In the words of Burrow, "I thought he couldn't catch anything?" Burrow sat down at the podium after Ja'Marr Chase in Sunday's postgame press conference and referenced everyone's overreaction to Chase's drops from the preseason. Those concerns certainly didn't show up on Sunday as Chase saw seven targets and reeled in five of them for 101 yards and a score. He was targeted deep downfield with a 16.3 ADOT and had a 153.3 QB Rating when targeted. He looked every bit of the generational talent he was billed and hyped up to be coming out of LSU and he's off to a much hotter start than everyone anticipated. Moving forward, Chase is back in the low-end WR2/high-end WR3 conversation and he should have another solid performance here against the Bears pass defense that got torched by Rams receivers multiple times for deep touchdowns.
