Monday Night Football gets underway in 2018 with the annual first-week doubleheader. Since 2006, the first week of the NFL season kicks off with a game on Thursday night and ends with two games on Monday night. This year, the initial Monday night game will feature the New Orleans Saints traveling to Minnesota to take on the Vikings. The Saints are coming off a third consecutive 7-9 season. The Vikings never recovered from injuries to QB Teddy Bridgewater and RB Adrian Peterson and finished a disappointing 8-8. Peterson now plays in New Orleans and adds another element to an already outstanding offense led by QB Drew Brees.


The second Monday night game of the NFL season’s first week will take place in Denver where the Broncos will take on AFC West Division rival the Chargers, which will play their first season in Los Angeles since 1960. For Denver, 2017 marks the 26th consecutive season that the Broncos will appear on Monday Night Football. It is the longest current streak in the NFL.


There are several huge matchups throughout the season on Monday night. After the initial week, the New York Giants will play again on Monday night on Sept. 18. The Giants will take on the Detroit Lions. The game will celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Giants’ Super Bowl XLII victory over the New England Patriots. The game pits two of the NFL’s best quarterbacks, veterans Eli Manning of New York and Matthew Stafford of Detroit.


On Oct. 2, the Washington Redskins make the first of two October appearances on Monday Night Football. The Redskins are one of eight teams that will play twice on Monday nights this year. Washington will take on Kansas City, the winners of the AFC West in 2016. The Chiefs will also make two appearances on Monday night and, like Washington, both will be in October. Kansas City will host the Broncos on Oct. 30.

Washington QB Kirk Cousins is one of the NFL’s up-and-coming quarterbacks. He will take on second-year QB Carson Wentz of the Philadelphia Eagles on Oct. 23. Wentz started as a rookie last season and won his first three games. The Redskins-Eagles matchup is also a key NFC East game and one of the nine divisional matchups on Monday night this season.


In November, Stafford and Detroit will travel to Green Bay to meet Aaron Rodgers and the rest of the Packers on Nov. 6. The Packers and Lions are the favorites in this year’s NFC North Division race. On the 20th of the month, reigning NFL MVP Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons will play in Seattle in a rematch of one of last year’s divisional playoff games. The Falcons will have a tough time in Seattle. The Seahawks have won 11 straight Monday night games.


Tom Brady will lead the defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots against AFC East rival Miami on December 11. The Dolphins will play this season without starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill who injured a knee in the preseason. The 2017 MNF season will end on Christmas night when Derek Carr leads the Oakland Raiders against Wentz and the Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia.
