This is a great idea by the Bengals to get those two games sold-out and have Paul Brown Stadium rocking while the team looks to punch it’s ticket to the playoffs. The Ravens game should draw a sellout, but the Vikings game might be tough for fans, especially with Christmas three days later.
Not to mention it;s a 2-8 team with an offense that’s painful to watch, mainly because of the painful injuries Adrian Peterson is suffering from that have him actually looking human. Nevertheless, Cincinnati needs the best home-field advantage possible going forward in order to not only help them win the AFC North, but even go undefeated at home this year.
At 5-0 in PBS, they’re already three game away from accomplishing that feat, which they haven’t done since 1988.
You can imagine why they think accomplishing that is just as important.
