Cincinnati Bengals: 5 potential primetime games on 2021 schedule
Primetime Games on Cincinnati Bengals 2021 Schedule
No. 1: Cleveland Browns
As much as Bengals fans don’t want to admit it, the Cleveland Browns are a good football team now and as a result, they’re going to get more primetime games. Last year, these two played in one of the first Thursday Night Football games of the year with the Browns beating the Bengals.
Not only are these two division rivals making it an easy choice for a primetime matchup, but it’s also pitting the two Ohio NFL teams and two young Heisman Trophy-winning quarterbacks against each other. Burrow and Baker Mayfield are looked to be the future of the league so it only makes sense to have them face off under the lights.
The Browns narrowly beat Cincinnati both times these two met up a year ago, with the first game going 35-30 in favor of Cleveland and the second coming down to the wire with a 37-34 victory for the Browns. Because of how competitive these games were last year, consider the battle of Ohio to be a lock for primetime in 2021.
Hopefully, the Bengals can get a few solid primetime games in 2021 so that we can enjoy watching them under the lights.
