Couple NFL Notes

We got one tip from Friend of TSMW Mike Taylor, and got word of the other through various twitter updates...and they ARE connected...

Bengals Get One More Day: The local NFL franchise gets one more day to sell 5,000 tickets to sellout Paul Brown Stadium for this Sunday's opening week tilt against the Denver Broncos.

We had this earlier today from numerous sources, including all local TV stations, and the Bengals' Twitter.

If they can't sell the tickets, the game won't air locally on WKRC-TV 12/Cincinnati. Nor will it air on WHIO-TV 7/Dayton or WKYT-TV 27/Lexington. And that's a natural segue to our next item...

NFL.COM To Stream Games: For those who don't get to see their team, which could include the Bengals on Sunday, the NFL has some good news.

Beginning this week, will have all of the day's games available for on-demand streaming - except on Monday nights between 9 PM and Midnight ET, when Monday Night Football airs on ESPN.

But there's a catch - you'll have to wait until after midnight on Sunday nights. And you'll only have a 72-hour window to watch - after which, you can't see the games.

The NFL says the economy played a role in the move.
