The Kansas City Chiefs are set to host the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium…
Or, as many are calling it these days, “Burrowhead Stadium.”
In case you missed it, that’s the nickname that everyone’s been giving the Chiefs’ home stadium. It’s a reference to Joe Burrow’s dominance over the team.
Since joining the Cincinnati Bengals as the first overall pick in 2020, Burrow has played Kansas City three times. And he’s beaten them in each of those matchups, including last year’s AFC Championship Game at Arrowhead.
It’s not easy to beat Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs once, let alone three straight times. And while two of those games took place in Cincinnati, it hasn’t stopped people from renaming Kansas City’s stadium in honor of the Bengals’ quarterback.

Heck, even Chiefs players have adopted the nickname!
While speaking with reporters ahead of Sunday’s highly-anticipated battle, Chiefs star defensive tackle Chris Jones ended his press conference by saying, “See you all at Burrowhead Stadium.”
It sounds like the Chiefs have caught wind of the nickname and are now using it as bulletin board material. That could prove to be bad news for the Bengals, as they last thing they want to see is a fired up Mahomes with some extra motivation to reclaim his home stadium.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS?
