Sunday’s game between the Cincinnati Bengals and Tennessee Titans looked like a relatively easy win on paper for the Titans. Tennessee was 5-1 and atop the AFC South, while Cincinnati entered the matchup at 1-5-1.

This one belonged to the Bengals, though, as they opened up a 17-7 halftime lead en route to a surprising 31-20 victory at Paul Brown Stadium.

Rookie Joe Burrow had another strong day behind center, and while he was held to under 300 yards, he did throw 2 touchdowns and 0 interceptions as he completed 26 of his 37 passes. The 2019 Heisman Trophy winner and national champion with LSU now has 2,272 yards passing, 190 behind league leader Matt Ryan and just 43 behind Patrick Mahomes for second place.

After the victory, Burrow took to Instagram to celebrate, posting a photo from the game with a hilarious, but timely caption.

It doesn’t get easier for Burrow and the Bengals as they travel to Pittsburgh to take on Ben Roethlisberger and the undefeated Steelers at Heinz Field on Nov. 15. The good news is that they’ll have plenty to time to rest up during a bye week.
