The Cincinnati Bengals learned earlier this month who their preseason opponents would be and which week they'll play. We knew that the Bengals will open the preseason in Kansas City, then host the New York Jets in preseason game No. 2. The team will head to Arizona and finish the preseason with the annual I-74 game against the Indianapolis Colts.
Times and actual dates have been announced.

*Not announced yet, but local 12 has traditionally broadcasted preseason games with Brad Johansen and Anthony Munoz.
The NFL will announce the regular season schedule at 8 p.m. on the NFL Network. However, it's usually released by the team around that time -- so you really don't need the network or wait for them to reach the AFC North.
