Tagovailoa, Waddle Set For Rematch With Joe Burrow And Ja’Marr Chase
Thursday, the undefeated Miami Dolphins will square off against the Cincinnati Bengals on the banks of the Ohio River. The game is being deemed a rematch of the legendary 2019 showdown between Tua Tagovailoa and Joe Burrrow here in Tuscaloosa just three years ago, with highlights of that years game getting posted all across social media.
Burrow and his Bengal teammate Ja'Marr Chase came away victorious on that November afternoon, with LSU knocking off Alabama by a score of 46-41 en route to its first ever College Football Playoff national title.
Now, Tagovailoa and fellow Dolphin teammate Jaylen Waddle have a chance to re-write the script up in Ohio. Although the former Crimson Tide stars split their college series against Burrow and company, the only game that seems to gain mention in the media is the 2019 edition, as one account pointed out.
With Thursday night's primetime matchup, comes a chance for redemption for the Bama boys with a 4-0 record on the line. As for Cincinnati, it's pretty much must-win time at home if the Bengals want to be taken seriously as a Super Bowl contender yet again.
Cincinnati got off to an abysmal 0-2 start following its Super Bowl loss to the Rams, with a win over the New York Jets last week helping finally right the ship.
Now, it's the Bengals and the Dolphins on Thursday Night Football from Cincinnati.
Buckle up folks, this one's sure to be good.
