The Cincinnati Bengals have come alive.
After a slow, 1-3 record to begin the year, the Bengals have now rattled off four straight wins, including their latest over the Buffalo Bills.
One of the biggest reasons for their growing success is Joe Burrow and his ability to get healthier every week.
As Burrow pointed out in a postgame press conference, one of his biggest keys to success is that he can now ‘run.’

When he was not operating at full health, Burrow couldn’t scramble as efficiently as he typically does.
Now that he is seemingly feeling better than ever, he can operate without any hindrance or trepidation.
This win over the Bills might have been convincing and a sign that the Bengals are ready to compete again, but Burrow indicated that the best is yet to come.
“We’re just going to keep getting better every week,” Burrow exclaimed.
He believes they are just getting started, even after their slow start to the season.
If the Bengals continue on this trajectory, they are gearing up for a playoff spot and might surprise a few teams in the postseason.
The offense continues to roll under Burrow, and their defense has shown to hold up against even the toughest of competitors.
The Bengals’ next three games are against the Houston Texans, Baltimore Ravens, and Pittsburgh Steelers.
While the Texans might be an easier test for the Bengals, facing two straight divisional opponents is no small feat.
They will have an opportunity to prove to themselves and the rest of the league that they are the real deal by performing well against their AFC North rivals.NEXT: Ja’Marr Chase Names The Best DB He’s Faced In The NFL
