The Kansas City Chiefs lost at home to the Cincinnati Bengals last year in the AFC Championship Game and with a rematch set to take place this Sunday, Bengals cornerback Mike Hilton decided to take a shot at the Chiefs’ home stadium as the Bengals were wrapping up their win over the Buffalo Bills in the Divisional Round of the playoffs.
“We’ll see ya’ll in Burrowhead,” Mike Hilton said in the video captured by NFL Films:
“Burrowhead” is in reference to Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow and his success at Arrowhead Stadium in recent memory. The former 2020 No. 1 overall pick is 3-0 against the Kansas City Chiefs in his career.
Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce got wind of Hilton’s comments and responded to it on his weekly podcast.
“We are the loudest stadium in the world, on record … 142 decibels. … I don’t know, I don’t know. Maybe we’re gonna have to break it this week because a lot of Cincinnati Bengals fans are calling it ‘Burrowhead’ instead of Arrowhead. They’re throwing a lot of bulletin-board material out there.”
Not that Arrowhead isn’t loud already but expect to be even louder (if possible) on Sunday.
