The latest of which came on Monday night as they fell to 4-4 after their 32-12 loss at FirstEnergy Stadium.

On the night, Burrow went 35 of 25 for 232 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception, leading an offense that was missing its most potent weapon in injured wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase.

Burrow admitted post-game: “You’ve got to give credit to them (Cleveland), they always play well against us.”

“They’ve got really good players on defense, they’re good on the outside, they’re really well coached, they’re sound in their leverages in their coverage. And obviously, they’ve got Myles Garrett and [Jadeveon] Clowney that can get after the passer.

“They’ve had our number the last couple of years.”

This result leaves the 3-5 Browns just one game behind Cincinnati in the AFC North, with just three games remaining until the highly-anticipated Deshaun Watson era can begin for Cleveland.

For Burrow and the Bengals, however, there’s no reason to panic.

Burrow said: “We’re not panicking. We know what went wrong in each game.

“We’ll go back and watch the film, and make our corrections on this one just like we always have. And come back out firing next week.”

Cool, calm, and collected as always, Burrow’s attention will now turn to the 2-6 Carolina Panthers, who will head to Paul Brown Stadium on Sunday, November 6.
