Joe Burrow cautions against panicking over Bengals' slow start to 2022 season: 'We are going to be fine'

So far the Bengals have not had the strong start to the 2022 season that they had hoped for and that many predicted for last year's Super Bowl runners-up.

Despite the offseason adjustments Cincinnati made to try to address previous issues, namely the troublesome offensive line, the Bengals have struggled in their first two games, dropping contests to both the Steelers and the Cowboys. Quarterback Joe Burrow has gotten off to a bad start, too, committing five turnovers in the opener and taking a league-high 13 sacks over the first two games.  But Burrow thinks all will be fine, Coral Smithd of reports.

But despite the rising chorus of worries about what this slow start means for Cincinnati's chances of returning to the playoffs, much less making another championship run, Burrow said Wednesday that he's not worried yet about the state of the team, and there's plenty of time left for the Bengals to work out their issues.

"Let's just take a deep breath and relax. We are going to be fine," Burrow said, per The Athletic. "Obviously we have to play well and get a win, you can't go down 0-3. But nobody is panicking."

"We were in here talking about the same exact stuff, several times last year," Burrow said, per WCPO. "Everyone saw how it worked out."
