The battle between the top two NFL draft options for 2020 led to a huge clash in Sunday’s game between the Cincinnati Bengals and the Washington football team.
On her fourth goal from Washington’s 3-yard line, Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow, this year’s best draft pick, climbed to the end zone. Washington Chase Young’s defensive end, the number two best choice, was there to stop him.
The defense is coming BIG 😈

Young didn’t just stop Burrow. He grabbed the Bengal rookie and forced him to make a mess that was as chaotic as the clash between Young and Brow. Initially, the ball was decided to be advanced by Washington, worn again and restored to the final safety zone. However, for holding a penalty from Bengals, Washington accepted the penalty, which canceled the penalty and conditionally gave Cincinnati a chance to play down and kick a goal on the field.
Replay officials concluded that Washington never owned the ball and that the game was ultimately controlled by touchback.
But no matter what happened after the goal, the battle between the best athletes and former teammates from the state of Ohio justified the invoices.
Barrow and Young were in Ohio at the same time before Burrow transferred to LSU. Leading the game on Sunday, Barrow had nothing but praise for the Washington edge.
“One of a kind,”
