Bengals vs 49ers Week 14 announcers for TV and live stream
The Cincinnati Bengals are hosting their third straight game and this one will be against the San Francisco 49ers. Who is on the call for this AFC/NFC showdown?
This matchup is happening thanks to the additional 17th game that was added for the 2021 season, pitting Cincy against San Fran in a battle of last year’s last-place teams from the AFC North and NFC West.
The Bengals obviously have a history against the 49ers despite only typically playing them every four years. This year both teams are entering this game as No. 7 seeds and a win is necessary to keep them in the playoff standings. San Francisco doesn’t have a great shot at winning their division, which isn’t the case for Cincinnati. They’re just a game behind the Ravens and have the tiebreaker over them.
Who is going to be in the broadcast booth for Bengals-49ers?
Greg Gumbel and Adam Archuleta will be the announcers for this one while A.J. Ross will handle sideline duties. This is the first time this season that Cincinnati will have this broadcast team for one of their games. They’ve been involved in several big games in 2021 so that’s led to them having Kevin Harlan/Trent Green calling a fair share of their games.
This is a matchup between two playoff teams (as it stands now) so it makes sense for it to have a better broadcast team in the booth. We should see a good game at Paul Brown Stadium this weekend as the Bengals continue to traverse through a difficult schedule.
Initially, this game was set to kick off at noon but it was pushed back to a 4:25 EST start time, which really doesn’t do much for the Bengals. The time change actually benefits the 49ers because they obviously play on the west coast, so really the time change is just nice because it allows more people to watch this game.
No matter what time this game is slated to kick off at, this will be a difficult game for Cincinnati, who are 1.5-point underdogs, per WynnBET. Let’s hope they can get back in the win column even with all of the injuries they have.
