Burrow’s comments refer to a somewhat controversial call in the third quarter of the Baltimore Ravens-Kansas City Chiefs game.
Let the guys taunt.
— Joey Burrow (@JoeyB) January 28, 2024
Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson found wide receiver Zay Flowers for a 54-yard gain down the field, but after securing the catch, Flowers appeared to stand over and taunt his defender L’Jarius Sneed.
The Ravens were slapped with a 15-yard taunting penalty and were unable to capitalize on the drive, which ended with an unfortunate fumble-turned-touchback in the Chiefs’ end zone.
Burrow’s short and sweet message to the NFL officials seems curious for the obvious fact that Baltimore is his biggest rival.
The Bengals and Chiefs have locked horns before as recently as last year’s AFC championship game, but the Ravens remain Cincinnati’s longtime division rivals. Burrow, whose 2023 season was cut short due to a torn ligament in his wrist, likely doesn’t want to see either AFC team go on to win the Super Bowl.
He, along with the rest of the NFL community, is no doubt still intrigued to see who will come out on top on Sunday.
