Joe Burrow has provided a jolt of life for the Cincinnati Bengals in his rookie season, giving fans hope for the future. While the rookie signal-caller prepares to square off with the Washington Football Team, he is focused on getting one in the win column.

Despite being asked to describe how he should be judged in his rookie season outside of wins and losses, Burrow was unfazed in his answer and stubbornly stuck to his guns.

“Wins and losses,” Burrow responded, via Ethan Cadeaux of NBC Sports.

Given the situation he was thrust into, Burrow is having an extremely impressive rookie campaign thus far. The reigning Heisman Trophy winner has completed 65.4 percent of his passes for 2,485 yards, 12 touchdowns, and five interceptions.

However, the Bengals aren’t winning many games, holding a 2-6-1 record entering Week 11. Losing is something that Burrow isn’t used to, having gone undefeated in his final season at LSU in 2019 en route to winning the National Championship.

Nevertheless, there are positive signs for Burrow and the Bengals moving forward. Even though he’s been sacked 32 times this season, which is the second-most in the NFL, Burrow continues to operate Cincinnati’s offense efficiently.

Coming into the season, even with the arrival of Burrow, the Bengals were expected to lose plenty of games. With that being said, Burrow is having a much better season than some people expected him to have.

On the other hand, Burrow holds himself to high standards, saying that he hasn’t been successful just yet due to Cincinnati’s shortage of wins this season.
