On Wednesday morning, the NFL received some bad news with the latest round of COVID-19 tests.
New England Patriots star Stephon Gilmore, an unnamed player on the Las Vegas Raiders and two players on the Tennessee Titans all reportedly tested positive for the virus.
It was a bad morning for the league, which was forced to postpone two games last weekend. With the latest batch of positive tests, several games could be in jeopardy this weekend as well.
Following the rough news around the league this morning, Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow had a simple message.
“Wear a mask so we can keep playing football :),” he said in a post on Instagram.
It’s a simple request from the rookie quarterback, who just won his first NFL game on Sunday afternoon.
Cincinnati entered as the underdog against the Jacksonville Jaguars. However, the Bengals received a massive game from star running back Joe Mixon en route to a 33-25 win.
Mixon racked up 151 rushing yards and two rushing touchdowns. He also added six receptions for 30 yards and Joe Burrow’s only passing touchdown.
Burrow completed 25-of-36 passes for 300 yards with one touchdown and one interception. Although Cincinnati opened the season with two straight losses, the rookie quarterback has looked the part of an upper-tier NFL starting quarterback.
He’ll hope to keep the momentum rolling this weekend against the Baltimore Ravens.
