Chiefs Won't Face Another Road Blackout Against Bengals

The Cincinnati Bengals announced that enough tickets have been sold to meet the NFL's definition of a sellout.

The Bengals had employed an incentive in trying to meet the sellout deadline. If tickets were purchased to the Chiefs game, you could put money down to save a seat in the event the Bengals host a home playoff game.  It's a bold move considering the Bengals, you know, aren't in the playoffs yet.

Maybe it's their record, or maybe it's the economy, but the Chiefs have played in front of some slim crowds both at home and on the road.

The Chiefs faced two consecutive blackouts on November 8th and November 15th.  Two weeks after that the Chargers needed an extension to sellout a home game against the Chiefs. Then the Chiefs needed an extension to sellout the Bills game and, of course, the blackout last season.

That's three blackouts and three extensions the Chiefs have experienced this season.  Seems kinda high, doesn't it?
