CINCINNATI (WXIX) - The Cincinnati Bengals’ regular season schedule is out.

The season begins with back-to-back games against AFC North rivals: at Cleveland then back home against Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens.

“It’s challenging right out of the gates with a road trip to Cleveland and then back home against Baltimore,” says James Rapien, publisher for “Those are two teams who think they’re going to win the AFC North.”

Fans don’t have to wait long for a primetime game this season.

In Week 3... at Paycor Stadium... head coach Zac Taylor welcomes his close friend Sean McVay and the Los Angeles Rams to Cincinnati for Monday Night Football.

A matchup the Bengals and their fans will be looking forward to comes in Week 9 when the Buffalo Bills return to Paycor Stadium. Oh, and the game is on Sunday Night Football.

Another pair of primetime games come in Week 11 (at Baltimore) and Week 13 (at Jacksonville).

The rematch of last season’s AFC Championship will go down in Week 17 in Kansas City.
