NFL Preseason Schedule Released On Wednesday

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The NFL doled out the 2014 preseason schedule on Wednesday for all 32 teams. Let's take a look at who the Bengals are facing at the end of this summer.

As we inch nearer to the busy days going into the 2014 NFL season, one of the most important facets is the preseason schedule. The league released this year's upcoming schedule on Wednesday and the Bengals' preseason contains a couple of familiar foes in the summer months and a couple of others that aren't often pitted against Cincinnati.

The game against the Cardinals will hold extra significance for a couple of reasons. Of course, the top reason has to be the Bengals facing off against their old quarterback, Carson Palmer. It will be the second time that the team will have faced him, with the other coming in 2012 when Palmer was with the Raiders. The Bengals destroyed Oakland by the score of 34-10.

The other reason that this game is significant is because it will be a primetime game, shown on NBC. No doubt, the Palmer-Bengals relationship was a major reason why this decision was made. Since their resurgence in the Andy Dalton/A.J. Green era, the Bengals have had a primetime preseason game the past few seasons.

It's actually a pretty tough four games, given that the Chiefs and Colts made the postseason last year, while the Jets and Cardinals barely missed out on them as well.
