The Cincinnati Bengals are having a tough time selling their allotment of tickets for their first game in the NFL playoffs, which we now know will be against the San Diego Chargers. By winning the AFC North, they’ve already known that they’ll be hosting at least one game, and tickets to said game have been available to the publicly almost a week now.

Despite this, the team announced last night that more than 10,000 tickets for the game remain unsold. Seats are available on all three levels of PBS. If the game sells out by the deadline to be set by the NFL, it will be televised in the Bengals home market on CBS affiliates WKRC-TV (Channel 12) in Cincinnati, WHIO-TV (Channel 7) in Dayton and WKYT-TV (Channel 27) in Lexington, Ky.

If the game does not sell out by the deadline, it will be blacked out in the Cincinnati home market. Tickets for Sunday’s game may be purchased on-line through Ticketmaster, and fans can quickly reach the correct Ticketmaster web page through a prominent link on the home page of
