Despite all of this, they are having trouble selling out their stadium for the upcoming game against the New York Jets, a game that features to teams with winning records and could very well meet in the postseason at the rate their both improving from game to game.

The Bengals announced Monday afternoon that a blackout could come if they don’t sell the more than 2,000 tickets that remain to this Sunday’s home game against the Jets.
