Sell out deadline extended for Bengals vs. Vikings

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Approximately 3,500 tickets remain for the Cincinnati Bengals game against the Minnesota Vikings this Sunday at 1 p.m. at Paul Brown Stadium.

A Bengals win would clinch for Cincinnati the AFC North Division championship, and a playoff opener at home, should Baltimore lose or tie against New England later Sunday afternoon.

"We have tickets available on all levels of the stadium," said Andrew Brown, Bengals ticket sales manager. "We are working hard to close that gap, and if our fan response stays as strong as it has been so far this week, we can have a full house for the Vikings."

As a result, the Bengals have secured an extension from the NFL for the sellout deadline for Sunday's game. The standard deadline of 1 p.m. today (72 hours before kickoff) has been extended until tomorrow at 4 p.m.

If the game is a sellout by 4 p.m. on Friday, it will be televised in the Bengals home market here on FOX19.

Fans may purchase tickets by phone through the Bengals Ticket Hotline (513-621-8383), on-line through, or in person at Paul Brown Stadium.
