The Cincinnati Bengals are in the top-half of the NFL for estimated travel miles for the upcoming 2015-16 season, according to an article published by CBSSports.com. The Bengals rank 13th out of the NFL’s 32 teams with 16,062 miles and have two trips that exceed 2,000 miles.
With that being said, in combination with secondary market ticket prices for Bengals road games according to TiqIQ.com, below are a few travel options for Bengals fans looking to see the team on the road this season, as Cincinnati looks to get over the first-round playoff hump.
12/28/2015 | Denver Broncos vs. Cincinnati Bengals | Sports Authority Field At Mile High | Average Price: $315.50 | Get-in Price: $90 | Monday Night Football
The Bengals travel to Peyton Manning’s house in-between Christmas and the New Year for their most expensive road game of the season. It would be a stretch to turn this game into a road trip for Bengals fans, as the estimated 1,200-mile trip would take between 17 and 18 hours. Hipmunk.com has flights to and from Denver with a nonstop flight time of just less than three hours, with round trip prices starting from $571.70. Being on Monday Night Football, and potentially one of Manning’s final games in his legendary career, it might be worth that price.
9/27/2015 | Baltimore Ravens vs. Cincinnati Bengals | M&T Bank Stadium | Average Price: $258.65 | Get-in Price: $79
The three-way rivalry of the Baltimore Ravens, Cincinnati Bengals and Pittsburgh Steelers is what makes the AFC North division one of the toughest in the NFL. The trip to M&T Bank Stadium is possible, covering eight hours of time in just over 500 miles. Nonstop Baltimore flights take about an hour-and-a-half and start from $233.70 for a round trip trek to see Cincinnati take on one of its fiercest division opponents.
11/1/2015 | Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Cincinnati Bengals | Heinz Field | Average Price: $239.12 | Get-in Price: $92
The shortest trip of the three is when the Bengals try to earn a victory at Heinz Field. The drive would take less than five hours for the less-than-300-mile journey, so the road trip is definitely in play for Bengals fans. Nonstop flights would take just about an hour and cost around $329.70, so the road trip would be the most economic option. Either way, this is an intense division rivalry worth seeing.
