COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The Cincinnati Bengals’ 2-5-1 record at the halfway point does not reflect how thrilled the team is with the development of rookie quarterback Joe Burrow.
He’s put up eye-popping numbers and his play so far has buoyed the team and given some hope to the team’s wary fan base.
They’re hoping last week’s 31-20 win over the AFC North-leading Tennessee Titans might be a breakthrough for a team that has been close in four of the five losses.
Cincinnati has a bye week, which means extra time to prepare for the Nov. 15 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
