Joe Burrow feels like he’s back to his pre-injury form
As the Cincinnati Bengals prep for a Week 16 showdown against the Baltimore Ravens, Joe Burrow spoke to the media on Wednesday afternoon. One of the biggest takeaways from his media session is that Burrow feels like he’s in pre-injury form.
When asked if he’s playing the best ball of 2021, Burrow said he was comfortable and is back to pre-injury form when it comes to movement in the pocket. This has shown throughout the season too, as Burrow seemed skittish early in the season but has looked the part of the No. 1 overall pick in recent months.
This weekend’s game against the Ravens is a big one for Cincinnati, as the stripes have a solid chance to win the division with a win over Baltimore. They’d own both head-to-head matchups against them and would have nine wins compared to the Ravens’ eight wins.
Burrow recognizes how big this game is and he knows what’s at stake.
Fortunately, Burrow and the rest of his squad know they can beat the Ravens, as they blew the doors off the birds earlier in the season. The Bengals signal-caller discussed that during his media session, noting that the team realizes what they can be.
Joe Burrow is ready to take on the Ravens
A few weeks ago, Burrow injured his pinky finger on his throwing hand and while he’s played in two games since then, he’s still fielding questions about it. This week, he mentioned that the pinky is still an issue and he’ll have a decision to make on whether or not to have surgery this offseason.
Burrow hasn’t put up huge numbers in recent weeks but the Bengals are still in a prime position to win the division and make the playoffs for the first time since the 2015 season. Injured pinky or not, Burrow is the reason Cincinnati is sitting pretty as of now.
Hopefully, he can have a big game and propel his team to victory this weekend.
