Chris Jones Throws Major Shade at Joe Burrow Ahead of Super Bowl
The Cincinnati Bengals fell short of a second straight trip to the Super Bowl this season after losing to the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship. Despite Cincinnati not being involved, that hasn't stopped the team from being brought up at Super Bowl Week, though.
Chiefs defender Chris Jones threw some serious shade at Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow when speaking with the media in Arizona on Monday night.
Jones was asked by reporters who his favorite quarterback in the league to sack is. He replied "Joe Burrow." Heavy.com writer Matt Lombardo said Jones' reply came "without hesitation," showing he has some pretty strong feelings on the matter.
Now, this is definitely a hard question to answer without upsetting someone. However, Jones could've been more diplomatic about it. Instead, he was quick to say Burrow's name, which indicates there's a bit of a quiet rivalry there.
Perhaps Jones' feud isn't with Burrow himself, but Cincinnati as a whole considering how these two teams have seen plenty of each other in recent years. Kansas City has gone just 1-3 in the Patrick Mahomes era against Joe Burrow and the Bengals, so no wonder Chiefs players don't like them.
