The 2023 NFL season started off slow for Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals. But after posting a 1-3 record through the first four games, they have now won four in a row, and are in as good a position as anyone of knocking the Ravens out of the top spot in the AFC North. The team is currently enduring one of the toughest parts of their schedule, but the cool hand of their quarterback helped them pick up crucial victories in Weeks 8 and 9.

Perhaps the most impressive victory of the season came against the 49ers a couple of weeks ago. Burrow and company hit the road to play against one of the league’s top teams, and came out with a 14-point win over Kyle Shanahan’s squad. They were home the next week, and were featured on Sunday Night Football as the Buffalo Bills came to town for a big AFC showdown.
Joe Burrow was the star again. He threw for 348 yards on the night with two touchdowns and no interceptions, and the Bengals held on to win 24-18 despite a late comeback attempt by Buffalo. His counterpart, Bills quarterback Josh Allen, has 258 yards and threw a touchdown and an interception.
It was just the second time that Burrow went up against Allen since he was drafted in 2020, with the first meeting being Cincinnati’s win in the Divisional Round of last year’s playoffs. It makes Burrow 2-0 against Allen in his career, a good start for what will likely be a matchup of many meetings down the road.
