Top picks Burrow, Stafford take different Super Bowl paths


AP Pro Football Writer

Stafford and Burrow will be the 10th and 11 quarterbacks among the 26 taken with the top pick in the common draft era to start in the Super Bowl. The only other time No. 1 pick QBs squared off in the Super Bowl came six years ago when Peyton Manning beat Cam Newton.
