Primetime Bengals: New York Giants host Cincinnati on NBC Sunday Night

The second of five scheduled primetime games on the Cincinnati Bengals’ 2024 schedule is an NFL Week 6 meeting with the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium on NBC’s Sunday Night Football.


The Bengals-Giants kickoff is scheduled for 8:20 p.m. Eastern on October 13. It comes three weeks after the Bengals’ first scheduled primetime game of the season, against the Washington Commanders at Paycor Stadium.


Washington was the only team to finish the 2023 season lower in the NFC East standings than the 6-11 Giants.

Bengals starting quarterback Joe Burrow has not played against the Giants. When the Giants and Bengals met in November 2020, Burrow had suffered a season-ending knee injury one week earlier against Washington.


What to know about the Bengals’ only scheduled Sunday Night Football appearance of the season:


The Giants are one of three NFC East opponents the Bengals will face in primetime.

In addition to primetime games against Washington and the Giants, the Bengals are scheduled to visit the Dallas Cowboys on Monday Night Football in Week 14.



The Giants are scheduled to visit the Commanders in Week 2, one week before the Bengals host Washington.


The Bengals’ visit is part of a tough stretch for the Giants. Between NFL Weeks 3 and 8, New York doesn’t face any opponent that had a losing record last season.


The Giants-Bengals game is one of three scheduled primetime games for New York. It’s the only scheduled Sunday Night Football appearances for the Giants.


And when the Giants welcome Cincinnati, they could be looking ahead to a Week 7 reunion with Saquon Barkley and the Philadelphia Eagles.
