Bengals announce third straight sellout
By Jamison Hensley
Fans are beginning to show their support for the Cincinnati Bengals, who are off to a 3-1 start this season.
The Bengals announced Friday that Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins is officially a sellout. It was estimated on Tuesday that between 5,000 and 10,000 tickets remained for the game.
This is a significant development for the Bengals. Cincinnati sold out two of eight games at Paul Brown Stadium last season and has now matched that total after two home games this year. Dating back to last year, the Bengals have sold out their past three home games.
Perhaps the Who Dey Nation is warming back up to the Bengals, who are looking to put together back-to-back winning seasons for the first time since 1981-82. Before these three straight sellouts, the Bengals had 10 of 11 games blacked out from the middle of the 2010 season through most of 2011.
