CINCINNATI -- The Bengals have their first home sellout of the regular season, and it's not their opener.

The club announced on Wednesday that a Sept. 27 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers has sold out. That game always attracts thousands of Steelers fans who make the five-hour drive and turn Paul Brown Stadium into something akin to their home field.

It's the only one of eight regular-season home games to sell out so far. Tickets are left for the Sept. 13 home opener against Denver. Cincinnati has sold out its last 44 regular-season home games.

The last time the Bengals didn't sell out an opener was 2002 under coach Dick LeBeau, the year before Marvin Lewis arrived to coach the team.

The Bengals are coming off a 4-11-1 season that dashed interest in the team. Cincinnati has one winning record in the last 18 years.
They should be paying our gas for the trip. If it wasn't for all the Steeler fans, they might not ever sell out....:lol: :tt02: :tt02: :tt02:

There still will be a number of Terrible Towels twirling in the stands on that late September afternoon in Bungles territory. Sellout or not sellout the Steelers havent lost a game in Cincinnati to the Bengals since the 2001 season, and have won the last 8 meetings between the 2 teams at Paul Brown Stadium...
