After Burrow says relax, Bengals pull off 2 wins in 5 days

CINCINNATI (AP) After Cincinnati lost the first two games of the season, Joe Burrow told everyone to relax. The Bengals would turn it around, the star quarterback promised.

Maybe feeding off the out-sized confidence of their leader, the Bengals reeled off two wins in the span of five days, including Thursday night's 27-15 triumph over the Miami Dolphins in front a record home crowd.

Burrow said the team looked at the quick Sunday-Thursday turnaround as an opportunity "to get that ugly taste out of our mouth" from the first two sloppy losses to Pittsburgh and Dallas.
