While he might still be new to the league, Joe Burrow is already considered one of the elite quarterbacks in the NFL. He was drafted as the first overall pick in the 2020 NFL draft by the Cincinnati Bengals, and in his first season, he broke multiple records and made a strong impact on the league.

While no injury was reported after the game, Burrow did seem to irritate his wrist playing against the Chiefs so it’s possible he opted out of the game to rest up.
