The Cincinnati Bengals are enjoying a strong season without any major COVID-19 related issues as many other NFL teams continue to struggle with outbreaks.

Currently, the team has just one player, cornerback Chidobe Awuzie, on the COVID-19 reserve list.

“We’re still a healthy team, which not a lot of people can say at this point of the season,” said quarterback Joe Burrow. “We’ve been lucky as far as injuries and COVID. We’re doing a great job with our COVID protocols.”

Speaking to reporters, Burrow partly attributed the team’s success in avoiding the virus to the Queen City nightlife situation.

“Fortunately, there’s not a ton to do in Cincinnati, so nobody’s going out to clubs and bars and getting COVID every weekend,” Burrow explained bluntly.

Due to the massive surge in cases throughout the league, the NFL postponed three games last week to Monday or Tuesday. NFL Players Association president JC Tretter further revealed on Wednesday that the league almost canceled those games entirely.

This Sunday, the Bengals (8-6) are scheduled to host the Baltimore Ravens. The two teams are currently tied at the top of the AFC North. Burrow is expected to have a good game, especially against Baltimore’s currently weakened defense, which has only 15 players available to play on that side of the ball.
