The rivalry between the Cincinnati Bengals and Kansas City Chiefs will enter its next chapter this Sunday. The stakes for this contest are high as these two AFC powerhouses square off for the chance to make the Super Bowl.

The pregame trash talk before this battle is already in full effect, and Chiefs linebacker Willie Gay is the latest to join in.

Gay was asked by reporters what impresses him the most about the Bengals' offense. He surprisingly replied "nothing."

It's one thing to handle this question professionally and say you don't want to hype up the other team. Instead, the veteran took the more controversial route by saying there's nothing impressive about Cincinnati's clearly talented unit.

This answer is a bit surprising considering Gay saw up close what Joe Burrow and company are capable of in last year's AFC Championship Game, which Kansas City lost in overtime after blowing a double-digit lead. In fact, Burrow owns a perfect 3-0 record against the Chiefs in his career, so he's had little trouble taking care of business against Gay and his teammates before.

It's safe to say Gay's words may come back to bite him, especially since the Bengals are only 1-point road underdogs on FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds.
