Bengals get extension to avoid blackout

The Bengals got a 24-hour extension to sell out their game against Detroit on Sunday and avoid a local television blackout.

It’s the fourth time this season that the Bengals have gotten a one-day extension for a sellout. They managed to sell out games against Denver, Houston and Baltimore, extending their streak to 50 straight games shown on local television.

The Bengals (8-3) would clinch only their second winning record in the last 19 years with a victory over the Lions (2-9).
