Bengals-Ravens On Fox, Not CBS

For the second time this month, a Bengals AFC North rivalry game will air on Fox instead of CBS, which normally carries AFC games.

The Bengals will play their final regular season game hosting Baltimore at 1 p.m. Sunday on WXIX-TV (Channel 19), not on WKRC-TV. The NFL "flexed" the Bengals to Fox.

CBS’ 1 p.m. games include these games with playoff implications: 

New England Patriots at Miami Dolphins; New York Jets at Buffalo Bills; Pittsburgh Steelers at Cleveland Browns; Tennessee Titans at Indianapolis Colts; and Jacksonville Jaguars at Houston Texans.

At 4:25 p.m., Channel 19 will air the Oakland Raiders at Kansas City Chiefs.

Channel 12 will air CBS' Steelers-Browns at 1 p.m., followed by the San Diego Chargers at Denver Broncos at 4:25 p.m.

“It’s the NFL that makes the changes, not the network… There’s nothing I can do about it,” says Jon Lawhead, Channel 12 general manager.

The Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers play on NBC’s “Sunday Night Football” at 8:30 p.m. Here is Sunday's complete NFL TV lineup.

The Bengals-Browns game aired on Fox Dec. 6 instead of CBS.
