Joe Burrow is here, and he has put the Cincinnati Bengals in a position to go from worst to first this season in the AFC North.
Burrow and the Bengal family dismantled the Baltimore Raven on Sunday, and Burrow had a day’s work in the process.
In addition to Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott who played after a foot injury cost him most of the 2020 season, Burrow played even better than a season after tearing the ACL net.
Prescott plays against Washington on Sunday Night Football, but he has stumbled in recent weeks, scoring just five points and five interceptions in his last five games.
Dallas will win weak NFC East, but Burrow brought Bengals in position to win the Northern AFC with wins over the Denver Broncos and Ravens over the past two weeks.
This season, Burrow has thrown for 30 touchdowns, 14 interceptions and more than 4,000 metres. Going into week 16, Prescott had thrown 25 points, 10 picks and 3,598 yards.
While Prescott’s stats were similar, he didn’t lead the change the way Burrow had. The Bengals are one of the late thinkers in the AFC North entering this year, but with a healthy Burrow, they have a shot to make some noise in the AFC.
Prescott is off to a hot start and is ending cold, and with Burrow having a big day in his career with a big win, he’ll be favored for Returning Player of the Year as the NFL enters its final two weeks. Of the season.
