Former Washington Huskies quarterback has been leading the Cincinnati Bengals since starter Joe Burrow suffered a season-ending injury earlier this year against the Baltimore Ravens.
Browning has started the last three games, the first starts of his career after the undrafted QB was signed to the Bengals practice squad in 2021 and beat out Trevor Siemian for the backup spot earlier this season.
But being unexpectedly thrust into the limelight, he turned to his injured star quarterback Joe Burrow to help get his family in the stands.
During the Bengals game against the Indianapolis Colts at Paycor Stadium this past weekend, Browning’s family watched from the comfort of one of the stadium’s box suites. And after the Bengals scored a 34-10 win, the quarterback revealed that it was Burrow who hooked his family up:
“First of all, it is not my box. I did not buy that preseason. Very expensive.
Joe Burrow was nice enough to give them some tickets so they didn’t have to sit up in the cold. We’re all from California. I’m used to it. They’re not. So I’m sure they were much more excited in the box.”
Joe Burrow gifted his suite to Jake Browning's family and friends today. I asked @jake_browning about having his family present for the win vs the Colts⬇️
