Speaking to correspondent Ben Baby, Burrow mentioned the chain of events during the last snap of the Super Bowl between the Bengals and the Rams.

He said, “I was anticipating throwing it, I just didn’t quite have the time…”

Burrow was swung wildly by Aaron Donald and he ended up passing to Samaje Perine, which turned out to be incomplete. If Burrow had made the pass to Chase, it may very well have been a different outcome for the Bengals
