Bengals news revolves around Joe Burrow, who mentioned in a press conference that he won’t accept losing. Burrow also appeared on the Full Send podcast and discussed how he enjoys playing the Ravens. 

Joe Burrow showed why he was the first player off the board in the 2020 NFL Draft with his play this past season.

After getting injured midway through his rookie campaign, people wondered how the former Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback at LSU would perform in year 2.

While it took Burrow a bit to readjust to his surgically repaired knee, he eventually found his groove and helped get the team their first AFC North title since 2015. Furthermore, he helped lead the Bengals to their first playoff victory since the early 90s. He was the face of the franchise as the team reached the Super Bowl for the first time since 1988 and naturally, anytime he says anything it’s going to be talked about.

When the Bengals met for practice earlier this week, Burrow spoke to the media for the first time since his squad lost the Super Bowl in February. The quote that stuck with a lot of people following that press conference was “I’m not going to accept losing.”

Burrow also appeared on the Full Send podcast and gave us a lot of quoteworthy things but one of the most fun was him talking about playing the Ravens. Burrow said that he enjoys playing the Baltimore Ravens because they talk a lot of trash.

"I love playing the Ravens. They like to talk. I don’t start the talking but I usually, somebody pokes me, I can talk.”"

Check out what’s trending in Joe Burrow and Bengals news.

Burrow has fully grasped the leadership role in Cincinnati, which was evidenced by the team’s turnaround this past season. They don’t make the Super Bowl without Burrow’s heroic throws.

Moving forward, the rest of the league knows that Burrow can be that same threat we saw during the 2019 season at LSU and he’s put it out there that he won’t accept losing. The rest of the league should be fearful of Joey Franchise as he enters year 3.
