Bengals’ RB Joe Mixon blasts NFL for discourteous act prior to Divisional round game vs Bills

Joe Mixon, running back of the Cincinnati Bengals, has found himself in disagreement yet again with the National Football League. This time it is regarding the NFLs sale of tickets to the potential AFC Championship game between the Chiefs and Bills in Atlanta.

When asked about this situation, Mixon said,I mean, to be honest, its disrespectful. Were not worried about that st. Weve got a game to play on Sunday, right? So you cant count us out. Weve got a game to play on Sunday. All this stuff, that doesn’t mean st. Were gonna go out there on Sunday and do what the hell we gotta do to get that [win], then were gonna see what theyre talking about.

The reason for this frustration is the fact that the Bengals are scheduled to face the Bills in the AFC Divisional Round playoff game on Sunday. This is a rematch of a Week 17 matchup that had to be canceled due to Buffalo safety Damar Hamlin suffering cardiac arrest on the field.

Hamlin, who was eventually released from the hospital, has since been able to spend time with his team as they prepare for the playoffs.

Mixon’s grievances with the NFL do not end here as he had previously expressed his frustration with the league’s handling of the playoff format.

This was in reference to the NFL’s decision to decide the AFC North Division by a coin flip if the Bengals had lost to the Ravens in Week 18. Fortunately, Cincinnati’s win in the finale made the NFL’s ruling moot.

As the Bengals prepare to battle it out with the Bills, Mixon is hoping that the NFL will come to understand that his team should not be counted out just yet.

Indeed, with a possible win in the upcoming game, the Bengals could still make it to the AFC Championship, despite the NFL selling tickets to a presumed Chiefs vs Bills matchup.
