and home right until the conference finals. The Packers had lost it in the past two seasons, which nearly ended Rodgers’ time at the club in the summer. The 38-year-old celebrated his only Super Bowl victory to date in 2010.
