Bengals in prime time three times in 2013
From the Bengals
The Bengals’ 2013 regular-season schedule was released today by the National Football League. For the second straight year, the schedule includes three national prime-time games -- one each on NBC (Sunday), ESPN (Monday) and NFL Network (Thursday). The Monday night game on ESPN will be the team’s home opener, vs. Pittsburgh on Sept. 16 at Paul Brown Stadium.
The Thursday night game on NFL Network will be on Oct. 31 at Miami. The Sunday night game on NBC is scheduled for Dec. 15 at Pittsburgh. The Dec. 15 game falls within the NFL’s flex scheduling period (Weeks 11-17), when kickoff times are subject to change, but if the Bengals wind up playing Pittsburgh on both ESPN and NBC, it will mark the first time for Cincinnati to play both games against a division foe in prime time.
The Sept. 16 home game vs. Pittsburgh will mark the fourth time in franchise history for the Bengals to open their home season with a prime time game. Cincinnati also did so vs. Baltimore in 2007, vs. Miami in 2004 and vs. Houston in 1991. The Bengals lost to Houston at Riverfront Stadium in ’91, but defeated Miami in ’04 and Baltimore in ’07, with both of those games at Paul Brown Stadium.
The Bengals will open the season on the road for the fourth straight year, visiting Chicago at 1 p.m. ET on Sun., Sept. 8. The Bengals will play their last two games at home – against Minnesota and Baltimore – for only the second time in the last 16 seasons.
“It’s exciting to know we’ll open the home schedule against the Steelers on Monday night,” said Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis. “We have had some great games against Pittsburgh the last few years, and the atmosphere should be tremendous. And of course I like having the last two at home, but we need to make sure we’re in position to capitalize on that edge.”
Broadcasts of the Bengals’ two games on cable -- on ESPN and NFL Network -- will also be simulcast in Cincinnati by a local non-cable station, yet to be determined.
The Bengals’ home schedule also features games against an attractive lineup of non-division opponents – Green Bay, New England, the New York Jets, Indianapolis and Minnesota. All of those teams except the Jets joined the Bengals in the playoffs last season.
The Bengals are scheduled with four total games in prime time. The preseason schedule, released previously, includes an ESPN contest at Atlanta.

A native of Camden, NJ, right-handed pitcher Rawly Eastwick was drafted by the Reds in the third round of the 1969 amateur draft. After making his Major League debut in September of 1974, Eastwick established himself as one of the game's elite closers in the Big Red Machine's World Championship season of 1975. Eastwick saved a league-high 22 games and posted an ERA of 2.60, a performance that earned him a third-place finish in Rookie of the Year voting. In the postseason, Eastwick earned a win and a save in the Reds' sweep of the Pirates in the NLCS and was credited with two wins and a save in Cincinnati's win over Boston in the World Series. Eastwick repeated as the league's saves leader in 1976 (26) helping the Reds to a second consecutive World Championship. For his efforts, Eastwick won the Rolaids Relief Man Award and was named the National League's Fireman of the Year by The Sporting News. The Reds traded Eastwick to the Cardinals in the middle of the middle of the 1977 season and he also pitched for the Yankees, Phillies, Royals and Cubs before retiring following the 1981 season.
