Joe Burrow: ‘No Excuses’ For Limp Attacking VS Browns

Joe Burrow endured a frustrating Monday Night game against the Cleveland Browns without injured star wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase.

The Bengals produced a measly 229 yards of offense against Cleveland. As well as that, they were 4-of-10 on third downs.

Joe Burrow had 232 yards on 35 attempts and two touchdowns and an interception. It was the first time this season that Bengals pass catchers failed to generate at least 50 yards.

Nonetheless, Joe Burrow says the absence of Chase isn’t an excuse for poor performances.

“Any time that guy goes down, it is going to have an effect, but we are a better offense than what we put out there tonight, even without him,” the third-year QB said. “There are no excuses for that.

“It is tough, whenever one of your friends goes down like that,” Burrow added.

“You do not want it to weigh on you. We expect him to be back at some point. When that is, I am not sure. He is going to do what he needs to do to get back on the field.”

“This isn’t the type of team we are,” coach Zac Taylor said. “This is a 17-game season and this is one game. We weren’t at our best today at any phase. I’m confident that’s not who we are, but we can make the corrections and flush this one away quickly, turn our attention to Carolina on the six-day week. Have a great opportunity to get this out of our system quickly and play next Sunday.”
