In a Harris Interactive survey released in February, Paul Brown Stadium was the only football stadium to make a list of "America's Favorite 150 Buildings and Structures." PBS ranked 101st on the list, whose range included all manner of major structures, including skyscrapers, museums, churches, hotels and even bridges. (The Empire State Building ranked first). Among all sports venues, only Wrigley Field (31) and the old Yankee Stadium (84) ranked higher than PBS. For the second straight season, the Bengals sold out all games before the season began. The team entered the season with high expectations, with its first two home games selected for ESPN Monday Night Football. But the season's first half ended with a disappointing 2-6 record, and a second-half rally lifted the club only to 7-9, the first losing season for head coach Marvin Lewis. WR T.J. Houshmandzadeh tied for the league receptions title (112), setting a club record that still stands through 2017 and becoming the only Bengal ever to gain a share of the league lead. WR Chad Johnson broke his own team receiving yards record with 1440, a season mark that stands through 2017, and K Shayne Graham set two marks that stand through '17 — season field-goal percentage (91.2 on 31-of-34) and FGs in a game (seven). Graham was seven-for-seven on Nov. 11 at Baltimore, scoring all of Cincinnati's points in a 21-7 win. On Sept. 16 at Cleveland, QB Carson Palmer set a Bengals game record (still standing through 2017) with six TD passes, but the Bengals lost in a 51-45 shootout to the underdog Browns, starting a four-game losing streak that followed a season opening Monday night win vs. Baltimore. On Oct. 28 vs. Pittsburgh, the team established a franchise record for single-game attendance, recording a figure of 66,188. That number stands through 2017 as the largest crowd ever to attend a sports event in Cincinnati, and other Bengals crowds at Paul Brown Stadium more than fill out the other spots on the all-time Cincinnati top 10.
