3 Cincinnati Bengals the Atlanta Falcons must slow down in week 7
By Nick Halden
1. Joe Burrow
Perhaps due to Josh Allen and Patrick Mahomes just how great Burrow has been since week one is going overlooked. In week one Burrow threw four interceptions and the Bengals lost to the Steelers to open the season in ugly fashion.
Since that time Burrow has thrown 10-touchdowns and 1-interception throwing for well over 1,200-yards and wiping away the bad memories from game one. Burrow lacks one clear elite skill set he doesn’t have the best arm or wheels in the league, however, he does everything at a high level and picks his spots to make plays with his legs or force the ball down the field perfectly.
Outside of Tom Brady, he is easily the toughest quarterback Atlanta has faced thus far and will give the secondary the biggest challenge of the season.
As special as Burrow is, however, he does have a history of turning the ball over and struggling against subpar teams at times. Atlanta’s path to victory facing Burrow is certainly very difficult but far from impossible.
