The Cincinnati Bengals have continued their success from 2021 into the 2022 season, which is spearheaded by quarterback Joe Burrow.
Burrow is thriving in his third NFL Season, particularly when it comes to production in the red zone.

If the Bengals can get in the red zone this season, it feels like a foregone conclusion that they are going to score.
When in the red zone, the Bengals score a touchdown at a 68 percent rate, the fourth-best mark in the league.
Burrow has yet to throw an interception in the red zone in 2022, and his touchdown numbers dictate that as well.
His 21 red zone touchdown passes are second, only to Patrick Mahomes.
Burrow’s Continued Success
After Burrow led the Bengals to the Super Bowl in 2021, many were worried about the team experiencing a Super Bowl hangover.
Their Super Bowl opponent, Los Angeles Rams, is 4-9 this season.
However, Burrow and the Bengals have only gotten better this season.
The Bengals ended the 2021 regular season with a record of 10-7.
At 10-4, the Bengals will likely finish this season with a better overall record than that of 2021.
To end their season, the Bengals will face the New England Patriots, Buffalo Bills, and Baltimore Ravens.
The Bengals certainly have an opportunity to take down these AFC juggernauts in the next few weeks, giving them much-needed momentum going into the playoffs.
Going on a winning streak is one of the best things that a team can do when entering the playoffs.
The Bengals have won six straight.
Can they make it nine?
