Bengals lose to Dolphins, clinch top pick in draft

The Bungle for Burrow is complete.

The Cincinnati Bengals dropped a 38-35 overtime decision to the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, clinching the first pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

With that pick, most expect the Bengals (1-14) to select LSU quarterback Joe Burrow, an Ohio native who won the Heisman Trophy last week. Burrow has passed for 4,715 yards and 48 touchdowns while completing 77.9 percent of his passes for the top-ranked Tigers.

The Dolphins improved to 4-11.

An Ohio native and former Ohio State Buckeye, Burrow has completed 77.9% of his passes for 4,715 yards with 48 touchdowns and six interceptions this season.

The Bengals last had the top overall pick in 2003 when they selected quarterback Carson Palmer.
