CINCINNATI (WXIX) - Miami Dolphins star wide receiver Tyreek Hill has a message for Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Eli Apple: “I owe you, boy.”

Hill made the comment Sunday when he was informed the Dolphins travel to Paycor Stadium for a Thursday Night Football matchup against Apple and the Bengals.

“Looking forward to the challenge. It’s going to be fun,” Hill said. “I can’t wait to go against Eli Apple, man. I owe you, boy. I owe you! I’m here. The Cheetah is here.”

Apple has not responded, yet.

FOX19 NOW Sports Director Joe Danneman was in the Bengals locker room Monday and noticed a heavy presence around Apple’s locker.

The trash talk dates back to last season’s AFC Championship game when Hill was then a member of the Kansas City Chiefs.

Following the Bengals’ come-from-behind win against Hill and the Chiefs, Apple went on Twitter and immediately started trolling the WR.

From retweets to even offering Super Bowl tickets, Apple did not let Hill forget the outcome of the game.

Apple even called Hill a “baby.”

Now, Hill has his sights set on revenge.

The Bengals (1-2) will debut their White Bengal uniforms for the primetime game against the undefeated Dolphins (3-0) on Thursday.

Fans going to the game are encouraged to wear white to match the players.
