Bengals vs. Saints officially blacked out

As expected, the Cincinnati Bengals announced that Sunday's game against the defending Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints will be blacked out.

The Bengals failed to sell out the game this week at Paul Brown Stadium and, as a result, it will not be shown on television in the Cincinnati area.

This is the second consecutive home game in which the Bengals (2-9) couldn't fill their stadium. They are also in danger of not selling out their final two home games against the Cleveland Browns (Dec. 19) and San Diego Chargers (Dec. 26) to end the 2010 season.
