Why Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals’ historic ATS career deserves more attention

Why Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals’ historic ATS career deserves more attention

Michael Jordan’s Chicago Bulls carried society through the ’90s, the Dynasty Patriots did the same through the early 2000s, and the first three phases of the Marvel Cinematic Universe did so through the 2010s. So, who qualifies to make 2020 his decade? The Rock, TikTok, and medical stocks have all made a strong case to this point, but one team led by one man is the leader right now, and no one seems to want to admit it.

Joe Burrow and Cincinnati Bengals.

The Bengals won (and were covered) in Foxborough on Christmas Eve, and they seem like just the gift that keeps on giving. Including the last postseason, Sensei has now covered 20 of 23 games, and it’s as household a series as anything we’ve seen. The irony of covering burrows in the house Tom Brady Built should not be lost. Brady had one of the best 23 games we’ve ever seen, guiding the Patriots to a 22-1 mark starting in Week 2 of the 2003 season through Week 4 of the following regular season. From an outright standpoint, that completely dwarfs the Bengals’ current record (17-6), but even the New England team failed to reach the level of dominance against the spread that the Cincinnati team had at its center:

Pretty cool stuff for orange and black. And remarkably similar profiles of midfielders. This isn’t to say that Burrow is the next Brady or anything like that, but when it comes to a streak of greatness, especially a streak of greatness above expectations, what Joe Cool has done with this Cincinnati team simply cannot be overstated.

Beginning in 2003, New England won their division in the 16 consecutive seasons that Brady was intact, and they finished no better than fourth in the three seasons before Brady took over. Boro brought the Bengals a league title last season and put them in position to repeat the AFC North title this year (the Bengals finished fourth in the three seasons leading up to this current high). For those who keep on track, Brady’s 2004 Patriots went on to win the Super Bowl… over a top-ranked Eagles team that had a QB averaging nearly eight yards per individual opportunity (completions and rushes). interesting.

What Cincinnati does is no longer a cute or cute story. it’s a the a story. A story nearly 400 days old that still isn’t getting the attention it deserves.
