The NFL announced the complete 2022 schedule on Thursday, and the Cincinnati Bengals are officially set to kick off their 2022 season at home against the Pittsburgh Steelers at 1 p.m. ET on CBS. That, of course, is a divisional game and their next one will be in Week 5 at the Baltimore Ravens for Sunday Night Football.

Cincinnati went 10-7 in 2021 and won the AFC North. They made the playoffs and rode their momentum to Super Bowl 56, losing to the Los Angeles Rams. The Bengals signed La’el Collins, Alec Gappa and Ted Karras in free agency to better protect quarterback Joe Burrow. They focused on secondary depth in the draft, using their first two selections on safeties.

All times listed are Eastern.
