Burrow wins FedEx Air NFL Player of the Week
The Bengals quarterback threw for 355 yards and four touchdowns in a win over the Steelers.
CINCINNATI (WXIX) - Joe Burrow’s performance on Sunday has earned him the FedEx Air NFL Player of the Week.
The Bengals quarterback won for his outstanding performance completing 24 of 39 attempts (61.5 percent) for 355 yards and four touchdowns for a 104.1 passer rating in the Bengals’ 37-30 win over the Steelers.
Burrow beat out the Kansas City Chiefs’ Patrick Mahomes (20/34 for 329 and 3TDs) and the Tennessee Titans’ Ryan Tannehill (22/27 for 333 and 2TDs) for the honor.
It’s Burrow’s third time winning the award this season. He won it following the Oct. 16 win against the New Orleans saints and again the next week following the Oct. 23 win against the Atlanta Falcons.
By winning the FedEx Air NFL Player of the Week Award, FedEx will make a $2,000 donation in Burrow’s name to a Historically Black College or University (HBCU), which will be applied towards needs-based scholarships to deserving HBCU students.
Burrow will look to continue his stellar play going as the Bengals take on the Titans on Sunday.
