Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow has only played three seasons in the NFL, but has already defeated three teams at least three times.
Two are AFC North rivals: the Ravens (4-2, including the playoffs) and the Steelers (3-2). And Burrow also has a 3-0 record against the Chiefs
Burrow and the Bengals’ success against the Chiefs certainly got Cincinnati players feeling confident for Sunday’s AFC Championship Game.
That contest will take place at Arrowhead Stadium, but a video of the Divisional Bengals’ playoff victory over the Bills showed cornerback Mike Hilton sharing a new nickname for the stadium.
Fellow defensive players Eli Apple and Cam Taylor-Britt seemed to like that play on Burrow’s name.
Apple kinghe tweeted that video earlier this week, when he wasn’t trolling Bills players (you may recall Apple did the same thing at Tyreek Hill last year).
Hilton retweeted a video from NFL Films that showed him using “Burrowhead”.
Not surprisingly, Bengals fans used “Burrowhead” on social media.
“Burrowhead” is catching on, and Chiefs defensive back Justin Reid was asked about it Wednesday. His response: “I think everyone has seen it, we’re going to let our game on the pitch speak for itself.”
And the Chiefs Twitter account didn’t directly respond to ‘Burrowhead’ chatter, but it was pretty clear that’s why this was shared.
