Bengals 2015 Regular Season Schedule Released

CINCINNATI -- The Bengals’ 2015 regular-season schedule was released today by the National Football League. Cincinnati, bidding for a fifth consecutive trip to the playoffs, is scheduled for four national prime-time games, tying a franchise record set previously in 1990 and 2007. Two of those contests will be at Paul Brown Stadium.
The Bengals will host Cleveland in an NFL Network game on Thurs., Nov. 5, and Houston will visit PBS the next week, for an ESPN contest on Mon., Nov. 16. The prime-time road games on the schedule are also in consecutive weeks, with Cincinnati to play at San Francisco on NBC’s Sunday Night Football on Dec. 20 and at Denver on ESPN on Mon., Dec. 28.
Among the four prime-time games, only the Sunday night contest at San Francisco is subject to possible flex scheduling by the NFL.
Including preseason, the Bengals will play a total of five prime-time games in 2015. The club visits Tampa Bay on Aug. 24 in an ESPN preseason contest. The total of five prime-time games including preseason also ties a franchise record. In 2007, Cincinnati also had one in preseason and four in the regular season.
The Bengals will open the regular season on the road for the sixth straight year, visiting Oakland at 4:25 p.m. ET on Sun., Sept. 13. It will be only the third Bengals season opener on the West Coast, joining a 1968 game at San Diego (first game in Bengals history) and a 1992 contest at Seattle.
Cincinnati’s home opener will be on Sun., Sept. 20 at 1 p.m. vs. San Diego.
“I say every year that we already have known all our home and road opponents for the year, but the four national games do stick out,” said Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis. “It’s a compliment to our franchise, a challenge for the team, and exciting for our fans to have the two home games in November. The other thing you look at as a coach is closing the season against Baltimore, when you expect there could be a lot at stake.”
TV broadcasts of the Bengals’ four games on cable -- one in preseason and three in regular season -- will also be simulcast in Cincinnati by a local non-cable station, yet to be determined.
During a maximum of two weeks for the six-week period of Weeks 5-10, the NFL may choose to flex a Sunday afternoon game to Sunday night, with the originally scheduled Sunday night game moving to Sunday afternoon.
During Weeks 11-17, all Sunday games are subject to possible flex among the three standard kickoff times -- early afternoon, late afternoon and night.

INDIANS-WHITE SOX

CHICAGO (AP) -- Danny Salazar tossed six scoreless innings and was backed by first-inning home runs from Nick Swisher and Mike Aviles, leading the Cleveland Indians past the Chicago White Sox 5-2 on Thursday night.

Salazar was coming off his worst start of the season in which he allowed five earned runs in 4 2/3 innings against Texas on May 16. He recovered to help the Indians take three of four from Chicago while winning their third straight for the first time this season.

Salazar (5-1) walked three, but struck out eight while giving up five hits to hand Chicago its first series loss at home.

John Danks (2-4) allowed five runs and six hits in 5 1/3 innings.

Chicago's Jose Abreu went 1 for 4 and extended his hitting streak to 16 games. Tyler Flowers hit a two-run homer with two outs in the ninth off Bryan Shaw to avoid the shutout.

MANFRED-ROSE

NEW YORK (AP) -- Pete Rose's role at the All-Star game in Cincinnati will be determined by Major League Baseball and the Reds after they determine what other obligations the banned career hits leader has.

Rose began work as a studio analyst for Fox this month. The network will broadcast the game, which is being played in Rose's hometown on July 14.

Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred said Thursday that MLB is talking to the Reds about Rose's involvement.

Rose agreed to a lifetime ban in 1989 after an MLB investigation concluded he bet on Reds' games while managing the team. He has applied for reinstatement, but Manfred has not given a timetable for a decision.

HAWKS-CARROLL INJURY

ATLANTA (AP) -- DeMarre Carroll's agent says an MRI on Carroll's left knee showed no structural damage, and Carroll is hoping to play for the Hawks by Friday night's Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals.

Mark Bartelstein told The Associated Press on Thursday that Carroll has only a knee sprain and "maybe a little" bone bruise.

Carroll celebrated the news on his Twitter feed.

Bartelstein says Carroll will receive treatment for the soreness Thursday and Friday in hopes of playing against Cleveland in Game 2.

Carroll's knee appeared to buckle as he was driving to the basket with about 5 minutes left in the 97-89 loss to the Cavaliers. Carroll couldn't put pressure on the leg as he was helped off the floor.

B10-OHIO ST-INDIANA

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Scott Donley's three-RBI double broke a tie in the eighth inning and sixth-seeded Indiana beat Ohio State 5-3 Thursday in an elimination game of the Big Ten tournament.

Kyle Hart pitched six scoreless innings for the defending Big Ten champion Hoosiers (33-21). Hart allowed six hits and no runs or walks. Indiana will play the loser of the Michigan vs. Iowa game on Friday.

The Buckeyes (35-20) didn't get on the board until Nick Sergakis' RBI groundout scored Ronnie Dawson in the seventh inning. Craig Nenning followed with an RBI single to tie it 2-2.

Brad Hartong gave Indiana a 1-0 lead with a solo home run in the fourth inning.

Seventh-seeded Ohio State has lost five-straight games after losing to Iowa in their tournament opener on Thursday.
