Joe Burrow is a winner through and through. ESPN analyst Cole Cubelic points out that the ex-Ohio State quarterback made history this weekend as the only No. 1 NFL Draft pick to reach the conference championship game in his first 2 seasons.

The former LSU standout was 28-of-37 passing for 348 yards in the Cincinnati Bengals’ 19-16 Divisional Round win over the Tennessee Titans, the AFC’s No. 1 seed in the playoffs.

Burrow’s feat is even more impressive considering he played just 10 games in 2020, his rookie season, after tearing his ACL. This season, Burrow played in 16 games, sitting the season finale to let a different injury heal before the playoffs.

Burrow and the Bengals will learn their AFC Championship opponent Sunday evening. The Kansas City Chiefs host the Buffalo Bills, and the winner will host Cincinnati.
