Bengals' blackout streak now at seven
At 3-2 and in the thick of the AFC North race, the Cincinnati Bengals have been better than expected on the field thus far this season.
But while the Bengals are getting things done correctly on the field behind a tough defense and a maturing young quarterback in Andy Dalton, they are not getting it done at the gate.
Sunday's game with the Indianpolis Colts at Paul Brown Stadium has already been blacked out, marking the seventh home game in a row that Cincinnati fans will not be able to watch the Bengals on TV. The streak, of course, dates back to last season.
The good news for the Bengals is that their next home game - Nov. 13 against the Pittsburgh Steelers - probably will sell out. The bad news is that a good portion of that sellout crowd will be wearing black and gold and cheering for the Steelers.
