After Burrow briefed the media on his season-ending torn ligament in his throwing wrist and Browning conducted his last locker interview before ascending to Burrow's podium next week, public relations mavens Emily Parker and P.J. Combs walked Browning through his weekly media responsibilities.

Bengals, Ravens both lose? Joe Burrow, Mark Andrews injuries take toll
The loss was clearly devastating to Cincinnati, which fell to 5-5 while suffering a season sweep at the hands of the Ravens (8-3) – a tiebreaker that would severely hinder the Bengals’ ability to win the division for a third straight season.

4 impending free agents the Bengals should re-sign in 2024
Once the 2023 season comes to a close, no matter how it goes for the Cincinnati Bengals, they will have quite a few players heading into free agency (assuming they aren't extended before the next league year begins on March 13th, 2024). Hitting the market will be a healthy mix of depth guys who are called on in the event of injury or blowout and consistent contributors/starters who see the field quite a bit, and may even be considered premium assets to hunt for once the legal tampering window opens.

Bengals, Ravens players exchange barbs on social media about how Joe Burrow's injury affected the outcome
Following Baltimore's 34-20 win over Cincinnati on Thursday night, Bengals linebacker Germaine Pratt said via social media the Ravens only looked good because star quarterback Joe Burrow went down with a season-ending injury at the end of the first half. That prompted a back-and-forth between Pratt and Ravens linebacker Patrick Queen.

Who is Joe Burrow’s replacement? Meet new Bengals starting quarterback Jake Browning
The Bengals are 5-5, in last place in a stacked AFC North, and are currently out of the playoff picture. They'll have to rely on Jake Browning for what many think needs to be a miracle run against the toughest remaining schedule in the league.'

Week 11 NFL picks: Steelers or Browns in AFC North bout? Who wins Eagles-Chiefs Super Bowl rematch?
Why Brooke is taking the Cowboys: Dallas is averaging 33.7 points per game against opponents with a losing record this season. And against all opponents, the Cowboys' defense is allowing 18.3 points per game (fourth in the NFL) and 275.1 total yards per game (third). Saying this is a tall order for the Panthers doesn't really do the challenge justice, especially after Bryce Young was outplayed by an undrafted rookie a week ago.

NFL Week 11 bold predictions: Kyler Murray and C.J. Stroud provide thriller; Tony Pollard scores THRICE!
Tony Pollard hasn’t scored since Week 1. He has the most touches of any player with two touchdowns or fewer this season. So, the Cowboys look to get Pollard going this week against the Panthers, who have allowed the most rushing TDs and fourth-most receiving TDs to running backs in 2023. Dallas' RB1 makes up for the last month (and then some), breaking out of his slump with a three-score day.
