Joe Burrow has made public comments (outside of speaking to the media) for the first time following Sunday’s loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship game.

Taking to Instagram on Wednesday, Burrow shared two photos from the game with the simple caption “The journey continues…”

In the AFC title game against the Chiefs, Burrow completed 26 of 41 passes for 270 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions. As for Mahomes, despite dealing with a high ankle sprain that he sustained the previous week against the Jaguars, he went 29/43 for 326 yards, two touchdowns, and no interceptions.

The game was the first time in Burrow’s career that he lost to Mahomes and the Chiefs, as he was previously 3-0 against the AFC heavyweights.

Despite the tough loss, Burrow was nothing but classy to Mahomes when they shared some words during their postgame handshake.

“Many more, dog, many more,” Mahomes said to Burrow. “Hell of a game. You have a hell of a career dog.”

“You too, brother,” Burrow said in response. “Go win it now.”

Heading into Super Bowl LVII, Mahomes and the Chiefs find themselves as 2.5-point underdogs against Jalen Hurts and the Philadelphia Eagles.

Earlier this season, Burrow made headlines when he said the Bengals’ championship window would be open throughout the entirety of his career, meaning NFL fans should get used to seeing him and Mahomes battle it out in the AFC playoffs over the course of the next decade.

Heading into next season, Burrow and the Bengals will likely be one of the favorites in the AFC once again, as Burrow’s only two healthy seasons in the league have resulted in the Bengals playing in the AFC Championship game.
