For the first time in four years, the Cincinnati Bengals have sold out their entire home schedule for the regular season.
According to ESPN,
The Bengals’ ticket office announced Thursday afternoon that Sunday’s regular-season finale against the Baltimore Ravens would be a sellout, keeping them safe of blackout status for the eighth time this season.
Last season, Cincinnati’s home games against the New York Giants and Oakland Raiders were blacked out due to lagging ticket sales. Cincinnati has now sold out 10 straight home games, and 15 of its last 17.
But there’s even more news for the Bengals. This is the first time in the franchise’s history that the team has made the postseason three straight years.
With last week’s win over the Vikings and a loss by the Miami Dolphins, they clinched their third consecutive postseason berth.
What do you think of the Bengals’ (10-5) chances this postseason? Right now, there is still a chance that the team can get the number 2 seed. With a win on Sunday and a Patriots loss, they become the 2 seed and have a first-round bye. If both teams win, the Bengals remain in the 3 spot.
