How Joe Burrow reacted to the first tie of his football career
The good news: Joe Burrow wasn’t on the losing end of his team’s game for the first time this season. The bad news: Burrow’s Cincinnati Bengals remain winless.
Thanks to NFL overtime, Burrow’s record is a starting quarterback is now 0-2-1. In Sunday’s Cincinnati-Philadelphia game, the score remained 23-23 at the end of the 15-minute overtime period, resulting in a tie for the Eagles and Burrow’s Bengals.
As one would expect, Burrow was asked if he had ever been part of a game that ended in a tie. Spoiler alert: Burrow isn’t satisfied with simply not losing.
“No. This is a loss to me. We didn’t win,” Burrow told reporters, per ESPN’s Ben Baby.
Burrow had a strong outing in the tie, going 31-of-44 passing for 312 yards and 2 touchdowns.
The Heisman Trophy winner from LSU will try to get his first NFL win on Oct. 4 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
