Twitter reactions to the Bengals’ first victory of Joe Burrow era

The Bengals were finally able to give Joe Burrow his first win as a pro thanks in large part to Joe Mixon’s big day.

The Bengals finally get over the hump and get a couple chips off their shoulders this week with their win over the Jaguars.

Joe Burrow now has his first win as a professional football player. Not to mention we got to see Joe Mixon go off. All of this came after a frustrating first half that probably had many fans in Cincinnati feeling like we were in for more of the same.

Welcome back to the jungle

Due to coronavirus concerns, the Bengals weren’t able to have fans in the stadium Week 1, but the team was able to have a small amount of fans watch the game and cheer in person. Hopefully this is a sign of things to come for the rest of the season, and everyone stays safe and healthy.

Wasted opportunities

The first half just seemed to be Cincinnati going through the greatest hits of their blunders the past few seasons. Penalties, unnecessary roughness, maddening turnovers and squandered opportunities dominated the first half. The frustration among fans was pretty obvious as well.

Joe Mixon has himself a day

There were mixed feeling when Mixon got his extension this offseason. There was even more frustration when it looked like Mixon would have tough sledding to even put up average levels of production. Even though the blame didn’t solely fall on him, you could tell he and everyone else were just waiting for him to breakout. He did just that this week.

Bengals get Burrow his first win

It may have taken Cincinnati and Burrow a little longer to get over the hump than many had hoped, but they finally pulled one out. Things looked shaky in the first half, but this team really broke away in the second half behind Mixon’s big game.

Still, Burrow again played one hell of a game when it mattered moving the ball down the field, and constantly putting the ball where it needed to be. He also set a record along the way.
