Bengals sellout streak comes to a close

Bengals fans are going to have to go to the game to see the matchup with Buffalo Sunday, as the teams sellout streak is coming to an end.

The Bengals have not said how many tickets remain. The last blackout was Nov. 9, 2003, against Houston.

“Sales have been slow this week and not a lot of progress has been made. The pace has slowed considerably,” ticket manager Andrew Brown said. “There’s not a lot of momentum right now to move tickets in bulk.”

A blackout means the game will not air in a 75-mile radius, which includes CBS affiliates in Cincinnati, Dayton and Lexington. The Columbus affiliate is airing the Browns-Jaguars game but the Louisville affiliate will show the Bengals game.

DirecTV is obligated to follow NFL rules, so the game will not be part of its Sunday Ticket package. Starting at 12:01 a.m. Monday, NFL.com will make the game available for free as part of its Game Rewind package for 72 hours.
