I don’t usually talk about other topics outside of entertainment on my site, mainly sports, but when I do it’s because something has happened so incredible I have to share my excitement. And oh my goodness was that weekend of football literally the best I’ve ever seen.
When do you ever have a series of games that all come down to the wire, and the last game ends up in overtime after one of the most miraculous endings of regulation I’ve ever witnessed.
Let’s talk about that first game, the up-and-coming Cincinnati Bengals led by my favorite new quarterback, Joe Burrow (he’s the real deal) versus the team that lives up to their name, the Tennessee Titans. It was a defensive masterpiece with both teams barely able to make things happen.
Back and forth the Bengals and Titans went as the 35-degree weather chilled the air. Burrow got sacked, if I remember correctly, ten times in a game that felt like annihilation on the Bengals side, and yet he and his team never stopped fighting.
