Joe Burrow: I obviously have to start stronger

Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow is coming off the first four-interception game of his career and he shared a lesson he learned from the experience during his weekly media session on Wednesday.

Burrow said that his turnover-filled performance — he also lost a fumble — in the overtime loss to the Steelers reinforced that he has to “just take what the defense gives me” against the Cowboys this week and against other teams in the weeks to come. Burrow also pointed attention to his work in helping the Bengals come back in the second half of the game when evaluating his overall outing.

“Not my best, obviously would like to take care of the ball better,” Burrow said, via Kelsey Conway of the Cincinnati Enquirer. “But as bad as I played in the first half, I thought I battled in the second half and put us in position to win the game. So I was proud of that, but obviously gotta start stronger.”

Burrow’s history is long enough to see that the turnovers from last Sunday are an outlier and that should provide the Bengals with some confidence that he’ll be back on track when the Bengals return to the field this weekend.

  1. Always going to take a hit to the confidence when your first pass of the regular season is a pick 6. Burrow didn’t play any in the preseason and has been untouched all offseason due to the surgery. He’ll be fine and that OL will get better.

  2. Surely did stink up the first half, but the man didn’t flinch and drove right back down the field and gave them multiple chance to ice that game.

  3. No one blames you for the poor performance, Joe.
    You’re missing an appendix. How could anyone play at top form without their appendix?
    In fact, you should be getting more credit for playing without one.
