Bengals Trying To Hold First Place


CINCINNATI (AP) The Bengals are trying to hold onto first place in the AFC North and fill their stadium for two final home games that will decide their fate.

They've got a lot of work to do in both areas.

The Bengals (9-5) need to beat the Vikings (4-9-1) at Paul Brown Stadium on Sunday to move a step closer to clinching the division title. They've led the division by at least two games for most of the season, but it's down to one over Baltimore (8-6) with two games left.

The Bengals are 6-0 at home, but are having trouble selling out. Roughly 3,500 tickets remained on Thursday, and the team got a one-day extension before a local television blackout kicks in.
