Joe Burrow is getting ready for the big game taking on the Rams this Sunday in Super Bowl 56. The Bengals and Rams have been preparing for the big game. Joe Burrow however is no stranger to big games.

We all remember when Joe Burrow led the LSU Tigers to a perfect 15-0 season in 2019 and won the college football national championship.  That alone made every Louisiana football fan a Joe Burrow fan for life!

But as if Louisiana folks need another reason to love Joe Burrow, we have found out that Joe is a New Orleans Saints fan. That's right Joe Burrow is a Saints fan and his favorite player growing up was Drew Brees.

We found this out this week as Joe Burrow took to the microphone for media day for the Super Bowl and when he was asked who was his favorite NFL team was growing up and he said the Saints.

I know, we all love Joe Burrow for that statement.  He is Louisiana's adopted son.

The first-round draft pick and Heisman Trophy winner is probably everyone's favorite player in Louisiana.  We are all rooting for Joe and the Bengals to bring home the Super Bowl trophy for the Bengals this Sunday as they face the LA Rams. The kick-off for that game is at 5:25 pm on NBC.
