Cincinnati Bengals Games That Could Be Flexed – Week 9

53. CBS. 0. 56. 1 PM ET. Sunday, Nov 7. . 0

Week 9 is the first time we’ll see the battle of Ohio go down this season and it’s the first game on the Bengals’ schedule that could be flexed into a different time. As of now, it’s slated for 1:00 EST but it wouldn’t be crazy to see it bumped to later in the day.

There are only three late afternoon games on tap for Week 9 so that’s certainly an option here. Sunday Night Football that week will pit the Los Angeles Rams against the Tennessee Titans, so that’s definitely a good game that probably won’t get flexed out.

Still, Bengals/Browns would be an intriguing game to move to a late afternoon spot because both of these teams are good. Who would have thought that we’d ever see both the Bengals and Browns being competitive in the same year considering how notoriously bad they’ve both been?

I’d love to see this game flexed into the Sunday night spot but with that Rams/Titans game looking more intriguing by the week, I’d settle with this game being bumped back to 4:05 or 4:25.
