COVID-19 is currently affecting multiple NFL teams. Many players are on the COVID-19 list as the number of positive cases across North American sports continues to rise.
The Cincinnati Bengals are one team that has managed to avoid having a lengthy reserve/COVID-19 list. There could be many reasons why this is the case, but Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow has a funny -- and brutally honest -- theory about why his team has managed to keep players healthy and on the field.
Prepare Ohio folk, his answer is not exactly a compliment to one city in your state.
Here's what Burrow said, via ESPN:
"Fortunately, there's not a ton to do in Cincinnati. Nobody is going out to clubs and bars and getting COVID every weekend."
Poor Queen City.
Burrow continued, saying "We're still a healthy team, which not a lot of people can say at this point of the season. We've been lucky as far as injuries and COVID."
This NFL season has already seen rescheduled games, with the league postponing three games last week as COVID-19 cases increased. Burrow's squad is currently battling it out with the Baltimore Ravens for the AFC North division title. Both teams are 8-6.
