Joe Burrow’s historic day against Falcons keeps Bengals first
So it had to be asked on Sunday, after Burrow guided the Bengals to their fourth win in their last five games with a historic passing performance that included a 35-17 win over the Falcons in front of a happy, muggy 66,158 crowd in the paycor- stadium fired.
Bengals Quick Hits Off 35-17 Victory Over Falcons
After catching 481 yards from Burrows in Sunday’s 35-17 win over the Falcons at Paycor Stadium 130, Chase proclaimed the opening game of the second quarter as Burrows’ best pass of all time. Burrow always says that when he sees Chase in men’s coverage, he automatically goes to him and this was no different.
Burrows 481 leads Bengals over Falcons, 35-17
A packed house of 66,158 watched as Burrow led his three wide receivers for the second-biggest offensive day in head coach Zac Taylor’s four seasons as the Bengals stayed 4-3 in first place in the AFC North. Tyler Boyd had a career-high 155 yards, Ja’Marr Chase went for 130 for a second straight game after playing 132 last week, and Tee Higgins amassed 93 as the Bengals rolled for 537 yards, only second last year’s 575 against the Ravens.
Everything Joe Burrow had to say after week 7
“It felt good. We rolled that first half, most of the second half too. We didn’t score on two of the drives. It was a pretty complete game, good to see. They want to keep scoring I thought , we could have any property so we left something out there but overall it was a complete effort.
Everything Zac Taylor had to say after defeating the Falcons
“What else can you do differently? I have a lot of respect for them but I thought our guys really kicked on offense. The offensive line provided excellent protection so Joe could do what he did with all the skillful guys could we have. Those three sacks looked very different – one of them was a cadence problem, one of them was one of the best bluffs I’ve ever seen in my life. Hats off to him for that, we’re not “win on this. Then there is a third. I thought how many times we threw the ball, how efficient we were, how good our offensive line was today – hats off to them. There were a lot of drop back passes.” — it wasn’t under center, it wasn’t play action, there wasn’t nude, there wasn’t a lot of screen, there wasn’t runs to take the pressure off. It was drop- Back-and-guarding and our guys rang the bell today. And of course our skill guys picked up too.”

Joe Burrow is enjoying the Falcons and the Bengals offense is back
Joe Burrow started Sunday at a record pace, enjoying an unlucky Atlanta Falcons pass defense en route to a 35-17 win. Ultimately, he fell short of Norm Van Brocklin’s one-game passing record of 554 yards, which amazingly still stands after it was set in 1951.

“We wanted to work Cam in there,” said Bengals coach Zac Taylor, according to Bengals.com’s Geoff Hobson. “He’s a player who, when he’s trained for us, has done a really good job and made a strong impression and it’s time to put him on special teams and some in defence, too.”

2022 NFL Season, Week 7: What We Learned From Sunday’s Games
The explosive Bengals are back! Cincinnati has shifted its offensive identity from a mixed formation aiming to unbalance defense to shotgun and fly them, and it’s paying off well. Thanks to a first-half 344 yards, Joe Burrow had his eyes on the football world as he flirted with the all-time record for passing yards in a game (554, Norm Van Brocklin in 1951). He finished with a healthy 481 yards and three touchdowns (and added another score on the floor) and fueled an offensive line for the Bengals that totaled 537 offensive yards and converted 7 of 11 third downs.
The five biggest upsets of the 2022 NFL season so far: Struggles for Buccaneers, Packers stand out
This season turned previous season’s predictions on their head. One reason: So much of the league is clustered right around the center line. As Sunday started, 10 teams were tied 3-3, even .500. And another 13 teams were another score away from being .500, for better or for worse. Teams that should be dominant have struggled. Some who should be fighting have skyrocketed.
NFL Stats and Records, Week 7: Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes counts among the HOFers with his performance against the 49ers
In Sunday’s game, Mahomes trailed by 10 points for the 17th time since the start of the 2019 season, including playoffs. But after his Week 7 win in San Francisco, Mahomes is 12-5 (.706) in such games over that span. The only two quarterbacks with a higher actual winning percentage since 2019 are himself (.790) and Aaron Rodgers (.733). Basically, even if Mahomes is 10+ points behind in a game, he’s still better than your favorite quarterback.
Steve Wilks: It’s hard to pull PJ Walker out of the Panthers’ starting QB job after the upset win over the Buccaneers
“PJ put on an outstanding performance,” Wilks said on the team’s official website. “If you look at what he did today – the tape has yet to be evaluated – it’s going to be difficult to try to pull him out.”
