Due to Christmas falling on Tuesday this year, the Cincinnati Bengals offered to extend ticket hours this week, opening at 9 AM until 7 PM on the club's ticket hotline and at the stadium. According to ticket sales manager Andrew Brown, the Bengals are reportedly within range of a possible sellout.
"We still need a good week of sales to reach a sellout," said ticket sales manager Andrew Brown, "but we’re hopeful that the excitement of yesterday’s win at Pittsburgh will give our fans the incentive to come out Sunday and enjoy the last home game of 2012 and send the team into the playoffs."
The Bengals can't improve or lose position in the seeding and the Baltimore Ravens can only improve their seeding to No. 3. Despite Marvin Lewis saying that the starters will play -- we suspect to help improve ticket sales mostly -- there's really nothing for either team to play for on Sunday.
Fans may purchase tickets through the Hotline at local phone 513-866-8383 or toll-free at 866-621-8383. In-person sales are welcomed at the Paul Brown Stadium ticket office, with free parking available on the stadium plaza off Elm Street. In addition to the extended Wednesday and Thursday hours, the Hotline and ticket office will be open from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. on Friday, and from 9 a.m.-noon on Saturday. On Sunday (game day), sales will open at the PBS North ticket office at 9 a.m., and the Hotline will open at 10 a.m.
