Bengals sell out home game against the Jets

Only two games this weekend pit winning teams against each other.  One of those two games narrowly avoided a local blackout.

The 5-2 Bengals have announced that Sunday’s game against the 4-3 Jets is a sellout.

“We have had great home games thus far this season, and our fans have played a real role in our wins with the atmosphere they’ve helped create,” Bengals executive vice president Katie Blackburn said in a release.  “We look forward to another great environment with a full house this Sunday.”

As of Monday, roughly 2,000 tickets remained.

The Bengals have now sold out six straight home games.  More sellouts should be coming, if the team can keep pushing toward the unprecedented feat of three straight playoff appearances.

    Why is that something to be proud of? Should have been happening all along as it does with other teams (RAVENS)! All it really does is speak to the sorry fans that only come out when they win!!!!!

    How in the world can the Cleveland Browns continue to sell out, yet Bengals have a tough time moving tickets every year? Don’t say it’s because of the owner, because the Browns had a terrible owner in Lerner, for years. Maybe it has to do with fair weather fans. Don’t forget that the Browns will always be OHIO’s team.

    As we all knew it would. But it did give the Steeler fans some excitement. They don’t have much now adays considering their team blows and will be a basement dweller with Cleveland.

    Yeah, like I said: No blackout.

    So at 5-2 and leading the division, the Bengals have managed six straight home sellouts. Impressive.

    And at 2-4, how long is the Steelers’ home sellout streak? :)

    Hard not to like the Browns. I mean, they stink, but I still like them. The Bengals? Can’t stand them, OR Chris Collingsworth.

    Are you talking about the Purple Browns? They’re in Baltimore now. The longest residing Ohio NFL team now is the Bengals.

    Twenty years of losing and no playoff wins has caused every Bengal fan to question whether or not it wants to support it’s sorry ass owner, Mike Brown. Even when the team wins, we realize who the money goes to. Sorry, you can’t blame Cincinnati for not supporting a tyrant like Brown.

    I see you don’t like a guy named Chris Collingsworth but how do you feel about Chris Collinsworth?

  15. doctorrustbelt says: Oct 24, 2013 5:02 PM

    Yeah… Andy Dalton (below average #2 and #3 wr) is holding the team back by being….

    6th in the NFL in passing yards
    7th in the NFL in completion percentage
    10th in the NFL in touchdowns
    10th in the NFL in yards per game
    10th in the NFL in passing yards per attempt
    11th in the NFL in QB Rating

    6-2 after Sunday! Who Dey!

  17. bengaldiplomat says: Oct 24, 2013 5:06 PM

    To the poster on hating the Bengals…It is Cris Collinsworth. Get the name right!

    Also….Cincinnati and Dayton markets do equal 3 million (media keeps these separate though they are as close as Dallas/Ft. Worth metro).

    I watched the seating chart for available tickets all week….this game was “slow” to sell out because for the most part all that was left was single seats all over the place and a few top rows in 3 sections.

    You might be right about fair weather fans but the Bengals..you know….. actually win some games

    As a Bengal fan I hate that we cant have a great fan base and I cant stand band wagon fans and people who blame mike brown if I had to say Carson Palmer quitting on our city really hurt. I myself would love to be a season ticket holder but with with 3 children and a not so good paying job. I have to cheer for my team at home. Whodey

  20. 303bengalguy says: Oct 24, 2013 5:16 PM

    bengaldiplomat – if you took Dayton for Cincy, Cleveland will also claim Akron/Kent/etc… so it’s really a wash.

    But god hates Cleveland and misery loves company so they gloat here – often.

    Plus like Sam Wyche said, “you’re not in Cleveland!” so you have that going for you…

  21. jetsjetsjetsnow says: Oct 24, 2013 5:17 PM

    JETS 5-3
    bengals 5-3

    Oh & Jets are making the playoffs…

  22. doctorrustbelt says: Oct 24, 2013 5:22 PM

    So… you blame Carson Palmer more than mike brown?!?

