On Super Bowl Sunday, Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow has come to rule the jungle as he sports a striped suit dripping with swagger.
The Bengals are only the second team in NFL history to play a Super Bowl in their opponent’s home stadium. The Rams are 4-point favorites, and having the ultimate home field advantage is enough to make any quarterback quake in their boots. Not Joe Burrow.
Burrow stepped off the game bus and entered SoFi Stadium wearing his Bengals pride on his sleeve—literally. Burrow stunned onlookers in a black and silver striped suit, etched in a pattern resembling a tiger in the shadows.

The NFL world applauded Burrow’s suit choice with flattering words and emojis across the board.
The Athletic called him “Joey Drip” while Field Yates referenced his “suit game.” PFF referred to his Super Bowl fit as icy with a freezing emoji.
The Bengals were especially proud of Burrow, as they are now calling their revered signal-caller “Super Shiesty” after seeing him don stripes before the game.
PFF reporter Trevor Sikkema noted that Burrow “truly saved his best for last.”
It’s not just fans and admirers noticing the cool demeanor emanating from the young Bengals quarterback. According to the NFL’s Aditi Kinkhabwala, even Bengals head coach Zac Taylor has been telling his players to look to Burrow and embody his cool attitude.
Front Office Sports asked fans what it looks like Joe Burrow does for a living based on his outfit. Their answer? Coach a children’s soccer team like Will Ferrell in “Kicking and Screaming.”
Amid all the adulation is one striking observation: Cam Newton has been wearing flamboyant pregame fits for a decade, but he’s often been flamed for his fashion statements.
Is Joe Cool just borrowing style points from those who came before him, or is he ready to make a fashionable football legacy all his own? No matter the outcome of the Super Bowl LVI, history will remember the confidence Burrow was draped in when entering the Rams House.
