Surprising Teams On Wrong Side Of Week 10 Blowouts In NFL

Week 16 Result: Won vs. Baltimore 41-21

The question of Joe Burrow's viability as the franchise quarterback in Cincinnati is a matter that has already been settled. But if there were any doubting Thomases left, they were answered Sunday against the rival Ravens.

All Burrow did was scorch the Ravens for a career-best 525 passing yards and four scores in Cincinnati's second blowout win over the Ravens this season. That victory puts the Bengals in the driver's seat in the AFC North, and after the win, Burrow told reporters that getting Cincy into the postseason for the first time since 2015 is much more important than gaudy stats.

"We're right where we want to be," Burrow said. "We knew we had a chance to be in this position in training camp. We knew the kind of team we had. You couldn't ask for a better situation right now. We control our destiny. Win these next two games, and we've got the division locked."

"Sunday's blowout win was a big step for the Bengals," Davenport said. "A chance to show that they are ready for the pressure of meaningful December football. But next week's visit from the red-hot Chiefs is the real litmus test. If Burrow can somehow figure out a way to pull that one off, the Bengals will go from AFC North front-runner to legitimate threat in the conference."

"As long as Cincinnati's front five can keep Joe Burrow upright, the Bengals' passing attack can torch any defense," Sobleski added. "Burrow set a franchise record Sunday with 525 passing yards, which is the fourth-most in NFL history. The fact that he's the league's most sacked quarterback remains a major concern. Still, Burrow remains unflappable with awesome pocket presence and legitimate escapability to extend plays and let his skill-position performers go to work."
