The Cincinnati Bengals announced Thursday night that they're scheduled to have a record-setting five primetime games during the 2022 NFL season. But one of their most anticipated non-primetime games on the road will be against the New Orleans Saints in Week 6, as former LSU quarterback Joe Burrow and receiver Ja'Marr Chase return to the state (Louisiana) in which they starred in college and the venue in which they won a national title.

Burrow, Chase and the Bengals are scheduled to play in New Orleans' Mercedes-Benz Superdome on Oct. 16 at 1 p.m. on CBS.

In the College Football Playoff National Championship on Jan. 13, 2020, Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence helped the Tigers to a 17-7 lead in the second quarter, but Burrow rallied his team - also the Tigers - to a 42-25 win. Last September, Lawrence and the Jacksonville Jaguars led the Bengals 14-0 at half, before Burrow rallied Cincinnati to a 24-21 win.

The Bengals will open the season against the Steelers for the first time. Cincinnati is scheduled to play a pair of Sunday Night Football games, including their second meeting of the season with Pittsburgh in Week 11.

The Bengals' Week 4 meeting with the Miami Dolphins on Thursday Night Football could feature the first-ever NFL regular-season meeting between Burrow and Tua Tagovailoa, the top two quarterbacks selected in the 2020 NFL Draft.

The Bengals are scheduled to play two Monday Night Football games, against the Browns in Cleveland in Week 8 on Oct. 31 and against the Buffalo Bills at Paul Brown Stadium in Week 17 on Jan. 2, 2023.

The Bengals' Week 15 game against the Buccaneers in Tampa on Dec. 18 could feature the first - and potentially only - meeting between Burrow and future Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback Tom Brady.

The Bengals' preseason schedule includes a Super Bowl rematch with the Los Angeles Rams at Paul Brown Stadium, on a date to be announced.
