Kirk Herbstreit has been high on Joe Burrow’s development in the NFL. But the former Heisman Trophy winner had easily the best game of his brief career on Sunday.

The Cincinnati Bengals cruised to a 41-21 win over the Baltimore Ravens to improve to 9-6 on the season. Burrow was electric, throwing for 525 yards, the 4th-highest single-game passing total in NFL history. He added 4 touchdowns as the AFC North-leading Bengals drew closer to clinching their 1st playoff appearance since 2015.

College football fans are more than aware of what Burrow is capable of, as evidenced by his historic season with LSU in 2019. While that doesn’t always translate to the professional level, the 2nd-year pro, who saw a strong rookie campaign cut short due to an ACL injury, is proving that he is the franchise quarterback the Bengals have been looking for. His 4,165 yards are 6th in the NFL, while his 30 passing touchdowns are tied for 7th.

But Herbstreit feels that Burrow’s just getting started, as you can see by the tweet below:

Burrow can take the next step on Jan. 2 as the Bengals host the Kansas City Chiefs at Paul Brown Stadium. Cincinnati needs just 1 win in the final 2 games of the season to clinch the division and its 1st postseason bid in 6 years.
