One of the league’s longest reigning head coaches, the Cincinnati Bengals will not let Marvin Lewis enter the new season with the dreaded “lame duck” status, signing the coach to a one-year contract extension.
This comes despite yet another disappointing postseason for the Bengals, who have reached the playoffs in all four seasons that Andy Dalton has been the starting quarterback, but still haven’t won a postseason game in that span. A.J. Green couldn’t play in the team’s most recent playoff game against the Indianapolis Colts, however, ultimately serving as a factor in why the team lost and added to their long list of early-round playoff exits.
The offense behind Dalton will remain virtually the same, hoping another year of chemistry will push the team to new heights. Below, according to Razorgator, we analyze the most expensive and least expensive Cincinnati Bengals tickets on the secondary ticket market.
Most Expensive: 12/06/2015 | Cleveland Browns vs. Cincinnati Bengals | FirstEnergy Stadium | Average Price: $454.26 | Get-in Price: $33
The Cincinnati Bengals had two drastically different results in their two matchups with the Cleveland Browns last season. From Week 8 to Week 13, the Bengals won five of six games but had a Week 10 loss to the Browns by a score of 24-3. Later in Week 15, the Bengals dished out payback, winning 30-0 at FirstEnergy Stadium. Cincinnati will be looking for a repeat performance in early December of this season, as they head to the Dawg Pound for a late-season divisional clash.
Least Expensive: 11/22/2015 | Arizona Cardinals vs. Cincinnati Bengals | University of Phoenix Stadium | Average Price: $164.07 | Get-in Price: $35
The least expensive average ticket price for a Bengals game is when they travel to the west coast to face the Arizona Cardinals. The AFC North is paired with the NFC West for their out-of-conference schedule this season, which will also include games against the San Francisco 49ers, Seattle Seahawks and St. Louis Rams. The Cardinals are a team with a lot of roster turnover since last season, mainly involving the defense that lost coordinator Todd Bowles and cornerback Antonio Cromartie to the New York Jets. But head coach Bruce Arians is one of the brightest minds in the NFL and will have the Cardinals competing for their third straight season with double-digit victories. Arizona Cardinals tickets for this contest and others are very much still available. Both the Bengals and the Cardinals were eliminated in the first round of postseason play in 2014.
