Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow limped off the field with an undisclosed injury in the closing moments of Sunday’s battle vs. the Kansas City Chiefs. He marched the team down the field for the go-ahead score and got injured on an attempted QB-sneak. Backup Brandon Allen stepped in for a few plays before kicker Evan McPherson booted the game-winning field goal to lift them to the 34-31 win.
Burrow successfully led his team from down 28-17 in the second half to pick up the comeback win and officially clinch the AFC North. He completed 30-of-39 passes for 446 yards and four touchdowns and his huge day was in large part due to the play of receiver Ja’Marr Chase, who had 11 receptions for 266 yards and three touchdowns.
We will find out the severity of the of the injury entering the final week of the regular season. The Bengals will travel to Cleveland next Sunday.
