The Cincinnati Bengals have a certified star on their hands.
Since he entered the league, Joe Burrow has set the entire league on fire, both due to his on-field play, and his cool demeanor off the field.
Burrow’s confidence is unmatched by almost anyone in the league, and after their beatdown of the Buffalo Bills, he had another legendary quote.
Joe Burrow to @tracywolfson on all those neutral site AFC Championship Game tickets that were sold: “Better send those refunds.”

After the first matchup between the Bills and Bengals was canceled, the NFL was forced to act accordingly.
If the Bills would have won, the AFC Championship would have been played in Atlanta, a neutral site between the Bills and Kansas City Chiefs.
The NFL had sold over 50,000 tickets for that game, which will now be refunded.
In a postgame presser, Burrow was well aware of the tickets being sold in advance of that game, which is where this quote comes from.
Yesterday, Burrow had a spectacular performance, throwing for 242 yards, two touchdowns, and no interceptions.
Not bad for a snow game.
This game was dominated by the Bengals, and after they scored on their opening drive, it felt like the Bills were never going to be able to get anything going, which happened to be the case.
Burrow has vaulted himself into the conversation as one of, if not the best quarterback in the NFL.
He has a proven history of winning at the collegiate level as well as the pro level.
It appears that, as long as Burrow is healthy, the Bengals are going to be the team to beat in the AFC.
