One thing going in the Bengals’ favor this year has been avoiding any major COVID-19 outbreaks.
That is impressive at a time when teams all over the NFL are losing players and coaches to the virus on a daily basis.
Burrow addressed how his team has stayed healthy and avoided the virus in what is truly a hilarious soundbite.
“Fortunately, there's not a ton to do in Cincinnati…” 😂

Burrow explains how the lack of nightlife in Cincinnati is actually a good thing as players aren’t going out and partying during the week.
City officials may not laugh at this, but it is actually a good thing during the strange times we are living in.
Bengals On The Right Track
The Bengals have had an interesting season in 2021.
Fans have seen Burrow and company destroy the Baltimore Ravens, only to lose to the New York Jets the following week.
The Bengals also got blown out by the Cleveland Browns, but have managed to do enough to sit atop the division late in the year.
The final three games of the season will determine if the Bengals are truly contenders.

They get the Ravens, Kansas City Chiefs, and Browns in that order to finish up their 2021 slate.
Baltimore has an identical 8-6 record, meaning that matchup has the potential to shake things up in the AFC playoff picture.
If Cincinnati wins, they take command of the division.
If they lose, the Ravens are back on top and the Bengals are in a tough fight for a Wild Card spot.
The good news is that, according to Burrow, the Bengals should continue to stay healthy because there is just nowhere to go in Cincinnati to let loose and potentially catch COVID.NEXT: Stat Proves Why The Bengals Offense Is Thriving In 2021
