The Cincinnati Bengals have a chance to win their first Super Bowl in franchise history when they take on the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl LVI. This is a thrilling moment for anyone who has been a fan of this team.
Overcoming the narratives that the Bengals would a.) not make the playoffs b.) not win the division c.) not beat the Chiefs (round 1) d.) not break the playoff win curse e.) not beat Tennessee on the road f.) not beat the Chiefs (round 2), Cincinnati has proven that they are the best team in the AFC and deserve to be here.
A huge component of their success has been Joe Burrow. If the Bengals are to win on Sunday, Burrow will need to unlock the full potential of his game.
Throughout the playoffs, Burrow has shown guts and determination and has several drives of perfection, but has yet to take over a game start to finish. The Super Bowl is the perfect time to do just that.
Zac Taylor is going to need to put the offense in a position where they are being the aggressors and playing to win, but Joe Burrow is going to need to execute the game plan. Here are two ways that Burrow can elevate the Cincinnati Bengals and help bring home the Lombardi Trophy.
