New Super Bowl Attendee

Only being on the team for two seasons, Burrow did the unthinkable and carried his team to this year’s Super Bowl. He talked about coming into his first season he would be shocked, but this season it was an expectation.

Borrow mentioned that if anybody told him at the beginning season that the Super Bowl would be in his future he would not believe anybody. The Super Bowl is something for any athletes to be excited about once they made it there.

At the end of the AFC championship, the Chiefs’ fans left, and the Bengals fans stayed to watch their team accept the trophy and celebrate with Burrow and their team.

The Bengal take on the Rams on Feb. 13th in SoFi Stadium at 6:30 at the Super Bowl.
