Bengals granted 24-hour extension to sell out Sunday's game

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The Bengals were given a 24 hour extension to sell out Sunday's game against Miami and avoid a black out.

Games must normally be sold out 72 hours prior to kick off to lift the black out, but the NFL has shortened this week's deadline to 48 hours, giving the club until 1 p.m. Friday.

"The team is hoping for strong sales over the next 24-hour period to help lift the blackout," said Andrew Brown, manager of ticket sales."We have less than 2000 seats remaining and sales have been steady, but we can use a strong finish to the week. The weather looks great for Sunday, and we hope fans will decide that Paul Brown Stadium will be the perfect place to enjoy it."

The Bengals have sold out their last 55 consecutive regular-season and postseason games, a franchise-record streak.

To purchase tickets for Miami, fans may call the Bengals Ticket Hotline at 866-621-TDTD (8383) or go online to
