Sunday's Bengals game still not sold out, may be blacked out

Posted by Trina Edwards - email

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Bengals ticket officials say that without a "significant increase" in the pace of ticket sales this weekend, Sunday's game against the Texas may be blacked out.

NFL policy states that a game must be sold out 72 hours prior to kick-off, the game will be blacked out in that market. That means the Bengals have until 1 p.m. Thursday to sell out the game. The Bengals' market includes Cincinnati, Dayton and Lexington, Ky. 

The Bengals have sold out their last 46 regular-season and postseason games in time for local television coverage. The last Bengals home game not to sell out was against Houston on Nov. 9, 2003.

The Bengals are in first place in the AFC North after their win last Sunday against the Ravens.
