Ja'Marr Chase Wins The Pepsi Zero Rookie Of The Week For Week 1


The NFL announced that Bengals rookie wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase earned Pepsi's Zero Sugar Rookie of the Week for Week 1.

Chase began his Bengals career in style, with five catches for 101 yards and a touchdown in his NFL debut. His first two catches converted third downs to keep alive what became a Bengals scoring drive, and then his third reception was a 50-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Joe Burrow to give the Bengals the lead just before halftime.

The 50-yard touchdown went down as the longest score of any kind by a Bengals rookie in their NFL debut and in doing so he became the third-youngest Bengal ever to score a touchdown.
