The Cincinnati Bengals took issue with the NFL pre-selling tickets to a potential neutral site AFC championship game between the Kansas City Chiefs and Buffalo Bills in Atlanta.

Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs did their part to earn their ticket to the AFC Championship, defeating the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday.

But Josh Allen and the Bills stumbled against Joe Burrow and the Bengals. The Bengals defeated the Bills, 27-10, on Sunday.

After the game, CBS reporter Tracy Wolfson asked Burrow, “Everyone talking about a neutral (site) AFC Championship Game, not even thinking about [the Bengals]. How much did that motivate you coming into this?”

Burrow only needed a few words to send a clear message.

“Better send those refunds,” Burrow said.

The NFL world was quick to react to Burrow’s perfect response:

“Don’t blame him for this,” Megan Salle wrote. “The NFL was wrong for asking people to pre-purchase tickets. Come on NFL. Be better.”

“The Bengals were selling AFC Championship tickets this week, but don’t tell Joe,” wrote one fan.

“Not a fan of questions implying teams somehow need extra motivation to play in the freaking playoffs but have a feeling Burrow’s excellent response will become almost as popular as ‘Who Dey?’ around Cincinnati,” tweeted Jay Posner.

“Me to the government every April,” joked one fan.

“Cold blooded and I love it!” Steven Tonthat wrote.

The Bengals will face the Chiefs next Sunday in a rematch of last year’s AFC championship game.
