The NFL announced their flex schedule for week 11 Tuesday, leaving Cincinnati's meeting with the Baltimore Ravens for the 1:00 p.m. game on CBS. There was some hope that the Bengals could be flexed to Sunday Night Football, but obviously the National Football League would want to keep the New York Giants hosting the Philadelphia Eagles on primetime. This is the second time in consecutive weeks that the Bengals had a beggar's chance of moving up to a more reachable audience, but losing out against higher profile cities.
Setting aside more commonly known information, such as which networks have double-headers, what the schedule is throughout the rest of the league, we imagine that there will be some interest in Cincinnati's week 13 game in Pittsburgh and the week 17 regular season finale against the Ravens; all of which could have playoff implications. As of now, however, all games for the rest of this season will have a 1:00 p.m.
