Just as we update today's storylines this morning, the team has announced that the Cincinnati Bengals game against the Kansas City Chiefs is sold out (as NFL sellouts go) and will be shown on local television.

The Bengals announced Saturday morning that tomorrow’s game against Kansas City is officially a sellout, extending the streak to 52 games. The Bengals can clinch the AFC North with a win. The Bengals received a 48-hour extension on Thursday to sell the remaining 1,500 tickets.

Joe Reedy writes that Motorola and Local 12 pitched in to help lift the blackout. In other tickets news, the Bengals remaining playoff tickets will go on sale Saturday night at 6pm.

Best of all, we can finally put a close to the year's storyline if the team will sellout every game. They did. Thanks to local companies, local television and hardcore fans that put aside their reservations during tough economic times to support the Cincinnati Bengals.
