1. Ja'Marr Chase before Week 1: "I was about to call them the "Elves"

With the Bengals coming off a postseason run that saw Cincy reach the AFC Championship game only to fall three points (and three seconds) short of reaching their second Super Bowl in a row, cocky attitudes were high all around Ohio last midweek.

That's at least how Chase made it sound, as he was asked about the Bengals Week 1 game against the Brown and all he had to say was "It feels like a regular game to me, no different."

That's not bad, but what came after that statement is what broke the internet. Per Cleveland.com, quoth Chase: "I was about to call them the Elves."

Of course, the... Browns were 8-2 entering last Sunday and Cleveland (the Cleveland Browns, just in case) exited it boasting a 9-2 record in their last 11 meetings and a solid 5-1 against QB Joe Burrow.

Chase was referring to the Brown's logo. He was asked if he thinks the elf logo is silly, to which Chase said "Uh, it's funny--it's just different, I guess."

When Chase went to sleep on Sunday, the Browns were 1-0 and the Bengals were 0-1 with the "Elves" beating the Cats 24-3 and Chase grabbing five passes (on nine targets) for 39 yards. Uh, oh.
