Cincinnati Bengals Announce 2024 Season Schedule

The Bengals' 2024 schedule was released tonight by the National Football League, including preseason opponents and the full 17-game regular season slate. Cincinnati will be featured in five primetime games as well as three more games in nationally televised windows.

Two of the Bengals' primetime contests will be played under the lights at Paycor Stadium, beginning with a Monday Night Football matchup against the Washington Commanders on Sept. 23 (8:15 p.m. on ABC). Cincinnati's other home primetime game features the "Battle of Ohio," as the Bengals will host the Cleveland Browns on Thursday Night Football on Dec. 19 (8:15 p.m. on Prime Video).

The game against the Browns will be the Bengals' second appearance on Thursday Night Football, and their second such matchup against an AFC North Division rival. Cincinnati also will travel to Baltimore to take on the Ravens on Thursday, Nov. 7 (8:15 p.m. on Prime Video). This marks the first time in team history that the Bengals are scheduled to play on Thursday Night Football twice in the same season.

The Bengals also will hit the road for a Sunday Night Football showdown against the New York Giants on Oct. 13 (8:20 p.m. on NBC), and for their second Monday Night Football appearance of the season at Dallas on Dec. 9 (8:15 p.m. on ESPN).

Additionally, Cincinnati will play three games in the 4:25 p.m. Sunday time slot on CBS — Sept. 15 at Kansas City, Oct. 27 vs. Philadelphia, and Nov. 17 at the L.A. Chargers. The Week 2 contest against the defending Super Bowl champion Chiefs will mark the fourth time in four seasons that the Bengals play at GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium, which includes two AFC Championship games.

The Bengals will kick off the regular season at home against the New England Patriots on Sunday, Sept. 8 (1 p.m. on CBS), and close out their schedule with a road clash against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 18 (date/time TBD).

Preseason opponents also have been finalized. Cincinnati will open the preseason at home against Tampa Bay on Saturday, Aug. 10 at 7 p.m., then travel to Chicago to face the Bears on Saturday, Aug. 17 at 1 p.m. Each of the first two preseason games will be broadcast on the Bengals Preseason TV Network. Cincinnati will return to Paycor Stadium to host the Indianapolis Colts in a nationally televised preseason finale on Thursday, Aug. 22 (8 p.m. on Prime Video).
