The Cincinnati Bengals season may be over, but news keeps rolling in. It was announced on Tuesday that Bengals’ offensive lineman Andrew Whitworth will be going to the Pro Bowl and that Bengals 2013 season tickets will go on sale today for a reduced price.
Andrew Whitworth has been with the Cincinnati Bengals for all seven years of his NFL career and has long been considered one of the best at his position, and yet this will be his first Pro Bowl appearance.
Offensive line coach Paul Alexander does not hesitate to sing Whitworth’s praise, “I wouldn’t trade him for any left tackle in football,” said Alexander Tuesday night. “He’s a terrific pass protector. He’s a great leader and I love how he represents us.”
Andrew Whitworth was granted his spot in the Pro Bowl due to an injury to Denver Bronco’s Ryan Clady. Whitworth will join fellow Cincinnati Bengals teammates Geno Atkins, A. J. Green and Jermaine Gresham in Hawaii for the game which will take place on Jan. 27.
There was also good news for Cincinnati Bengals fans by way of owner Mike Brown: season ticket prices for some seats will be going down. Bengals 2013 season tickets go on sale today, Wednesday Jan. 16, and prices are being cut in 20 sections in Paul Brown Stadium.
There are sections that had ticket prices at $50 per game last year that are now $40, and some sections that were previously priced at $60 per game that are now $50.
The Cincinnati Bengals sold out six of their eight games at home in 2012 and saw attendance for the season increase by 24 percent, which was a league high. Hopefully the success of the team in recent years coupled with more affordable tickets will assist in selling out all games in 2013 thus avoiding local television blackouts.
Season tickets for the Cincinnati Bengals 2013 season can be purchased through the Bengals Ticket Hotline (513-621-8383) or through Ticketmaster.
