Tyreek Hill already trash-talking Eli Apple
If Tyreek Hill ever decides to move on from football, he has a career in fight promotions. The Dolphins receiver, fresh off helping Miami to a 21-19 upset of Buffalo, was reminded after the game that his team's next matchup was at Cincinnati for "Thursday Night Football." He briefly gave a boilerplate response after hearing of the Dolphins' next opponent before seemingly remembering Eli Apple plays cornerback for the Bengals. "Can't wait to go against Eli Apple," Hill said. "I owe you, boy. I owe you. I'm here. The Cheetah is here. That's it." Once Tyreek Hill was informed the Dolphins are playing the Bengals Thursday, he immediately started talking trash to Eli Apple #Bengals #Dolphins"I owe you, boy" pic.twitter.com/FYkTa7c9k8— Yianni Kourakis (@WPBF_Yianni) MORE: NFL power rankings: Dolphins overtake Bills at No. 1; Packers, Jaguars jump up as 49ers, Chargers tumble for Week 4 Hill clearly remembers his and Apple's last battle, when the former was still a member of the Chiefs. Kansas City lost to Cincinnati twice in the span of 29 days, in Week 17 of the NFL season and again in the AFC championship game. The Bengals won both contests by a combined six points. In the latter meeting, Apple had a key goal-line tackle on Hill that ended up being decisive in a 27-24 overtime victory. A score would have made it 28-10 Chiefs at halftime; instead, the score remained 21-10. What a stop by the @Bengals defense to end the half! #NFLPlayoffs #RuleTheJungle📺: #CINvsKC on CBS📱: https://t.co/dKNUFkxkbU pic.twitter.com/Rxtmq9cnBt— NFL (@NFL) It certainly didn't help that Apple — who has an abrasive relationship with opposing receivers — called out Hill later that evening. He further antagonized him and then-Chiefs teammate Mecole Hardman, saying he would hook them up with tickets to the Super Bowl. Oh yea that chiefs cheetah pack finna hit way crazier the 2nd time 🔥😮💨— Eli Apple (@EliApple) MORE: Joe Burrow off social media amid Bengals' 0-2 start, vows team will 'get going' Hill will certainly want to get his revenge on Apple and the defending AFC champions. To that end, the Dolphins will want to get him more involved in the passing game: He had only two receptions for 33 yards against the Bills on Sunday. Both are storylines to watch as Hill aims for revenge against Apple on "Thursday Night Football."
