With Joe Burrow out for the season with a wrist injury, TV stations are likely looking forward to their prime time slots which the Cincinnati Bengals are scheduled to play in, and thinking about making some changes.
The Bengals’ Week 13 game against Trevor Lawrence and the Jacksonville Jaguars is supposed to be played on ESPN’s Monday Night Football, and it’s entirely possible that game could be flexed out and played on Sunday, Dec. 3 instead.
The Bengals also play a Saturday game against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 16 on Dec. 23, and a 4:25 game against the Kansas City Chiefs the week after that.
The Buffalo Bills and Los Angeles Chargers face off in Week 16 on Peacock, while the Bengals are supposed to be broadcast on NBC, so there could likely be a change there so Josh Allen and Justin Herbert are on national TV while the Bengals move to a streaming service.
With the Bengals’ main attraction out for the season and the Bengals at the bottom of the AFC North with a 5-5 record, it is definitely a possibility there could be some schedule changes for Cincinnati in the upcoming weeks.
