Cincinnati Bengals coach Zac Taylor gave the talk after the team went on the road and posted a big win against the Buffalo Bills in their playoff matchup on Sunday.
The Bengals’ victory meant that any plans for an AFC championship game at a neutral site were scrapped. Taylor sarcastically apologized for ruining every plan the NFL had.
«It’s hard because they have to formulate the plans for the coin tosses, formulate the plans for the neutral site games, and we keep screwing it up for everyone,» Taylor said, via NFL Network. «I hate that, for the people who have to put up with all the logistical issues, we keep messing it up.»

The AFC championship would have been played at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta if the Bills had beaten the Bengals due to the NFL ruling their Week 17 matchup not played due to Damar Hamlin’s collapse on the field.
Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow also dropped a cold line on the neutral site. He spoke with CBS’s Tracy Wolfson after the game and was asked about the talk of a neutral site for the conference championship.
«Better send those refunds,» Burrow said.

The first was a six-play, 79-yard drive that ended with a touchdown pass from Burrow to Ja’Marr Chase. After forcing Buffalo to punt, Burrow engineered a 10-play, 72-yard drive that ended with a 15-yard TD pass to Hayden Hurst.
