Ticket are moving at a decent rate for Sunday's game between the Cincinnati Bengals and Carolina Panthers, per the mothership, which sources the team's ticket sales manager, Andrew Brown. Cincinnati needs to sell 85 percent of stadium capacity to lift the television blackout.
"It’s been a positive week," Brown said via Bengals.com. "After the game on Sunday I kind of feared the worst and it’s been much better than that."
Most of us did too.
Brown said the Bengals are pretty close to where they were the Wednesday of the PBS opener, when they drew 58,574 against Atlanta, and in much better shape than they were on the Wednesday of the Tennessee game, where they drew 56,743.
Per Bengals.com, the stadium capacity for Paul Brown Stadium is 65,515. Cincinnati has yet to sell out any of their games, and have even failed to reach the 90 percent bracket in either game. Looks like they knew what they were doing when deciding on the 85 percent threshold.

The Bengals have currently sold
out enough tickets to lift the television blackout in 13 consecutive regular season and postseason home games. The last television blackout was Nov. 25, 2012 when the Bengals hosted Oakland. Prior to that, Cincinnati went through an 11-game stretch where 10 games were blacked out from the middle of 2010 into 2011; they've since ended up selling out in all but two games in 2012 and every game in 2013.
