CINCINNATI (AP) — Joe Burrow threw for a franchise-record 525 yards and four touchdowns, and the Cincinnati Bengals took sole possession of first place in the AFC North with a 41-21 win over the depleted Baltimore Ravens.

Burrow broke Boomer Esiason’s team record of 522 yards, and his total was the fourth-highest in NFL history.

He was 37 of 46 and threw two touchdown passes to Tee Higgins and one each to Tyler Boyd and Joe Mixon.

The Bengals swept the Ravens for the first time since 2015.

Higgins had 12 receptions for a career-high 194 yards.

Josh Johnson started at quarterback for the Ravens with Lamar Jackson injured and backup Tyler Huntley sidelined by COVID-19.
