Saints social media reactions to Joe Burrow’s Thursday Night Football debut

The former Tiger didn’t disappoint, but his team did.

NFL: Cincinnati Bengals at Cleveland Browns Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

Week 2 of the NFL season is officially underway with the second Thursday Night Football game of the season last night. This time, it was the Battle for Ohio, with number one overall pick Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals facing off against former number one overall pick Baker Mayfield and the Cleveland Browns.

Burrow, the former quarterback of the LSU Tigers, obviously garnered a lot of attention out of the Who Dat Nation, with many Saints fans having overlapping fandom of the LSU Tigers in the SEC. With all eyes on Burrow, he didn’t disappoint, throwing for 316 yards and 3 touchdowns, outperforming Mayfield’s 219 passing yards with two touchdowns and an interception. Still, it wasn’t enough for Burrow’s Bengals, as the Bengals fell 35-30, dropping to 0-2, with Burrow still looking for his first NFL win.
