A season after making a run to the Super Bowl, the Cincinnati Bengals will be featured more prominently on national television in 2022.

The National Football League released the upcoming schedule on Thursday, with the Bengals having the maximum five prime-time games.

The Bengals will host Miami on Thursday Night Football on Sept. 29.

All three of Cincinnati’s road divisional games are in prime time. The Bengals are at Baltimore on Sunday Night Football on Oct. 9. They are at Cleveland on Monday Night Football on Oct. 31, and at Pittsburgh on Sunday night on Nov. 20.

The Bengals will host Buffalo on Monday night on Jan. 2.

Cincinnati only had one prime-time game in the regular season last year, a Thursday night win over Jacksonville.

The Bengals ended a 31-year drought without a playoff win behind quarterback Joe Burrow, eventually advancing to the Super Bowl for the third time in franchise history.

Cincinnati lost to the Rams in the Super Bowl.

The Bengals will open the season at home on Sept. 11 against Pittsburgh. It’s the first time the two AFC North rivals have ever met in an opener.
