Watching the Bengals throttle the defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants on Sunday by a score of 31-13 was one of the most fulfilling moments I’ve had in my lifetime as a Bengals fan. The only unfortunate thing about Sunday’s memorable win was Paul Brown Stadium having largea number of empty seats while the game was blacked-out on TV, leaving many in Who Dey Nation with no way to view the game.
Going forward, this will hopefully not be the case, as the Bengals announced today that the December 9th home game against the Dallas Cowboys is sold out, and the game will be broadcast on live TV. There are however still tickets available for the November 25th game against the Carson Palmer-led Oakland Raiders, and also the home finale against the Baltimore Ravens on December 30th, a game that will likely have heavy playoff implications for one, if not both AFC North teams.
It’s up to the fans to help the Bengals keep this momentum up and help this team have a late-season surge that gets them to a winning record, something they haven’t done in back-to-back years in over two decades, and possibly a repeat trip to the playoffs.
