CINCINNATI — For the first time since 2009, the Cincinnati Bengals have sold out their entire regular-season home schedule.

The Bengals’ ticket office announced Thursday afternoon that Sunday’s regular-season finale against the Baltimore Ravens would be a sellout, keeping them safe of blackout status for the eighth time this season.

Last season, Cincinnati’s home games against the New York Giants and Oakland Raiders were blacked out due to lagging ticket sales. Cincinnati has now sold out 10 straight home games, and 15 of its last 17.

News of the home-slate sellout came one week after the Bengals needed an extension in order to sell enough tickets to keep their game against the Minnesota Vikings on television. It was the second time this season the Bengals needed an extension.

The Bengals have made some history this season. With last week’s win over the Vikings and a loss by the Miami Dolphins, they clinched their third consecutive postseason berth.

It marked the first time in franchise history that the Bengals (10-5), who also clinched the AFC North title last week, have reached the playoffs in three consecutive seasons.
