The Bengals have won their first playoff game in 31 years, however, Joe Burrow’s glasses were the talk of social media after the huge victory.

The Cincinnati Bengals have won their first postseason game since 1991 after beating the Las Vegas Raiders 26-19 on Super Wild Card Weekend.

Burrow led the team to the AFC North title this season, finishing with 4,611 yards passing along with 34 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. He also threw for 400+ yards and four touchdowns in his last two games heading into the Raiders matchup.

He was equally instrumental in the Raiders win, completing 24-of-34 passes for 244 yards, two touchdowns, and no interceptions. However, after the game it was Joe Burrow’s glasses that went viral.

Joe Burrow’s dope glasses go viral

During his postgame presser, Joe Burrow rocked some pretty dope glasses. The Bengals QB had on a pair of tinted shades and people were comparing him to Robert Downey Jr.

When he was asked if there’s a significance of his glasses, he said no, but said, “I just thought they’re pretty cool.”

His pregame look in general was pretty dope

Burrow actually teased the glasses before the game got underway. He turned up to Paul Brown Stadium with a Space Jam logo on the left side of his jacket, as well as the shades.

Bengals QB remains calm after game

Despite the huge win, Burrow refused to let himself get too carried away. Per ESPN’s Ben Baby, he said: “This is the playoffs. If you dwell on this one too much, you’re going to get beat in the next round.”

The Bengals will likely hit the road for their matchup in the divisional round next week. They won’t know their opponent until after Sunday’s games are completed, but know that a win will send them to the AFC title game.
