Bengals fans celebrate after tight end C.J. Uzomah scores his second touchdown of the game against the Jacksonville Jaguars at Paul Brown Stadium on Sept. 30, 2021.

The Bengals are expecting a full house at Sunday's 1 p.m. game against the Green Bay Packers. The Bengals strongly encourage fans to arrive early for faster entry into Paul Brown Stadium. Gates open at 11:30 a.m. Fans should arrive at the gates before 12:30 p.m. to avoid missing kickoff.

Very few tickets remain for Sunday's game. Fans can visit or call the Bengals Ticket Hotline at (513) 621-8383 to purchase tickets with no fees.

The pregame entertainment show kicks off at 12:30 p.m. with exclusive videos, enhanced player introductions and the Ruler of The Jungle ceremony. Sunday's Ruler of The Jungle is two-time Olympic gold medal swimmer Zach Apple. Apple won gold in the 4x100-meter medley relay and the 4x100-meter freestyle relay at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. Apple grew up in Trenton, OH and attended Edgewood High School.

Andrea Brown, who is currently undergoing cancer treatments at TriHealth, will sing the national anthem as part of the NFL's Crucial Catch initiative. Brown was diagnosed with stage three colon cancer earlier this year. Fans can visit a booth behind Section 116/118 to receive an "I Cheer For" sign to honor cancer survivors and those currently battling cancer. Fans are encouraged to post pictures with the signs, which will be available through halftime, on social media using #BengalsCrucialCatch.
