Joe Burrow believes COVID-19 totals are low among Bengalis partly due to Cincinnati’s lack of nightlife

CINCINNATI – Entering a small market might not be so bad after all.

Cincinnati Bengals midfielder Joe Burrow says having limited nightlife options in the city has helped the team reduce the number of COVID-19 cases as positive tests have increased around the NFL in recent weeks.

“Fortunately, there’s not much to do in Cincinnati,” Burrow said Wednesday. “Nobody goes out to clubs and bars and gets COVID every weekend. But we’ve been healthy.”

Bengals (8-6) currently have only one player on the bench / COVID-19 – corner kick Chidobe Awuzie.

Throughout the season, the Bengals have been careful with players showing signs of illness, keeping them on hold for precautionary reasons. The NFL sent out a league-wide memo last week announcing stricter COVID-19 protocols as cases spike and cause logistical problems.

The Cleveland Browns had their game against Las Vegas Raiders moved from Saturday to Monday and two other games in Week 15 – Seattle Seahawks Football TeamLos Angeles Rams and WashingtonPhiladelphia Eagles – has been postponed from Sunday to Tuesday.

“We’re still a healthy team, which not many people can say at this point in the season,” Burrow said. “We were lucky because of the injury and COVID.”

Team Bengal is tied for the AFC North lead with Baltimore Raven (8-6), and they’ll be playing this weekend in Cincinnati. A win for the Bengals will help them wipe out the Ravens net this season.

Local officials lack attractions in downtown Cincinnati.

Over the last decade or so, the area between the Bengals’ Paul Brown Stadium and the great Cincinnati Reds American Football Park known as “The Banks” has experienced significant development. In March, the city designated the area between both stadiums where alcohol kegs were allowed to open on the street. The Andrew J. Brady Music Center, which adjoins Paul Brown Stadium, also opened this year.
