The Cincinnati Bengals drafted quarterback Joe Burrow No. 1 overall in the 2020 NL Draft, so they expected him to be good. The former LSU Tiger was excellent out of the gate as a rookie before suffering a devastating knee injury in Week 10 last year. Now, Burrow is back for year two and looking just as good. That’s not just anecdotal either. The opening performances of Burrow’s sophomore campaign are better than Peyton Manning, better than Kurt Warner, and only equaled by the iconic Dan Marino.
Dan Marino is an all-time great NFL quarterback
There have been 12 seasons of over 5,000 passing yards in NFL history.

Unlike Joe Burrow, Dan Marino didn’t go No. 1 overall in the 1983 draft. He didn’t go in the top 10 and he wasn’t the top quarterback drafted. Or even the fifth.
In the legendary 1983 NFL draft, Marino was one of six QBs drafted in the first round and one of seven Pro Football Hall of Famers. The passers picked before the Miami Dolphins took the Pittsburgh signal-caller No. 27 overall were John Elway (Baltimore Colts, No.1), Todd Blackledge (Kansas City Chiefs No. 7), Jim Kelly (Buffalo Bills, No. 14), Tony Eason (New England Patriots (No. 15), and Ken O’Brien (New York Jets, No. 24).
In addition to Elway, Kelly, and Marino ending up in Canton, that first round also featured HOF players Eric Dickerson (Los Angeles Rams, No.2), Jim Covert (Chicago Bears, No. 6), Bruce Matthews (Houston Oilers, No. 9), and Darrell Green (Washington, No. 28).
After a solid rookie season starting nine games and throwing 20 touchdowns to just six interceptions, Marino was the no-doubt Dolphins starter headed into year two.
He didn’t disappoint.
In his second of 17 NFL seasons, Marino threw for 5,084 yards and 48 touchdowns, both numbers which led the league. He also led the NFL in 1984 in attempts (564), completions (362), yards per attempt (9.0), yards per game (317.8), Quarterback Rating (108.9), and several other statistical categories.
The team finished 14-2 and Marino made the Pro Bowl, was a first-team All-Pro, and won the NFL MVP Award. He also reached his only Super Bowl that season, losing to the San Francisco 49ers 38-16.
Joe Burrow just joined Dan Marino in an exclusive club, surpassing Peyton Manning and Kurt Warner
Joe Burrow has 2 pass TD today, including a 70-yard TD pass to Ja’Marr Chase in the 2nd quarter (longest pass of his NFL career)

In Dan Marino’s all-time great second season, the QB got off to a hot start and never slowed down. In 2021, the Cincinnati Bengals’ Joe Burrow is putting up similar numbers.
