The Cincinnati Bengals kept their sellout streak of 2013 alive today by announcing that Sunday’s game against the 4-0 New England Patriots will be a sellout:
The team has yet to incur a blackout this year, but they’ll need to get a win this Sunday and avoid a 2-3 start to their season.
If that happens, there’s a good chance their next home game against the New York Jets on October 27th will be blacked-out.
The Jets will likely come into Paul Brown Stadium with a sub .500 record, and if the Bengals can’t rebound from last week’s demoralizing loss to the Cleveland Browns, it may ruin the team’s hopes of selling-out every home game in 2013.
