The Joe Burrow vs. Tom Brady conversation is already dominating headlines before the Cincinnati Bengals visit the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 15.
Burrow has often been compared to him, but the young QB is downplaying that notion.
“I don’t really pay attention to it. He’s Tom and I’m Joe,” Burrow said after Wednesday’s practice, via the Bengals’ official site. “I really just think that I play the game my own way. I kind of have a little bit of everybody. I wouldn’t say there’s one thing I do the best. But I would say that I do everything with the best of them. I wouldn’t say I really have a glaring weakness.”
Naturally, the topic of jersey swaps and autographs came up after the Bucs QB signed a ball this past Sunday that was intercepted off of him during the game.
