'Too good to be true': Buzz surrounds Burrow during bye week

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) It's all about Joe.

Coach Zac Taylor says rookie quarterback Joe Burrow was the one piece the Cincinnati Bengals needed to get the other pieces of an already good offense to coalesce and play at a higher level.

Taylor's framing of the narrative is meant to recognize some of the guys who slogged through a 2-14 season with him last year, while acknowledging that the linchpin is the 23-year-old newcomer whose dynamic play has brought some excitement back to a franchise that was stuck in the mud.
