Only in the near past, the Cincinnati Bengals announced the team had sold out of season tickets and for the primary time in an extended time, needed to create a waiting list.
No wonder — Joe Burrow’s one of the vital prolific quarterbacks within the NFL already and the Bengals look like annual contenders after a successful, lengthy rebuild.
