CINCINNATI — Bengals cornerback Mike Hilton bowed out last week in a 27-10 win over Buffalo and came up with a funny nickname for the next opponent’s stadium: Burrowhead.
Our own James Rapien asked him about the origin of “Burrowhead” this week.
“You’re trying to mix something up,” Hilton said of the renaming of Arrowhead Stadium, home of the Kansas City Chiefs. “I don’t know, really it just occurred to me on the sideline, man. I just knew we were going to Kansas City, and it’s Arrowhead. So I thought about my quarterback and named him Burrowhead.”
Hilton finished with 8 tackles in the game and four pressures on Josh Allen in a masterclass performance.
Narrow boss Travis Kelce isn’t too happy with the nickname — read more about it here.
Cincinnati battles Kansas City for a Super Bowl spot this Sunday at 6:30 p.m. ET on CBS. The game is available through fuboTV – start your free trial here.
