Why Burrow is the best

In a tweet Friday morning, Don Kleiman shows off some stats with Burrow that make him feel like the quarterback is the best quarterback of the fourth quarter.

With him leading the way in touchdown passes and first down percentage, it shows the Bengals’ quarterback in a good light.

However, Burrow’s 82 QBR in the fourth quarter ranks him third among NFL quarterbacks.

While the numbers are impressive to Kleiman, they are also misleading.

So how do these numbers fool people who see this tweet?

Burrow’s numbers don’t tell the whole story

The hallmark of a great quarterback in the fourth quarter is winning games in the fourth.

While Burrow has four game-winning drives in 2022, he only has three fourth-quarter comebacks.

Another NFL quarterback has more fourth quarter comebacks in 2022 over Burrow.

That quarterback is Kirk Cousins ​​of the Minnesota Vikings.

His six game-winning drives and fourth-quarter comebacks put him ahead of Burrow.

While Burrow has better passing numbers than Cousins, it’s the Vikings’ quarterback who is winning games.

So everyone is using the numbers to fuel their narrative in the best quarterback talk of the fourth quarter.

However, Burrow falls a bit short when NFL quarterbacks examine each number with fourth quarter play.
