This man is the king of Cincinnati. Bengals star signal-caller Joe Burrow may not have gotten off to the perfect start for the 2022 campaign, but goodness, he sure has turned things around.
In the Week 7 win over the Atlanta Falcons, Burrow put on a show, throwing for a mind-blowing 481 yards and three touchdowns. Not only that, but he also added a rushing score.
With that passing showcase, Burrow now has five games to his name with at least 400 yards since going pro. No one has matched his play in their first three campaigns. No one.
Burrow has been sharp in recent weeks and the Bengals now have a 4-3 record following that win against Atlanta. On the season, Burrow has thrown for the second-most yards in the NFL at 2,097. He's third in the league with 15 TDs.
After starting off the season 0-2, the Bengals have won four of their last five games. The big thing for Burrow in these wins has been his ability to take care of the football.
In the season-opening loss to the Steelers, Burrow tossed four interceptions, which no one could believe. He's only tossed one INT since, while throwing for 13 touchdowns. In order for the Bengals to make noise in the postseason this winter, they need Burrow at his best.
He's playing at a high level right now, which fans of course love seeing. We'll see if more magic from Burrow will be on the way come Monday Night Football next week vs. the Browns.
