The Cincinnati Bengals game against the Indianapolis Colts this Sunday has sold out.

With the Cincinnati Bengals hosting the Indianapolis Colts this weekend, possibly resolving probable differences for the No. 3 seed, it comes at no surprise that the game has sold out, the team announced on Tuesday. This will be their sixth sellout this season and eighth straight dating back to 2012.

The Indianapolis Colts, who secured a major divisional victory last week with a 22-14 win over the Tennessee Titans, are looking to secure a postseason berth with a win. Cincinnati is looking to maintain their two-game lead over the Baltimore Ravens and make things difficult for the Colts by claiming a major tiebreaker for possible seeding scenarios.

Cincinnati will host the Minnesota Vikings on Dec. 22 and the Baltimore Ravens on Dec. 29. The team has already begun doing two-game promotions for the Vikings and Ravens, due to the Minnesota game being a tough sell. The Bengals removed service charges on tickets last Friday, saving consumers as much as 15 percent on their ticket purchases.

However, with the team having so few season ticket holders, compared to years past, it's harder to push single-game tickets, which usually doesn't provide substantial movement until the week of the game.
