While many fans are expecting the end of the Bengals sellout streak this weekend vs. Miami, they will probably have to wait two more home games before not being subject to 2010 Bengals football on TV.
A streak that dates back to a November 9th game in 2003 vs. Houston will extend through Miami and Pittsburgh, before ending on November 21st vs. Buffalo.
The Bengals will be playing just their 3rd home game of the season this Sunday, and most casual fans (including women and those from the East Side) that buy tickets to 1-2 games per season do so in September and October, to avoid the potential cold weather/2-10 record later in the season. As a result, my guess is that the Bengals are sufficiently 'within range' for this Sunday due to sales earlier in the season, with Kroger and other sponsors picking up the slack later this week.
With the Monday night tilt vs. Pittsburgh effectively sold out, that leaves the Buffalo game as the streak-buster.
Over seven years of sellouts and a combined record (including playoffs) of 54-56-1 will soon come to a screeching halt.
