Joe Burrow has instituted a massive change for the Cincinnati Bengals organization.
In just three seasons, he’s been able to bring the Bengals to the top of the AFC, making them yearly Super Bowl contenders.
While he has changed the organization, Burrow has also racked up significant personal stats.
According to Sunday Night Football on NBC, he is the league’s all-time leader in completion percentage for players with at least 1,500 attempts.

Burrow’s 68.24% finds him slightly above Drew Brees, Jimmy Garoppolo, Deshaun Watson, and Kirk Cousins.
Brees is the only inactive quarterback on this list and is known to be one of the most accurate QBs in league history.
If Burrow keeps this pace going, he’ll top Brees’ already-impressive record.
Bengals fans might have to wait to see Burrow’s dominance continue, however.
During the early days of training camp, Burrow suffered a leg injury and is out for an undetermined amount of time.
The coaching staff has expressed confidence that Burrow will be able to play this season.
Many pundits have given their takes on the situation with varying degrees of certainty.
Others have indicated that Burrow will be ready for Week 1, while others think he should wait until midseason, at least.
The sooner Burrow is back, the better.
The Bengals had one of the league’s top offenses last season, largely due to Burrow’s success, confidence, and completion percentage.
