Despite the recent success of consecutive playoff appearances, as well as a 5-2 start this season, the Bengals are having trouble selling out their stadium for the upcoming game against the New York Jets, a game that features to teams with winning records and could very well meet in the postseason at the rate their both improving from game to game.
The Bengals announced Monday afternoon that a blackout could come if they don’t sell the more than 2,000 tickets that remain to this Sunday’s home game against the Jets. It is only the second game at Paul Brown Stadium in a month, so one would think fans would be packing the stadium in hopes of seeing their team improve to 6-2 and staying atop the AFC North by 2+ games.
