Joe Burrow Syndication: The Enquirer

Heading into Sunday night’s game against the Buffalo Bills, Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins had not had a single 100-yard game this entire season. But that changed on Sunday night.

During the game, Higgins had eight catches for 110 yards – a season-best in both categories. And Joe Burrow made it clear that he certainly wasn’t shy about getting the ball into the hands of his receiver.

“I told Tee coming into the game — he was feeling good — so I was going to feed him the ball today, and he came up big for us,” Burrow said. “He’s going to continue to do that — he always does. I have a lot of faith in that guy.”

Burrow indicated that the big game from Higgins was in part because of the way the Bills chose to cover fellow star wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase. It allowed more one-on-one matchups for Higgins, and he made them pay.

“We were able to get some,” Burrow said. “When they were playing man, they were shading the safety over to Ja’Marr [Chase], so Tee had to step up, and he did.”

Higgins and Chase have emerged as one of the top wide receiver combinations in the NFL over the past few seasons, and it was easy to see why on Sunday night.
