Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow was instrumental in Cincinnati’s win over Jacksonville last Thursday. Now nearly a week later, he’s been rewarded for his performance.
The second-year QB has been named AFC offensive player of the week.
Though the Bengals were down 14-0 at halftime, Burrow and Cincinnati’s offense put together a strong comeback in the second half. Burrow finished the game 25-of-32 passing for 348 yards with a pair of touchdowns. His second-and-13 completion to tight end C. J. Uzomah helped get the Bengals in position for Evan McPherson’s 35-yard field goal as time expired.
It’s the first time Burrow has been named AFC offensive player of the week in his career.
At 3-1, the Bengals will try to keep their good vibes rolling on Sunday against the Packers.
