Bengals K Evan McPherson's game-winning kick "spurred fans to rush to purchase his jersey which sold out by Monday," according to Brooks Sutherland of the CINCINNATI ENQUIRER. The Bengals official pro shop yesterday said that the jerseys "were no longer available and won't be 'anytime soon.'" The team also said that it has "run out of men's blank jerseys." The team posted on Twitter, "No one was prepared for this. Sorry, just trying to pass on the real info. Taking it day by day." Bengals Merchandise Manager Monty Montague said that sales were "three times as high last year as in 2019" (CINCINNATI ENQUIRER, 1/25). Kris Koch of Cincinnati-based Koch Sporting Goods said, "Everybody wants a jersey, they want a [Joe] Burrow, they want [Ja'Marr] Chase, [Trey] Hendrickson, anybody I can get." Koch said that those jerseys "should be back in stock by the end of the week," but "McPherson isn't happening." Koch: "McPherson is sold out for the year. Sorry, I tried." WKRC-CBS' Brad Underwood notes while fans "can't get a 2021 Burrow jersey at Koch right now, you can get last season's jersey" (LOCAL12.com, 1/25).
