Cowboys vs. Bengals 2012: Game preview, kickoff time, TV schedule and more

Tom Pennington

The Dallas Cowboys will head to Ohio to face the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday in a key game for both teams' playoff hopes.

If the Dallas Cowboys want to keep their playoff hopes alive, they're going to need to start winning games with a bit more consistency. They beat the bottom-feeding Philadelphia Eagles for the second time this season last weekend, and are currently 6-6 and in second place in the NFC East behind the New York Giants. Their next test will be a tough one, heading to Ohio to meet the high-flying Cincinnati Bengals.

Cincinnati has done well to prove that last season's playoff appearance was not a fluke, with Andy Dalton leading the team to a 7-5 record thus far. They have won their last four games and are only sitting two games back of the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC Central division, which makes this a key game in the playoff race for both teams.

Game Date/Time: Sunday, Noon CT

Location: Paul Brown Stadium
