Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow celebrated a touchdown pass to Samaje Perine in the fourth quarter of the team’s win against the Steelers in NSFW fashion.
Hot mics can be wonderful. They can also warrant an FCC violation. In this case, CBS will be hearing from the governing body thanks to Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow.
Burrow found Samaje Perine in the end zone for the third time on Sunday, and decided to celebrate with his teammates. While Burrow’s lingo was normal for those on the field, some viewing at home may have caught a little whiplash.
The LSU product pulled a Tom Brady, yelling “Let’s f—–g go,” live on national television. The clip can be found here.
Bengals, Joe Burrow are officially back
Joe Burrow and the Bengals got their revenge on the Steelers for a Week 1 defeat. Frankly, Cincinnati should have won that game, also, but turned the ball over way too much to win.
They didn’t make the same mistake on Sunday, despite two interceptions by Burrow. The former No. 1 overall pick was relatively perfect outside of those mistakes, one of which came on a tipped ball. Even without Ja’Marr Chase, Tyler Boyd and Tee Higgins filled in admirably. Perine was an unlikely hero, as well, catching three touchdown en route to a victory.
At 6-4, Cincinnati has officially turned their season around. They’re one game behind the Ravens in the AFC North, and won their first divisional game of the season thanks to Pittsburgh. Despite giving up 20 first-half points to arguably the worst offense in football, the Bengals defense snapped back into form in the second half, giving up just three points after a T.J. Watt forced turnover.
Overall, Pittsburgh had very little answer for Burrow all game. He has every right to celebrate, even if it’s a little NSFW.
