The Cincinnati Bengals' streak of 57 straight sellouts officially came to an end, the team announced Thursday. That means the Bengals' game against the Buffalo Bills Sunday will be blacked out in the Cincinnati area for the first time since 2003.
After a horrible start, the Bengals (2-7) could have issues the rest of the season with blackouts. Cincinnati will host three more games in December against the New Orleans Saints, Cleveland Browns and San Diego Chargers.
The Bengals were unable to generate a last-minute buzz this week. Cincinnati and Buffalo (1-8) combine for just a 3-15 record.
