CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The Cincinnati Bengals have announced that Sunday's game against the Baltimore Ravens is a sell out.
That means the 4:15 p.m. game will be shown live on local TV.
If the Bengals win, they will make the playoffs as a wild card team. If they lose, they can make the playoffs if the Jets lose or tie in Miami and if the Raiders lose or tie their home game with San Diego. Another way is if the Jets lose and the Broncos lose their home game against Kansas City.
The team has made a strong push this week to sell out the game, offering buy one get one free tickets for season ticket holders. Players showed up to fans waiting in the ticket line on Monday and thanked them for their support.
"It just kind of creates a buzz around town. Whether or not you're the one going to the game I think everybody's excited that there's a game like happening in Cincinnati this weekend," said Eric Koch or Koch Sporting Goods.
"When's the last time we had this? Three times in the last 21 years, something like that? Is a big game," said fan Robert Little.
This is only the second Bengals sell out at Paul Brown Stadium this season. The only other game to sell out was against Pittsburgh.
