QB Joe Burrow on Las Vegas Raiders

Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow spent his bye week self-scouting his performance in the first half of the season and got away from football to relax. For Burrow and the Bengals, the bye came at the perfect time.

Prior to the bye, Cincinnati dropped two games after starting the season 5-2. By losing to the New York Jets and Cleveland Browns, the Bengals (5-4) went from being a No. 1 seed in the AFC at one point to now on the bubble to make the postseason.

Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow (9) walks for the locker room after the fourth quarter of the NFL Week 9 game between the Cincinnati Bengals and the Cleveland Browns at Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati on Sunday, Nov. 7, 2021. Cleveland kept a halftime lead to clinch a 41-16 win over the Bengals.

The chase for the playoffs starts this weekend for the Bengals in Las Vegas (5-4) and it’s in the category of a  must-win game for Cincinnati. If the Bengals want to be playing football in middle of January, it’s Burrow who will be at the forefront of making it happen. And while he knows it, he’s not putting any more stress on the upcoming game than he does any other week, it’s not how he’s wired.
