Orlando Brown Jr. keeps Cincinnati Mayor in line for Chiefs-Bengals game announcement
In one of the strangest bits of the Kansas City Chiefs vs. Cincinnati Bengals rivalry last season, Cincinnati Mayor Aftab Pureval made a cringe-worthy video that was a big talking point ahead of the AFC Championship Game.
During the Lamar Hunt Trophy presentation, Chiefs TE Travis Kelce delivered an iconic verbal beatdown of the public servant.
“I’ve got some wise words for that Cincinnati Mayor,” Kelce said. “Know your role and shut your mouth, you jabroni.”
Well, now it seems the Bengals are making a bit of fun of the Mayor’s misstep.
To announce their 2023 NFL season rematch with Kansas City (learn more about the game here), Cincinnati enlisted the help of ex-Chief and new Bengals LT Orlando Brown Jr. to keep Pureval in line. Check it out:

“The Bengals play the Chiefs Week 17. . . and I’ve got nothing else to add,” Pureval says.
“Yeah, I think that was better than the last time,” Brown Jr. declares.
It’s safe to say that the Mayor knew his role this time around. The whole interaction between Pureval and Brown Jr. had a very “Parks and Rec” vibe if you ask me.
I think the bulletin board material will be kept at a minimum early on between these two clubs. As we inch closer to their matchup on New Year’s Eve, that could certainly change.
