Former LSU Football quarterback Joe Burrow showed off his elite mindset on Saturday evening after leading the Cincinnati Bengals to a win over the Las Vegas Raiders in the wild card round of the playoffs.

The win was the Bengals’ first in the playoffs in over 30 years.

Suffice it to say, it was a pretty big moment for Cincinnati fans. There was definitely reason for celebration.

Burrow, however, had no desire to celebrate. During his post-game interview, he explicitly stated that there would be no cigar-smoking celebrations from Bengals players. They have their eyes on a higher goal.

“It’s a great win for us, the city, and the organization, but we expected this,” said Burrow during his post-game interview. “There’s not going to be a big celebration like when we won the division. We took care of business, and it’s on to the next round.”

Everything about Joe Burrow is elite

There are plenty of quarterbacks who would’ve been blinded by the bright lights in their first playoff game.

But not Joe Burrow. He was just as cool as he’s always been.

Burrow has the “it factor”. And it’s not just a “he has the it factor and he’s going to be a Pro-Bowl quarterback for years to come” — Burrow has the Tom Brady it factor.

A lot has to go right for Burrow in his career to achieve Brady-like success. He needs to stay healthy, he needs to be surrounded by great players on defense. And he needs coaches like Brady had in New England. But when it comes to Burrow’s abilities, mindset, and leadership, he is the closest thing we’ve seen to Brady.

There is no ceiling to what Burrow could accomplish in the NFL.
