Joe Burrow had a 2021-22 NFL season for the ages this year. Not only did he firmly cement himself as one of the league’s premiere passers on an individual level, but he also guided his Cincinnati Bengals into the Super Bowl.
In doing what he did last season, Burrow established the Bengals as a team to watch going forward. In an already perpetually-competitive AFC North, they are now just one more squad that needs to be accounted for.
This week, during an interview with the Full Send Podcast, Burrow delved into a number of topics.
Perhaps the most interesting was the one NFL team he absolutely loves to beat up on:
Man no wonder he shreds the Ravens

“I love playing the Ravens. They like to talk,” Burrow said. “I don’t start the talking, but if somebody pokes me, I can talk a little.”
Since beating Burrow once during his rookie campaign, the Ravens have yet to record a victory over him. He beat them 41-17 last October and then 41-21 last December.
Baltimore can be an intimidating squad sometimes, but clearly Burrow isn’t shook.
Which makes sense, because they don’t build them any tougher than Joe Shiesty, aka Joe Cool, aka Joey Franchise, aka Joe Brrr, aka Smokin’ Joe, aka Jackpot Joey.
Will he keep his winning streak alive against the Ravens in 2022-23? Match-ups are on the books for Week 5 and Week 18.
It’s not all bad news for Luka Doncic. https://t.co/zCDuyZHyzN

One way or another, an answer will emerge at that point.
