1. Joe Burrow

This should come as a surprise to no one. Joe Burrow needs to play well for the Cincinnati Bengals to win their first-ever Super Bowl.

Now for the crazy part, Burrow has actually not played great during the playoffs. His best game was against the Las Vegas Raiders when he went for two touchdowns and no interceptions. Against the Titans, he was held out of the endzone, and against the Chiefs, he did throw for two touchdowns but he had an interception that could have turned out way worse than it did.

In the biggest game of his life, Burrow needs to have the best professional game of his young career. The good guys have been able to allow their extremely talented defense to win games in the postseason (don’t listen to anyone who tells you the Bengals did not have anything to do with limiting Mahomes) but Cincinnati is going to need to score points in the Super Bowl.

Joey Franchise has his pick of extremely talented skill players and his job will just be to find who is open and get them the ball with a chance to make a big play. Burrow has had moments of complete brilliance in the playoffs, now it is time to have a complete game.
