CINCINNATI (AP) -- The Cincinnati Bengals say that Sunday's pivotal game with the Baltimore Ravens is a sellout, only the second this season at Paul Brown Stadium.

A victory would clinch an NFL wild-card playoff spot for the Bengals (9-6). The Ravens (11-4) are trying to wrap up the AFC North title and earn a first-round bye with a victory. The Bengals would need help in other games Sunday to reach the playoffs if they lose.

After selling only 41,273 tickets for last Saturday's home game with Arizona, the club goosed this week's sales with a two-for-one offer for season ticket holders.

The Bengals say some club seats and single seats are still available, but that enough tickets have been sold to meet NFL requirements for lifting the local TV blackout.
