Joe Burrow had hilarious way of leaking QB news to backup

Joe Burrow on the field

The Cincinnati Bengals have clinched the AFC North, and are opting not to risk quarterback Joe Burrow in Sunday’s regular season finale in Cleveland. That means Brandon Allen is the next man up, and the backup quarterback had a pretty funny way of finding that out.

Allen learned on Tuesday that he would be starting in Week 18. He did not find out directly from coach Zac Taylor, or even from a media report. The word came from Burrow himself, who texted his backup and had a hilarious way of passing on the news.

Not a bad way to find out you’re starting an NFL game, to be honest. Burrow probably enjoyed beating his coach to the punch as well.

It’s no secret that Burrow has a sense of humor. He’s also quarterbacking a playoff team, so he has to be in a pretty good mood these days. That’s especially true if he’s having this much fun with his backup.
