Pretty good for a guy who ‘can’t catch the ball’

Cincinnati Bengals rookie receiver Ja'Marr Chase made a remarkable catch in the end zone on a 34-yard pass from quarterback and former LSU teammate Joe Burrow to give the Bengals a 14-7 lead late in the first half of Sunday's 24-10 win against the Steelers in Pittsburgh.

Chase has caught at least one touchdown pass in each of his first three National Football League games. He scored his first touchdown of Sunday's game - the fourth of his young career - on a 9-yard grab from Burrow during the third quarter to extend the Bengals' lead to 17 points.

The Bengals led 14-7 at halftime.

"How about that combination? We're gonna see that for quite some time," CBS analyst Nate Burleson said during the halftime show.

"It's great to see Ja'Marr Chase catching the football," analyst and former Bengals great Boomer Esiason added. "The fact that (Joe Burrow) and Ja'Marr Chase can become this dynamic duo moving forward really should make Bengal fans feel great about their future."

The Bengals tweeted after the game that Chase's effort was "pretty good for a guy who 'can't catch the ball.'"
