Burrow Vows Rebound After Calling Himself Out In Steelers Loss

There was the razor accuracy and dominant pocket presence and the national championship and the Heisman Trophy.

But after his first game as the Bengals franchise quarterback against the franchise they're chasing, after it all went so sour with a wobbly second half of five of 15 for 24 yards in a 36-10 loss to the undefeated Steelers in Pittsburgh in which they didn't convert a third down, he showed why the Bengals drafted him No.

Bengals head coach Zac Taylor didn't let Burrow take all the blame.

It was only the Steelers' second of the game and it was off a gimmick with T.J. Watt stunting inside, but it took the Bengals out of field-goal range.

Yet it was remarkable to listen to Burrow on the postgame Zoom from Heinz Field.

After he hobbled off following two hits and a sack, Taylor let him play that last series even if it was just handing off for running back Trayveon Williams' first five NFL carries.
