Joe Burrow is 25 and complaining about still getting zits

Joe Burrow points to his face

Joe Burrow may have come out on the losing end of the Super Bowl on Sunday, but he is coming out ahead regarding all the videos of him being released.

Fans loved seeing the video of Burrow introducing himself by name to some of the Los Angeles Rams’ defensive players. Another video clip of him mic’d up went viral. This one shows the Cincinnati Bengals quarterback complaining about waking up Super Bowl Sunday to find a zit on his face.

When punter Kevin Huber humorously asked Burrow if the young quarterback was on a first date, Burrow had a funny response. He said he was 25 years old and tired of still getting zits.

For anyone who is beyond college and still getting zits, we know your pain, Joe. What’s more annoying than that?

Burrow had some jitters early but ended up playing a decent game as his Bengals lost 23-20 to the Rams. And nobody noticed Burrow’s zit, either.

Funny video of Joe Burrow talking to Rams defenders goes viral

This year’s Super Bowl left Joe Burrow with a bad taste in his mouth. But it definitely wasn’t all negative for him that day.

A funny video of the Cincinnati Bengals quarterback went viral Wednesday after being posted by NFL Game Day All-Access. In the clip, which was from the Super Bowl, Burrow went over to introduce himself to a few Los Angeles Rams defenders while they were on the field together, namely, Von Miller, Aaron Donald, and Eric Weddle. He hilariously led by saying, “I’m Joe.”

Check it out.

Miller, who shook Burrow’s hand, and Weddle, who complimented Burrow on the season that he was having, definitely passed the vibe check. But it seemed like Donald was all business as he did not pay Burrow any mind.

In any case, Burrow won over a lot of fans this season, both with his play and with his personality. Now this latest video makes the former No. 1 overall pick even easier to root for.

Bengals coach shares details of injury Joe Burrow played through

Joe Burrow injury

Joe Burrow suffered what appeared to be a very painful injury during the Super Bowl on Sunday, and Cincinnati Bengals coach Zac Taylor has confirmed that it was fairly serious.

Taylor told reporters on Wednesday that Burrow was diagnosed with a sprained MCL after Cincinnati’s 23-20 loss to the Los Angeles Rams. The injury was actually a re-aggravation of one Burrow suffered in December.

Taylor also confirmed a report from Tuesday, which is that Burrow will not need surgery.

Burrow appeared to be in serious pain after he was sacked by Von Miller in the second half of Super Bowl LVI. He immediately clutched at his right knee before limping off the field. The star quarterback refused medical attention on the sideline.

Burrow, who suffered a torn ACL in his other knee last year, was seen limping when he left the stadium. He downplayed the injury after the game.

The Bengals desperately need to improve their offensive line this offseason. Burrow was sacked seven times in the Super Bowl and a whopping 19 times in the postseason. Taylor noted on Wednesday that the unit was good enough to get the Bengals to the Super Bowl, but he admitted the team has to do a better job in that area.

Joe Burrow suffered a knee injury during the Super Bowl on Sunday, but fortunately it does not sound like it was anything serious.

Burrow appeared to be in significant pain after he was sacked by Von Miller in Cincinnati’s 23-20 loss to the Los Angeles Rams. He immediately clutched at his right knee before getting to his feet and limping off the field. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, Burrow has since been diagnosed with a sprain. The star quarterback is not expected to need surgery.

Look: Ja’Marr Chase was wide open on Bengals’ final play of Super Bowl

JaMarr Chase was wide open in the Super Bowl

The Cincinnati Bengals were unable to make the play they needed late in their Super Bowl loss to the Los Angeles Rams, but the outcome of the game may have been completely different if Joe Burrow had an extra second to throw on the final play.

The Bengals turned the ball over on downs with less than a minute remaining when Burrow was unable to complete a short pass to Semaje Perine. Burrow, who was sacked seven times in the game, had to rush the throw. If Cincinnati’s offensive line were able to protect Burrow, he may have seen that Rams cornerback Jalen Ramsey fell down and Ja’Marr Chase was running free down the sideline.

