Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow (9) is sacked by Kansas City Chiefs defensive end Chris Jones (95) in the first quarter during a Week 17 NFL game, Sunday, Jan. 2, 2022, at Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati.

Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow had another outstanding performance during Sunday's Week 17 AFC North-clinching win against the Kansas City Chiefs at Paul Brown Stadium, breaking a pair of Andy Dalton's Bengals single-season passing records and eclipsing the 300-yard mark - with 446 - for the sixth time this season.

But fans worried about Burrow's knee as he limped off the field with less than a minute left in the 34-31 win, and backup QB Brandon Allen took the Bengals' final snaps to set up Evan McPherson's game-winning field goal.

CBS' Tracy Wolfson asked Burrow during a post-game interview how he was feeling.

"Good enough," Burrow told Wolfson.

Burrow said after the game that the knee Bengals head coach Zac Taylor got "twisted up" - not Burrow's surgically repaired knee - was sore after the team's loss to the Los Angeles Chargers last month.

Reactions:

Burrow - the most-sacked NFL quarterback this season entering Sunday's game - had faced so much pressure from the Chiefs' defense that his name had been ripped off the back of his jersey during the second half of the game.

"When numbers and letters are falling off, that means you're getting hit today," CBS color analyst Tony Romo said of Burrow during the broadcast.
