The Cincinnati Bengals and Buffalo Bills are battling it out in the Divisional Round with a trip to the AFC Championship on the line. Bengals superstar Ja'Marr Chase made an early impact on the game, scoring an opening drive touchdown in the first quarter.

Chase usually lets his play do the talking, but that didn't stop him from taking a major shot at Bills quarterback Josh Allen before kickoff.

Speaking to NFL insider Kimberley A. Martin before kickoff, Chase discussed the differences between his QB Joe Burrow and Allen. This was likely only meant to hype up his gunslinger, but undoubtedly came off as major shade for his opponent.

"Burrow is a true quarterback. Look, Josh Allen's a great QB too, but Joe can do it all. Josh Allen's game revolves around just being a dual-threat, running QB. That's not bad. But Joe's more of a Peyton Manning, Tom Brady-type of QB," said Chase.

Summing up Allen as simply a dual-threat QB is a stretch, but the diss is effective. Allen has thrown at least 4,000 passing yards and 35 touchdowns in the past three years. He's certainly a quarterback that gets it done with his arm. But, Chase will always go to bat for Burrow.

The game features two of the most exciting, dynamic quarterbacks in football. Sit back and enjoy the ride.
