The Cincinnati Bengals regular season finale at Paul Brown Stadium boils down to this: Win and you're in. Lose and without significant help with teams like the Miami Dolphins, Kansas City Chiefs and/or the San Diego Chargers, you're out. Likely due to the most critical game of the year and perhaps the most crucial regular season finale since Cincinnati's loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2006, along with the front office offering season ticket holders a buy one ticket and get one free deal, Bengals fans are gobbling up tickets on Monday.
According to a report by Paul Dehner Jr. as CBSSports.com, the Bengals ticket office has been busy on Monday with a "few thousand tickets sold Monday morning alone."
Bengals fans formed massive lines at the ticket windows Monday attempting to purchase "buy one, get one free" tickets offered to season ticket holders for Sunday's big game against Baltimore. Director of Sales and Public Affairs Jeff Berding said the phones have been ringing off the hook with a few thousand tickets sold Monday morning alone.
