The Bengals' 2019 regular-season schedule was released tonight by the National Football League. The team's preseason schedule also has been finalized. Single-game tickets for all home games are on sale now (see information below).
Led by new Bengals Head Coach Zac Taylor, the Bengals kick off the regular season in Seattle against the Seahawks on Sept. 8. The Bengals' home opener is set for Week 2 when San Francisco comes to Cincinnati for a 1 p.m. kickoff on Sept. 15. The Bengals then have back-to-back road games at Buffalo and at Pittsburgh, with the Week 4 game against the division-rival Steelers being a nationally televised contest on Monday Night Football. The first half of the season wraps up on Oct. 27 in London against the L.A. Rams, Taylor's former team.
The second half of the season features five home games, including contests against division rivals Baltimore on Nov. 10, Pittsburgh on Nov. 24 and Cleveland on Dec. 29. The Browns game -- the regular-season finale -- will mark the 10th straight season that the Bengals have played a division opponent to end the season, though it's the first of those contests involving Cleveland. The Bengals also play home games against the N.Y. Jets on Dec. 1 and defending Super Bowl champion New England on Dec. 15.
Flexible scheduling involving Sunday Night Football may be used each week during Weeks 11-17. Also, in Weeks 5-10, Sunday games are subject to flexible scheduling with SNF, though it is limited to no more than two instances during that six-week span. In addition, any Sunday game may be moved from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., or vice versa.
The TV broadcast of the Bengals' Week 4 contest on ESPN also will be simulcast in Cincinnati by a local non-cable station, yet to be determined.
