Local Cincinnati Bengals fans will get to watch the Bengals play the Chargers this Sunday at Paul Brown Stadium (PBS). Today, the team announced the game is officially a sellout. Bengals fans can thank Procter & Gamble and its brands, Jeff Ruby, and Kroger for buying enough tickets to get the game televised.

Cincinnati fans can now watch the game locally on Channel 12 at 1:05 p.m. on Sunday. Based on an NFL blackout rule, home teams cannot televise their games locally unless the game is a sellout. Kroger will distribute their tickets (while supplies last) on Saturday to military veterans and active duty service members at several Kroger locations throughout the Cincinnati region.

The Bengals and their fans hope to end a period of ineptitude. According to, the Bengals haven’t won a playoff game since gas was $1.19 per gallon. The Bengals last playoff victory came on January 6, 1991. They defeated the Houston Oilers (now the Tennessee Titans) 41-14 before losing their next game to the Raiders.
