    Default 2012 NFL Schedule

    Full schedule is announced tonight and FoxSports Radio is saying all NFL teams will play in at least 1 prime time game. Bengals vs. Raiders?

    ^ Most likely. ESPN is doing a 3 hour special on it tonight. Talk about overkill.

    I'm looking forward to finding out when I'll be in Nashville this fall, but other than that, I think I'd rather watch paint dry.

    The Bengals will have a hard schedule this year, I do expect the teams from the NFC East to be better than last years record indicated.

    I concur. Just shows that the NFL is king with popularity. Funny thing is we all know the schedule, just not the order of which they will play every team but it is like a holiday.

    I prefer the first game for the Bengals to be on the road.

    Steelers get to travel to Denver and deal with the circus of Peyton Manning on Sunday night football right out of the gate. All without their sickle cell safety. Yummy.

    That's a fun place to watch a football game, unless your team loses.

    I don't expect the Pats to lose there though. A few years back I watched the Giants play there. It was the year before they won the super bowl in 2007. The Giants were up 21-0 all the way into the 4th quarter, then the Titans scored 24 straight in the 4th. It was a depressing walk back to the car .

    I do too. However the NFL acting like they care about player safety but increasing the amount of times teams play on extremely short rest is a joke.

    After looking at the schedule the Bengals have a chance to get off to a real good start the first seven games before the bye week. Then it gets pretty tough the rest of the way. I think at least have to be 5 and 2 after the first seven games if they want a real chance to make the playoffs again.

    I think the Bengals have to get off to a great start to have a chance at the playoffs. Much tougher road this year for the AFC North.

    Agreed. They get a break in that they get some of the weaker QB's early and they can hopefully get hot to build some confidence before they get really tested.
