No, because the announced attendance is the number of people in the building, not the number of tickets sold. So based on the latter, the streak continues on. I figured that there would be a lot of empty seats because of the weather and because it's the lowly Bengals. If it was a better opponent, there likely would have been fewer no-shows.

Ah, I see. That explains the empty seats. Thanks a lot man.
