He is coming off a solid performance in Sunday’s 37-30 road win over the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Burrow completed 24 of 39 passes for 355 yards and four touchdowns.

FedEx will make a $2,000 donation in Burrow’s name to a HBCU, WCPO reports.

Burrow became the third-fastest quarterback to reach 10,000 career passing yards in Sunday’s win and his four passing touchdowns matched a career-high.

He also received the FedEx Player of the Week honor during Weeks 6 and 7 of the season.

The Bengals’ next game will be Sunday when they travel to Nashville, Tennessee to play the Tennessee Titans. It is a rematch of January’s AFC Divisional Playoffs when the Bengals upset the Titans, 19-16.

Kickoff is at 1 p.m. You can watch the game on Channel 7.
