He had regular season games wherein he threw for 83.3, 80.4, and 78.1 percent.
Unfortunately, he is nowhere near those numbers two games into the 2022 NFL season.
He completed 62.2 percent of his throws during their season opener against the division rival Pittsburgh Steelers.
Worst yet, Burrow threw four interceptions in that game.
The former LSU standout did not throw a pick in Week 2 against the Dallas Cowboys.
However, his completion rate is 66.6 percent.
The Bengals lost both games on field goals, begging the theory of how the game would have played out if Burrow connected with more throws.
But as a person who does not dwell in the past, last year’s Comeback Player of the Year told Bengals fans and players not to panic.
Likewise, he decided to shut down the outside voices.
Joe Burrow says he's taken Twitter and Instagram off this phone. Blocking out the noise.

NFL Network host Andrew Siciliano tweeted, “Joe Burrow says he’s taken Twitter and Instagram off this phone. Blocking out the noise.”
Burrow can channel his energy to help the Bengals without reading derogatory comments about him and his team.
He can also remain positive by taking away all the negativity.
It remains to be seen, though, if this approach can help turn around the Bengals’ season.
The Breaks Of The Game Have Hurt The Bengals
Evan McPherson had an opportunity to be the hero once again for Cincinnati.
Unfortunately, he missed a field goal attempt, giving the Steelers life.
In Week 2, the Bengals converted only six out of 17 third-down tries.
They also allowed KaVontae Turpin to complete a big punt return, giving the Cowboys a favorable starting spot.
The small details have hurt the Bengals, leaving them winless after two weeks.
Another letdown against the New York Jets in Week 3 may lead to an 0-3 skid.
