Bengals can't sell out Palmer reunion
By Jamison Hensley
It appears that Cincinnati football fans aren't interested in the hot-again Bengals or the return of Carson Palmer.
The Bengals announced Sunday's game against the Raiders did not sell out and will not be televised in a 75-mile radius of Paul Brown Stadium. The Bengals (5-5), who have won two straight to get back into the playoff hunt, face Palmer for the first time since they traded their franchise quarterback last year.
This marks the second straight game that the Bengals have been blacked out. The Bengals didn't sell out their home game against the defending Super Bowl champion Giants on Nov. 11. Before that game, Cincinnati had sold out five games in a row dating to last season.
