Titans at Bengals: Game won't sellout and will be tape delayed

Andy Lyons

The Bengals will open Paul Brown Stadium this Saturday but the game will be blacked out in the region.

If you're planning to cook steaks and invite friends to a brewhaha this Saturday in conjunction with Cincinnati's 7 p.m. kickoff against the Tennessee Titans, you might want to delay your plans.

The Bengals will host the Titans at Paul Brown Stadium this Saturday, however the game will not be sold out. Per league rules (even during the preseason), a game that doesn't sellout without the 75-mile radius from the stadium will be blacked out locally.

However, unlike the regular season, the game will be tape delayed in the region. Some areas will have the game live. Here is the current schedule, time, and channels when the game will be shown.

Air time on Channel 12 will be at 11:35 p.m., and air time on WRGT-TV (Ch. 45) in Dayton will be 11 p.m. The game will air live in Columbus and Lima, Ohio, and in Louisville, Ky. The network affiliate in Columbus is WSYX-TV (Ch. 6), the affiliate in Lima is WLIO-TV (Ch. 35), and the affiliate in Louisville is WDRB-TV (Ch. 41).

The last preseason game that the Bengals sold out was in 2008 when the team hosted the New Orleans Saints. As Joe Reedy with the Cincinnati Enquirer points out, that was a time when the Bengals had a larger season-ticket base.

And if you're thinking of getting NFL.com's preseason live service to circumvent the blackout, you might want to reconsider that also.