Ouch.

It’s no surprise that Burrow had to rush the throw. The Bengals will have to address their offensive line issues in the coming months, as their star quarterback was sacked 19 times during the postseason. It’s tough to win games when your QB is getting hit that much.

Of course, playcalling was also a major issue on the Bengals’ final drive. Head coach Zac Taylor faced a great deal of criticism for one particular call toward the end of the game.

Joe Burrow shares message after Bengals fall in Super Bowl

Joe Burrow on the field

Joe Burrow took some time to address the people after his team came up short in the Super Bowl this year.

Following the Cincinnati Bengals’ 23-20 loss to the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl LVI, Burrow shared a message on Twitter.

“Sorry we couldn’t get it done,” Burrow wrote. “Proud of our team and our fans. Love these guys.”

Burrow doesn’t have much to hang his head about. He went 22-of-33 in the Super Bowl for 263 yards and a touchdown, putting the team in a position to win before the Rams’ final drive. Though Burrow was sacked a whopping seven times, the Rams’ robust pass rush gave opponents fits all season.

The 25-year-old Burrow also displayed plenty of grit during the game and can now look ahead to a 2022 campaign where the Bengals should once again be a favorite in the AFC.

Joe Burrow downplays knee injury despite noticeable limp

Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow did not look healthy following Sunday’s Super Bowl LVI loss, but he refused to make a big deal out of it.

Burrow suffered an apparent injury to his right knee on a fourth quarter sack, but did not miss any time and never came out of the game. He told the media following the loss that there was no way he was coming out, but conceded that he would get the knee checked out upon returning to Cincinnati.

Even after the game, Burrow was clearly in some pain. The Bengals quarterback could be seen limping while exiting the stadium.

There was obvious concern for Burrow given how much pain he looked to be in after the hit. Considering how much he got hit during the game, being in a lot of pain is probably expected.

Joe Burrow’s difficult Super Bowl summed up by one key stat

Joe Burrow on the field

Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow had a tough time staying on his feet during Super Bowl LVI, and one key stat bears that out.

Burrow was sacked seven times by the Los Angeles Rams during Sunday’s game, and that does not include several other quarterback hits. That tied the record for most sacks taken in one Super Bowl.

Of course, as it usually is, this was hardly Burrow’s fault. According to NFL Next Gen Stats, the Bengals posted a 14 percent pass block win rate in the game, which marks the worst in any NFL game all season.

Essentially, this means the Rams were winning in the defensive trenches on almost nine out of ten plays. Even when Burrow wasn’t sacked, he was pressured or hurried, and hardly had time to make his reads or survey his options. In the end, it even got Burrow hurt late in the game.

Some of this is certainly down to the Bengals’ offensive line. However, they were also up against a very motivated Aaron Donald, who was more or less unplayable.

Joe Burrow limps off after suffering apparent knee injury

Joe Burrow injury

Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow was the latest to suffer an injury in the fourth quarter of Super Bowl LVI.

Burrow took a sack in the fourth quarter of the game and immediately clutched at his leg. The Bengals quarterback was visibly limping as he left the field, and appeared to be in serious pain after going down.

This was Burrow’s seventh sack of the day, though the first that really appeared to physically impact him. He was also favoring the same knee that he injured as a rookie.

Despite the injury, Burrow waved off the team’s medical staff and was back in after a Rams three-and-out.

Look: Joe Burrow did not disappoint with Super Bowl outfit

Joe Burrow promised that he had something good planned for his pregame outfit at Super Bowl LVI, and the Cincinnati Bengals certainly followed through.

Burrow showed up to SoFi Stadium on Sunday wearing a black and gray suit with tiger stripes. His hat game was also on point.

Did Burrow save his best outfit for last? We certainly think so.

Burrow has been known for oozing confidence dating back to his days at LSU. If you saw the custom chain he wore to the AFC Championship Game or the awesome glasses he rocked earlier in the postseason, you know he takes his fashion seriously.
