Is there a Bengals bandwagon, and are people jumping on it?

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

There was a river of orange and black - with pools of yellow - that flooded downtown Cincinnati Sunday. Bengals (and Steelers) fans turned out for the first sold out game of the season.

FOX19 met 4 year-old Ryland Day, going to a Bengals game for the first time with his dad, Dion.

"I've been a Bengals fan for 10 years and I haven't missed a home game in 6 years," said Dion.

Unfortunately for the team, not all folks are quite so loyal.  2010's season home opener brought in about 64,000 fans.  This season's home opener saw 20,000 fans less.  But that was before the Bengals got off to a winning start.

Derek Seal of Dayton has made the drive to Paul Brown Stadium a couple times a season.  He says, despite the loss to Pittsburgh, he'll be coming down more often to root on his team.

" I think people are excited about the Dalton - Green combination and I think everybody is waiting to see what happens. You got a new, energetic squad, you got Marvin Lewis, bring it on," said Seal.

We'll all have to wait and see how much noise is in the jungle for the remainder of the season home games.  Longtime fans we talk to say, the more the merrier.

The next home game is Nov. 27 when the Bengals host the Cleveland Browns.  Tickets start at $65.
