This Joe Burrow statistic should get Bengals fans excited for the playoffs

Joe Burrow, the dynamic quarterback of the Cincinnati Bengals, leads a talented young team of players. Bengals fans should feel happy.

Joe Burrow excels at football.

That’s pretty well known. The Cincinnati Bengals quarterback was dominant as he led LSU Tigers to their senior season in 2019, which saw him win the Heisman Trophy, and lead LSU to the national championship game.

The Bengals drafted him because of his ability to throw the ball well and win a lot. Burrow’s first year in the NFL wasn’t great, but his second season is a great reminder of why Cincinnati drafted him.

Now, heading into the NFL Playoffs for the first time in Burrow’s career, it’s a great time to be reminded of how Burrow performs in big games.

Sure does look like he’s pretty good when he’s needed to be pretty good.

Cincinnati Bengals: Joe Burrow’s success as the Bengals enter postseason play will be a challenge for Joe.

That’s a cherry-picked group of games that is somewhat arbitrarily defined. You can do what you like with this information. Burrow is still a phenomenal athlete and a dominant quarterback. He’s become a force to be reckoned with and what he’s done this season should be acknowledged and respected more.

Burrow’s injury against the Kansas City Chiefs was a setback for the Bengals. Burrow made sure to sit out for Cincinnati’s regular-season finale so that he could rest up for the playoffs, which is the right move for him to make.

Although Burrow is young and impressive, his injury history can be concerning. It’s good that the young quarterback is taking care of his body as the Bengals start preparing for games that matter considerably more than what he’s played in so far this season.
