So much for that Ja’Marr Chase vs. Penei Sewell debate for the Cincinnati Bengals.
Sunday during the second half of his team’s game against the Detroit Lions, Chase got out in front of Joe Mixon and threw a huge block that helped spring No. 28 for a touchdown.
This was on a gutsy, creative play call from Zac Taylor on a fourth-and-short attempt by the way, which put the team up 17-0.
And kidding about Chase vs. Sewell aside (Sewell was spending most of the day having a terrible time against Trey Hendrickson), Chase had previously hauled in a 34-yard bomb from Joe Burrow to set up a field goal before the half.
Understandably though, it’s the block here that will be more memorable in hindsight:
Joe to Joe for 6️⃣
