It looks like the Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver entered the game against the Jacksonville Jaguars with a brutal mindset, claiming he wanted to be disrespectful. Ja’Marr Chase threw in his touchdown celebration even before crossing the goal line by unexpectedly turning toward the opponents’ defenders, who were chasing him hopelessly.

The most interesting part was that it was quarterback Jake Browning who told the media about this, as he was shocked when Chase turned around. When asked, Chase said he intended to be “disrespectful.” Browning threw the pass directed towards wideout Chase, who led it to a 76-yard touchdown catch.

While addressing the media after the game, WR Chase admitted to himself that he entered the game with the mindset of being disrespectful towards the Jaguars. 

I said I was gonna do some asshole shit — excuse my profanity. I was going to be a jerk today…I just felt like being an evil person today.

Chase also mocked the Jaguars’ defense toward him with just a cornerback, thinking he would be able to cover the wide receiver. Believing the Jaguars got what they came for, he said: 

Straight man. No help

Moreover, the quarterback wanted to prove that the Bengals weren’t any less without starting quarterback Joe Burrow. That he proved, playing to the best of his potential, saying:

We still can play Cincinnati football. We showed that today.

Chase finished the game by catching 11 out of his 12 passes for 149 yards and a big touchdown against the Jaguars.

Joe Burrow’s absence didn’t stop the Bengals from showing their contender spirit

The Bengals proved they are contenders, even without Joe Burrow, who is undergoing season-ending surgery to heal his wrist injury. In his absence, quarterback Browing covered for him, who established his first win as a starter QB.

He completed the game with 32 out of his 37 passes for 354 yards, along with a passing touchdown and a rushing touchdown.

With this victory and Browing’s best career performance of 86.5%, the Bengals have ensured their name in the ongoing playoff conversation, standing at 6-6. Browing made the perfect pairing with wideout Chase, who did a remarkable job with 11 receptions for 149 yards and a touchdown.

Even though the Jaguars managed a decent score of 31 until the last quarter, the Bengals easily tied up the score at 31, giving themselves a perfect opportunity to seal the victory, which was made by the hands of Browing and Chase with a 76-yard touchdown pass.
