Kansas City Chiefs LB Willie Gay: 'Nothing' impressive about Cincinnati Bengals offense
The AFC championship game will be a rematch of Week 13, when the Cincinnati Bengals upset the Kansas City Chiefs. The Chiefs are narrowly favored at home as quarterback Patrick Mahomes is dealing with a high ankle sprain, but he is on track to start his fifth straight AFC title game.
On the other side of the ball, linebacker Willie Gay said he is fully prepared for the offense that beat the Chiefs' defense for 431 yards back in December.
When speaking to reporters on Thursday ahead of Sunday's AFC championship, Gay was asked what impresses him about the Bengals' offense, which includes MVP finalist Joe Burrow, Pro Bowl wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase and powerhouse running back Joe Mixon.
"Nothing," Gay said matter-of-factly.
The defender's one-word response follows an ethos that head coach Andy Reid has been preaching to his team.
"Like Coach Reid say, we don't do no talking," he said. "We just go handle business when it's time to go."
Not many words from #Chiefs LB Willie Gay today but one thing stood out.
“What impresses you about that Bengals offense?”

In the first matchup this season, Burrow accounted for 332 yards and scored three touchdowns. The game was Chase's first back from injury and he had seven receptions for 97 yards.
Gay had five tackles in the game — including one tackle for a loss — and one pass deflection.
