Joe Brrr means business.
Joe Burrow, the star quarterback for the Cincinnati Bengals, has finally addressed the trash talk he received during the offseason from the Kansas City Chiefs, a prominent rival team.
Despite this, Burrow’s Bengals have managed to maintain a 3-1 record against the Chiefs, which includes a significant win in the 2021 AFC Championship Game at Arrowhead.
However, the Chiefs exacted their revenge in the 2022 AFC title game, leading them to secure a victory in Super Bowl 57 against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Throughout this rivalry, there has been well-documented trash talk from Patrick Mahomes and his teammate Travis Kelce, directed towards Ja’Marr Chase, a wideout for the Bengals.
Chase made headlines recently when he proclaimed Burrow as the best quarterback in the game, dismissing Mahomes with his remark, “Pat Who?”
When addressing Chase, Kelce sternly warned him against disrespecting their quarterback and emphasized the importance of being capable of supporting any trash talk he engages in.
In an interview with Complex Sports, Burrow chose not to engage in trash talk and instead delivered a concise message to the Bengals’ top AFC rivals.
“The best thing about that is it’s all settled on the field. So we’ll see them in December.”
Joe Burrow's response to the Chiefs trash talk is simple: "We'll see them in December." ?

Once again, for the third consecutive year, the Chiefs and Bengals are set to face off towards the end of the regular season.
This eagerly anticipated Week 17 clash will be held at Arrowhead on New Year’s Eve at 4:25 p.m. EST, although surprisingly not during the prime time slot.
In the 2021 season, the Bengals, led by Burrow, triumphed over the Chiefs in Week 17, and then repeated their victory four weeks later to secure the AFC championship. The rivalry was reignited in Week 13, where the Bengals managed to hold on and claim a 27-24 win.
However, in a thrilling turn of events, Mahomes and the Kansas City team were able to conquer their Kryptonite, sealing a last-second triumph of 23-20 in the AFC Championship Game.
Needless to say, the highly anticipated Part 5 of the Mahomes vs. Burrow showdown on December 31st cannot arrive soon enough.
