CINCINNATI -- Local Bengals fans will be able to watch their favorite team Sunday from their comfort of their sofa.
The team's 1 p.m. home game against the Minnesota Vikings is a sellout, which means the game won't be blacked out on local television, the Bengals ticket office announced Friday.
While a limited number of tickets on all three levels of Paul Brown Stadium remain available, sales have reached the threshold for the game to be considered a sellout, according to NFL rules.
On Thursday, roughly 3,500 tickets remained. The league gave them a one-day extension to sell out the game and avoid the awkward distinction of being blacked out while sitting atop their division.
They team packed PBS with fans for their first six home games. But as the playoffs close in, they've become a tough ticket to sell. The loss in Pittsburgh left a lot of fans with a sense of doom.
The Bengals (9-5) need to beat the Vikings (4-9-1) to move a step closer to clinching the division title. They've led the division by at least two games for most of the season, but it's down to one over Baltimore (8-6) with two games left.
Tickets may be purchased by calling the Bengals Ticket Hotline at 866-621-8383 (TDTD) or through Bengals.com.
