Joe Burrow gives funny reason for Bengals not being hit hard by COVID
Several NFL teams have seen an increase in COVID-19 cases over the past few weeks, but the Cincinnati Bengals have not had a major impact. Joe Burrow thinks it may be easier for him and his teammates to avoid contracting the virus than some other players.
Burrow told reporters on Wednesday that the Bengals have been doing well with their COVID protocols. He also joked (but maybe not) that it is easier to avoid catching COVID with how little nightlife there is in Cincinnati.

The man has a point.
Several games have been postponed due to COVID, and the same could happen again this week. The NFL recently made a major change to its testing policy that might impact the availability of some players.
