Kroger bought 1200 tix to #SDvsCIN and will distribute to military families. Does not guarantee sellout.

The Cincinnati Bengals are having trouble selling out their playoff game against the San Diego Chargers to avoid a blackout, but Kroger, a grocery store chain, has seen an opportunity to do something nice and help for military families, help the Bengals get closer to avoiding that sellout, and pick up some good PR along the way.
The Bengals were one of a few teams that have had trouble avoiding a blackout as well as the Green Bay Packers and Indianapolis Colts. The Packers are reported to have sold out and avoided the blackout, but it remains to be seen if that will happen to the Bengals.
The Bengals have a chance to beat the Chargers and potentially make a playoff run with one of the most talented rosters in the NFL. The last time these two teams met in the playoffs it was Ken Anderson leading the Bengals in a victory in a record setting cold game against Dan Fouts and Air Coryell.
