CINCINNATI — The Bengals offered hot dogs, cotton candy, hot chocolate and water to fans who lined up Monday to take advantage of a ticket promotion for the final home game.
Cincinnati made a buy-one, get-one-free offer to season ticket holders to try to fill Paul Brown Stadium for an important game on Sunday. The Bengals (9-6) will clinch a wild card playoff berth if they beat the Baltimore Ravens (11-4).
The 65,500-seast stadium has been one-third empty for most games this season. The Bengals have sold out only one time, when Pittsburgh brought thousands of fans.
Cincinnati sold 41,273 tickets for its victory over Arizona on Saturday that gave the Bengals only their third winning record in the last 21 years. Fans are upset over the franchise's dismal showing.
