The Bengals are 5-2 and currently sitting atop the AFC North division by two games after beating a playoff-caliber Detroit Lions team on the road.
Despite all of this, they 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 flocking to the stadium to see their favorite team play.
With the Jets coming off a signature win at home against the New England Patriots, and the game Sunday will undoubtedly be close and hard-fought throughout.
Hopefully, it will be one that fans get a chance to see on TV.
