Apparently enough Ohio football fans got tickets in their stockings yesterday.
The Bengals announced that Sunday’s game against the Ravens was sold out, meaning they won’t be blacked out on local television this season.
According to Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer, that marks the first time since 2009 the Bengals have sold out all their home games.
The Bengals have a streak of 10 straight sellouts and 15 of their last 17 (with last week’s extension getting them there). Of course, that seems like faint praise for a team that’s fighting for the No. 2 seed in the AFC playoffs.
