Joe Burrow: Burrow carved up Kansas City on Sunday, completing 80.6% of his passes for 9.2 yards per pass attempt. He threw a pair of scores (with a third one dropped) while adding 46 yards and his fifth rushing touchdown of the season.
Burrow has now been first or second in weekly scoring in four of his past seven games, throwing 16 passing touchdowns to just three interceptions over that span.
One of the games in which was not a QB1 scorer over that period was when these teams played in Week 8. Burrow was the QB22 (13.5 points), throwing for just 6.6 Y/A. Burrow was sacked five times in that game (he has been sacked just five times since) and has been sacked 10 times in his two meetings between these teams the past two seasons.
Burrow is playing too well to dip into streaming for and has a high ceiling against any opponent, but Cleveland has only allowed three QB1 scoring weeks this season, while facing Burrow, Justin Herbert, Josh Allen, Lamar Jackson, and Tom Brady over their past nine games. Tua was the only one of those to log a front-end scoring week and the only one to throw more than two touchdown passes.
