Bengals try to avoid blackout

CINCINNATI — The Bengals got a one-day extension to sell out their game on Sunday against the Houston Texans and avoid a local television blackout.

More than 3,000 tickets remained for the game. The NFL gave the team until 1 p.m. on Friday to sell out and avoid having the game blacked out in local television markets.

The Bengals (4-1) have sold out their last 46 games at Paul Brown Stadium.
