Quarterback Joe Burrow won his fourth career FedEx Air Player of the Week award after he set a franchise record for the most passing yards in a single game in Cincinnati’s 41-21 win over the Ravens.

He broke the old record of 499 passing yards by Boomer Esiason in 1990 at the LA Rams.

The second-year QB went 37-of-46 passing for 525 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions.

Burrow received more votes than Dak Prescott of the Dallas Cowboys and Josh Allen of the Buffalo Bills.

Burrow posted career-highs in passing yardage (525), passing TDs (four), passer rating (143.2) and completions (37; tied career-high). Each of those totals led the AFC in Week 16, and his passing yardage total was a team record and the fourth-highest in NFL history.