    LOL… idiot!!!

    Hahaha! Easy question.

    The Browns fans have low standards for their team. Winning 4 to 5 games per season is a winning season in Cleveland. They will sellout every year because 4 to 5 wins is GREAT for them.
    BUT,
    not in Cincinnati. We expect more. playoffs and division leads or titles alone is not enough for us. When the Bengals start making more noise in the playoffs, then we will probably see those season ticket holders march back, until then, Nah!
    We’re better than the DawgPound. Our players fall asleep on the field when playing the Browns.

  24. larryravor says: Oct 24, 2013 5:39 PM

    If the Cleveland Browns have sellouts, then what are all of the empty seats? I have not only seen them on TV, but also in person at that dump they call a stadium.

    As to “the single seat” excuse, all stadiums have single seats. Sorry, this excuse doesn’t hold water.

  30. joetoronto says: Oct 25, 2013 5:28 AM

    Step one is to admit you have a problem, making excuses for Andy Dalton will only hold you back, he’s clearly NOT the guy.

    But don’t stop denying it, you can talk about it when it’s too late.

    SMH.

  31. crownofthehelmet says: Oct 25, 2013 10:34 AM

    Completely disagree with the Dalton bashing, he is the perfect QB for the Bengals.

    – every signle Steelers, Browns, and Ravens fan

    You know what? As true football fans, we can smack talk all day long. But I am not going there. As a true BENGALS fan, I am just going to say it is nice to see the team going on the right direction. Andy Dalton, while not an “elite” QB, has done something that our former QB who was supposed to be elite was not able to do. Take us to back to back playoffs. Yes, Dalton has AJ Green, but Palmer had a plethora of weapons and could do nothing with them…..and was a quitter. Matter of fact, Dalton is the only QB besides Ken Anderson to ever lead us to 2 straight playoffs! No, I am not seeing Dalton through rose colored glasses. I have said for the last year that what Dalton lacks is composure. It causes him to jump the pocket and get rid of the ball too quick. I have seen traces of composure this year, and his maturity and composure have finally started to come out! He has grown this year, and over the last 2 games, I have finally seen in him what we needed to see in him. Maturity, composure, confidence, and determination backed up with ability! And finally Gruden called a game spreading the ball instead of trying to force it to AJ.. We have seen multiple injuries on both sides of the ball, especially defensively, causing us to have to score more points, and he has kept up. We are finally starting to gel as a team, and I for one am excited! WHO DEY!

    Bengal fans apoligize for nothing….steelers and browns fans need to worry more about your sorry ass teams than about the division leading bengals – who dey!

  34. gsmith1031 says: Oct 26, 2013 6:33 AM

    @jetsjetsjetsnow. Come on dumbass you really think that sorry ass jets team will make the playoffs? Your awesome QB has a hard time winning back to back games so where does that put you at the end of the season? Not in the playoffs. Lol. This is a Bengals article go look up some articles on the suck ass Jets. Oh wait there ain’t any. Explains why your looking into Bengals articles.

    @gsmith1031 But isn’t the sorry @ss Jets one of the reasons why the Bungals have yet to win a play off game in the last two decades? The same year that they Jets were not supposed to make the playoffs was the same year that they beat the Bengals in the wildcard round.

    11th in the NFL in QB Rating”

    I’m a Bengals fan and I think dalton still has room to improve but you have to give the offensive line, a good running back and a very good receiving core for his good stats. Imagine if he was on a team like the patriots, with average defense, average front line, and below average receiving core. He would not be a top 25 quarter back. I’m not a Dalton hater but you have to put it into perspective here a little.

    PFF and some other sources rank the Bengals offensive line THE BEST in the nfl. Sanu, Jones, & Eifert along with AJ and 1 really good running back in berard and another better than average RB Ben-Jarvis, you have a setup where almost any quarterback should flurish. Andy Dalton in my eyes is just good enough to get the wins. Lets see if he can get better.
