According to USA Today via Pro Football Talk.com., the Bengals’ appearance on NBC’s Hall of Fame Game Sunday night against the Cowboys drew the highest rating for a preseason telecast in six years. The 7.6 overnight rating had to fend off tough competition from ESPN’s Red Sox-Yankees game. The Cowboys are used to this sort of thing. It was the most watched preseason game since they played the Titans in 2004. The top three metered markets in the country were Cincinnati, Dallas and Dayton, OH.
People keep tuning into the drama that is Bengaldom. The team head backs to Georgetown College Monday night for the final three public days of training camp on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, as the Bengals hover near a daily average attendance record for the 14 years they’ve trained at the Georgetown, Ky., campus.
