Bengals Giants game doesn't sell out, won't air in Cincinnati - Cincinnati News, FOX19-WXIX TV

Bengals game short of sellout for first time this season

Posted: Updated:
CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Ticket sales for Sunday's Bengals home game against the New York Giants remain several thousand short of a sellout, and thus the game will not be televised in the Bengals home markets.

This week's game is the first of five Bengals regular-season home games this season not to sell out.

Remaining tickets for the Giants game can be obtained by calling the Bengals Ticket Hotline at 513-621-8383 or by going online to Bengals.com. Additionally, the Paul Brown Stadium ticket office will be open until 5 p.m. today, from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Friday and from 9 a.m.-12 p.m. on Saturday. On Sunday, the Paul Brown Stadium north ticket office will open at 9 a.m.

The Giants are defending Super Bowl champions, and this week the Bengals become only the second team to host back-to-back visits by the Manning brothers, as Giants QB Eli Manning will appear following a game last week against Denver and QB Peyton Manning.

In conjunction with Veterans Day commemorations across the nation, the Bengals on Sunday will present a number of "Salute to Service" activities, including crowd participation in a stadium-wide card stunt. 

The game was scheduled to air on FOX19. Instead, we will air Dallas at Philadelphia Eagles starting at 4:00 p.m.
