The Cincinnati Bengals put their undefeated record on the line Sunday when the defending NFC champion Seattle Seahawks march into Paul Brown Stadium with their own season in the balance, and fans will want to watch the game live online because tickets have already sold out for the first time in the Bengals last three home games. The entire city of Cincinnati is focused on the game, one of the biggest regular season matchups in Bengals history.
“There’s going to be a lot of excitement here, which is great… The city’s going to be here, it’s going to be rocking, and that’s what we need to have.”
With a win, the Bengals would become the first AFC team to go 5-0. But the Seahawks also need a victory to keep the momentum going after their controversial, down-to-the-wire win over the Detroit Lions on Monday night.
After winning the Super Bowl in the 2013-14 season and making a return trip last season, only to lose a nail biter to the New England Patriots, the Seahawks dropped their first two games of this season. But after shutting out the Chicago Bears and barely getting past the Lions, Seattle must beat Cincinnati on the road to push their record over.500 and have any realistic hope of getting into the postseason.

For the second week in a row, the Seahawks will be missing star running back Marshawn Lynch, meaning that quarterback Russell Wilson will be forced to take to the air yet again to have a chance at escaping Paul Brown Stadium with a “W.”
But for the Bengals, fifth-year quarterback Andy Dalton is putting together a career year, leading the NFL in yards gained per pass attempt with 10.2 and yards per completed pass with 15.2.
Dalton’s quarterback rating of 123.0 is second only to Aaron Rodgers of the Green Bay Packers at 125.9, and puts the 27-year-old Dalton, who was the Bengals second-round draft pick in 2011 out of Texas Christian University — the 35th pick overall — a notch ahead of New England Patriots future Hall-of-Famer Tom Brady, whose rating is 119.6 after three games.
The Bengals and Seahawks have faced each other 19 times since the Seahawks joined the league in 1977, with Cincinnati leading the series by just one game, 10-9. The two teams last squared off in 2011, with the Bengals coming out of Seattle with a 34-12 victory.
Can the Cincinnati Bengals become the first AFC team to go to 5-0 on the 2015 season?
