Cincinnati Mayor Aftab Pureval proclaimed «They Gotta Play Us Day» in his city on Sunday to celebrate the Bengals taking on the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC championship for the second straight year.
But Pureval didn’t make the official proclamation without throwing a shade at Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes.
The mayor said that considering Joe Burrow’s 3-0 record against Mahomes, including last year’s AFC championship at Arrowhead Stadium, which the Bengals and Pureval nicknamed «Burrowhead,» officials asked the quarterback of the Bengals «to have a paternity test to confirm if he is [Mahomes’] dad.»

Pureval also shredded Kansas City overall.
«Kansas City is named after its neighboring state, which is, you know, a little weird,» he said.
Of course, the city is in Missouri, not Kansas.
