The Cincinnati Bengals are assuring fans that the Monday Night Football game at Paul Brown Stadium will be safe.

In the aftermath of violence abroad, the Bengals are assuring fans that Monday night's football game at home against the Houston Texans is safe, and they advise against bringing bags and purses to the game.

From the Bengals:


“Since 9/11, the NFL and the Bengals have taken an comprehensive approach to fan safety at all of our games. Security at NFL games has evolved over the years and will be in full force for the game Monday evening. While we do not go into the details of all the security measures in place at our games, many aspects of our security plans are obvious to fans. Examples include the Clear Bag Policy, use of magnetometers as fans approach the stadium, and K-9 searches. Other aspects of security may be less obvious.

“Collectively our response represents the Best Practices that have been adopted by the NFL and other member Clubs.”

As Bengals fans prepare for the team’s second prime-time home game in two weeks, this Monday night against Houston, the Club is encouraging all to enter the stadium early and avoid delays close to kickoff.

Though clear bags are allowed, entry to the stadium will particularly be eased if fans forego bringing in purses or bags of any kind.
