Joe Burrow feels the heartbreak as Bengals debut goes awry in final minute vs. Chargersby Ryan Gaydos
Joe Burrow’s debut with the Cincinnati Bengals was met with heartbreak at the end of the game against the Los Angeles Chargers.
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.
