There isn’t a quarterback in the NFL that’s “swaggier” than former LSU football signal-caller Joe Burrow.

Burrow, the No. 1 pick by the Cincinnati Bengals in the 2020 NFL Draft, has an aura about him that screams “I’m cool” at all times.

Whether it’s after leading LSU to a national championship, or the Bengals to their first playoff win in over 30 years (as he did on Saturday night), Burrow always has plenty of swagger.

Here are Burrow’s top five swaggiest moments in his career (I don’t think “swaggiest” is a word, but it’s the only word appropriate for Burrow…so we’re going with it).

5. Joe Burrow’s comments after destroying Baltimore Ravens

Burrow has owned the Baltimore Ravens this season.

In two games against Baltimore in 2021, Burrow tossed for a combined 941 yards and seven touchdowns (the Bengals won both games).

The second matchup between the two teams was a 41-21 win for Cincinnati. The Bengals kept throwing the ball late in the game, despite being ahead by multiple scores.

Some teams would take it easy on an opponent in that situation. More running plays would be called.

But in the NFL, no lead is safe. Cincinnati recognized that and continue to put pressure on the Ravens.

After the game, Burrow made it clear that he wasn’t going to apologize for continuing to throw the ball with a big lead.

“This is the NFL,” said Burrow to Pro Football Talk. “This isn’t peewee, this isn’t high school where you go out and run up the score. You play until the final whistle. I don’t care what the score is. We’ve been in spots where teams go out and do that to us. They did it to us last year. No sympathy from me.”

That’s how you announce your arrival in the NFL.
