The Cincinnati Bengals had a slow start to the season, losing three of their first four games.
While some teams might have thrown in the towel after less-than-ideal beginnings, the Bengals worked hard to turn things around.
They have rattled off four straight wins, with much of their success attributed to the duo of Ja’Marr Chase and Joe Burrow.
Burrow recently appeared on “Inside the NFL” to discuss the team’s success along with an upcoming celebration.
Chad Johnson has recently issued a challenge to Chase, hoping he would recreate one of his iconic celebrations where he grabbed a TV camera after a touchdown.
In his conversation with Burrow, Johnson made a plea for him to make this happen, saying “I’ve already put aside $20,000 for the fine.”

Burrow seems to be on board with making this happen, at least in principle.
Now, it is up to him and Chase to make this happen in the Bengals’ upcoming matchup with the Houston Texans.
The Texans present a great opportunity to give up a touchdown to Chase given their recent defensive performances.
They allowed two touchdowns to tight end Cade Otton last week, a touchdown to Tommy Tremble the week before, and a touchdown to Rashid Shaheed three weeks ago.
While all three of those athletes are solid at their positions, Chase has a great propensity to get into the end zone due to his athleticism and route running.NEXT: Former NFL GM Makes A Strong Statement About Joe Burrow
