Chad Johnson and Cris Collinsworth Among Legends to be Honored at Texans Game

Posted Sep 11, 2017

In honor of the Bengals’ 50th season, Bengals Legends will be recognized during halftime ceremonies at every regular season home game.

The Bengals take on the Texans at Paul Brown Stadium on Thursday (8:25 p.m.) in a game that kicks off the NFL’s Thursday Night Football package and marks the only time this season the Bengals will wear Color Rush jerseys. Fifth Third Bank will make game day a Fifth Third Better by handing out orange rally towels with the 50th season logo to all fans at the game as they enter the gates, while supplies last.

The Bengals are teaming up with WLWT, the American Red Cross, the City of Cincinnati and Hamilton County to host Help for Houston at the game.  American Red Cross volunteers and WLWT personalities will be at entrances to Paul Brown Stadium before the game to collect cash donations for hurricane relief efforts. Gates open at 7 p.m.

Tickets are available through the Bengals Ticket Hotline at (513) 621-8383 or toll-free at (866) 621-8383, online at or by visiting the Paul Brown Stadium ticket office. Fans can call the Bengals Ticket Hotline Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., and on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The ticket office is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

In honor of the Bengals’ 50th season, Bengals Legends will be recognized during halftime ceremonies at every regular season home game.
