Bengals BYE week questions

3. How to limit Joe Burrow’s interception woes? 

Joe Burrow leads the league in interceptions currently, although he has had problems throwing interceptions this season, especially as of late, throwing at least one pick in five straight games. However, I don’t think this is any cause for concern because so far in Burrow’s young career. He has 33 total touchdown passes and 16 interceptions, so he’s still on the positive side of the spectrum.

I feel he often forces passes to Ja’Marr Chase, and a lot of times, they result in tight windows and tip passes that get picked off. Burrow needs to do a better job spreading the wealth, especially with Tyler Boyd, as I already discussed.

If the Bengals can get all of their weapons involved, Chase will open up more space to find his spots and keep defenses on their heels. The Bengals have a very predictable offense currently, and that could be one of the critical issues these turnovers are happening at such a rapid rate.

Burrow will miss throws and make mistakes at times because he is still a very young signal-caller, and those things happen, but it shouldn’t be happening consistently game after game. This will be a critical question for the Bengals to answer during practice and in the film and meeting rooms this week.
