Burrow threw a pair of touchdown passes to Tee Higgins in settlement and Wentz dove into the end zone for the tie in the final minute as the Cincinnati Bengals and Philadelphia Eagles played in a draw 23 -23 Sunday.

Jake Elliott of Philadelphia lined up for a 59-yard field goal with 19 seconds left in overtime, but a false start from Matt Pryor forced the Eagles to break free and play for the tie.

Both teams are 0-2-1.

Facing a 0-3 start for the first time since 1999, Wentz led the Eagles 75 yards in the final three minutes. He hit 9 yards on the third and 6 to the Bengals 19, then came in from 7 with a head first dive into the end zone. Elliott’s extra point tied him with 21 seconds remaining.

Neither team could do anything in overtime.

Burrow, a Heisman Trophy winner and first overall pick, calmly chose high school in the second period, completing 31 of 44 for 312 yards. He’s still looking for his first win since leading LSU to the national championship in January.

Wentz struggled again, throwing two more interceptions.

The Bengals took a 17-16 lead in their first practice of the third quarter. Burrow completed his seven passes for 78 yards, including a pair of third conversions. He finished with a 4-yard pass to Higgins for a 17-16 lead.
