The Cincinnati Bengals have announced their 2012 preseason schedule. They will play at home against the Jets and Packers and play away, in a nationally televised game at Atlanta and of course against Indianapolis.
#Bengals announce preseason opponents, including national TV game at ATL (8/16), home games against NYJ and Packers, and road game at IND.
The Bengals will open their preseason at home for the first time since 2006 and will play the Jets, which will be our first glimpse of Tim Tebow in green and white. The date and time for this game have yet to be announced, but, according to Bengals.com, the game will be played between Aug. 9 and 13 in the first week of preseason play.
In the second week of the preseason, the Bengals will head south to Atlanta to play the Falcons in a nationally televised game. That game is set to be played Aug. 16 at 8 p.m. and will be aired on FOX.
In the third week, the Bengals come back to Cincinnati to face the Packers in Paul Brown Stadium. Again, the game date and time have yet to be released for this game. It will be played between Aug. 23 and 27.
Finally, in the last preseason game, the Bengals head west to Indianapolis to face the Colts, like they do every preseason. This will be the teams' first look at new quarterback Andrew Luck, if things play out like everybody believes they will. The game date and time have yet to be set, but it will be played on Aug. 30 or 31.
For those of you who live in the Cincinnati area, the team's preseason games against the Jets, Packers and Colts will be aired on Local 12 (WKRC-TV) and all four games will be on the Bengals Radio Network, which is WCKY-AM (ESPN 1530) and WEBN-FM (102.7).
It's getting to be that time of year.
