Cincinnati Bengals Fall "Several Thousand Tickets Short" Of A Sellout Against Oakland

Chris Trotman

The Cincinnati Bengals will be blacked out locally when they host the Oakland Raiders this Sunday.

Well. Carson Palmer's return isn't that interesting after all. The Cincinnati Bengals announced on Friday that the team failed to sellout against the Oakland Raiders this Sunday, meaning that this weekend's game won't be shown on television in the local markets. According to the team's press release, several thousand tickets remain for Sunday's game, now blacked out in the home markets of Cincinnati, Dayton and Lexington, Kentucky.

This is the second consecutive blackout for the Bengals, following the New York Giants two weeks ago. Before that the Bengals had sold out five straight dating back to the regular season finale last year against the Baltimore Ravens.
