After only selling out all of two games during the 2011 season, there was a lot of optimism heading into 2012 that the Bengals fanbase would begin selling-out Paul Brown Stadium again in hopes of getting to see their young, up-and-coming Bengals squad compete for a repeat trip to the NFL postseason, as well as an AFC North crown. While those expectations have taken a hit in the midst of teams’ three-game losing streak, fans aren’t giving up hope quite yet, as the Bengals announced that Sunday’s game against the Denver Broncos is a sellout. It’s now the fifth-straight sellout dating back to Week 17 of 2011.
If the Bengals can score the upset win on Sunday, expect to see that streak continue. Even with a loss, next weeks’ game against the defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants should be sold out, as well as the following home game against the Carson Palmer-led Oakland Raiders. But for now, the Broncos are the biggest concern and the Bengals will need every last screaming Bengals fan to help rally them to a win this Sunday and hopefully save their season.
