The NFL has begun selling tickets to a potential Buffalo Bills vs. Kansas City Chiefs AFC Championship game. Despite the fact, the Bills still have to defeat the Cincinnati Bengals to advance to that game.
Bengals RB Joe Mixon wasn’t too happy with the league overlooking the Bengals and seemed ready to prove just how good Cincinnati could be.
Mixon was asked about the NFL already selling AFC Championship tickets. His response was angry due to the lack of respect he’s feeling, via Marshall Kramsky of WCPO in Cincinnati.
“To be honest, it’s disrespectful, but we’re not worried about that s**t,” Mixon said. “We got a game to play on Sunday, right? So you can’t count us out. We’re going to go out there on Sunday and we’re going to do what the hell we got to do to come back with that W. And then we’re going to see what they’re talking about.
Due to Bills safety Damar Hamlin’s scary injury in Week 17, the NFL altered the location of the AFC Championship game. If the Bills and Chiefs advance, they would play at the Falcons’ Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Over 50,000 tickets were purchased within the first 24 hours of being available, the league announced.
Ticket pre-sales for playoff games are common practice because it allows fans to prepare well in advance for the event. As of right now, you can purchase tickets for a possible AFC title game matchup between the Bengals and Jacksonville Jaguars in Cincinnati.
