As the Cincinnati Bengals move toward the end of their season, they had two games remaining on their schedule that were yet to be determined. The Week 15 matchup against the Minnesota Vikings was set to be on either Saturday, December 16th, or Sunday, December 17th.

With the college football season on its annual break before bowl season, the door opens for the NFL to tap in to the Saturday market, giving us two days of NFL action.

Thursday, the NFL confirmed that the Bengals and Vikings will meet on that Saturday. All three games on this day will be broadcast on the NFL Network.

With only three games on Saturday, the Bengals will get some national exposure, but with both Cincinnati and Minnesota set to start backup quarterbacks, there was little to no chance of the game being moved to prime time, but it does stay on Saturday.

Fans will be able to head to Paycor Stadium on Saturday and then enjoy the full slate of NFL football comfortably from home on Sunday.
