Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow doesn’t mind a little trash talk on Sundays.
The former LSU standout enjoys talking trash to opponents as much as he enjoys hearing opponents talk trash to him.
Burrow feels like it energizes him when the opposition goes back and forth with him.
So who’s the best trash talker in the NFL that Burrow has played against so far?
Burrow appeared on the Full Send Podcast this week and he revealed that New England Patriots linebacker Matt Judon, a Baton Rouge native, is the best trash talker he’s played against.
Burrow played against Judon as a rookie in 2020. At the time, Judon was a member of the Baltimore Ravens (Baltimore beat Cincinnati 27-3 in that particular matchup).
“Matt Judon, Patriots, best trash talker in the league,” said Burrow.
“Even if it’s not a play where he did anything, he’s talking,” explained Burrow. “And I love that. Unfortunately, we stunk that year, so I couldn’t really say anything back. But I think we play the Patriots this year so that’ll be fun.”
Burrow will get his chance at revenge against Judon in week 16 when the Bengals travel to New England to take on the Patriots on Christmas Eve.
Hopefully, Burrow and Judon are Mic’d up for that game — because I’m sure there will be some must-hear audio clips that come from that matchup.
