The Cincinnati Bengals already know what teams they’ll play in the 2022 season but everyone will find out when they play those teams when the NFL reveals the schedules on Thursday.

Due to the additional regular-season game, the Bengals will play one game against the NFC East this year and since they won the AFC North, they’ll draw the winner of that division, which was the Cowboys. They’ll also face the AFC East and NFC South while also getting the winners of the AFC South (Titans) and AFC West (Chiefs) respectively.

With the Bengals shocking the world and making it all the way to the Super Bowl a season ago, the stripes should see a fair amount of primetime games this season. That wasn’t the case a season ago, as their only regular-season game in primetime was against the Jaguars in Week 4.

This time around, however, the NFL knows that the stripes can put on a show and they’ll be playing under the bright lights of primetime. Let’s discuss five games from the Bengals schedule that absolutely have to be in primetime this year.

We’ll start with a more flexible option but one that’s surely going to come true.
