Wednesday July 29th, 2015

The Cincinnati Bengals begin their quest for a fifth straight playoff appearance with a preseason game on Aug. 14 against the New York Giants. Complete information on the Bengals’ 2015 preseason schedule, with times, TV listings and opponents, can be found below. 

The Bengals’ biggest move of the off-season was signing defensive end Michael Johnson to a four-year, $24 million contract. Johnson played in Cincinnati from 2009–13 before signing with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2014. He was released after one season and returned to the Bengals. 

The Bengals also added linebacker A.J. Hawk, who grew up 50 miles north of Cincinnati and went to college at Ohio State.
