NFL Monday Night Football Schedule 2021 NFL Schedule

The Monday Night Football schedule is here, and there will be no doubleheader on Monday night for Week 1. There are a lot of premier games this year to wrap up the week, which wasn't the case the last few years as the MNF schedule was kind of weak. There are a couple of blowout potential games early, but then we get to some premier matchups like the Colts at the Ravens, Bills at Titans, and Saints at Seahawks. There should be many NFC West matchups on the line, as the Rams take on the Cardinals late in the year and the 49ers. The final MNF game of the year could have some playoff implications with the Saints welcoming the Dolphins.

Monday Night Football Storylines

The opener this year will be in Vegas, where the Raiders do not start the season in the easiest way. They have to face the Ravens, who have thrashed Week 1 opponents over the last few years. The next few matchups are a couple of divisional rivalry games, but in Week 3 Dak Prescott vs Jalen Hurts could be a fun one.

In Week 5, the Colts travel to Baltimore in what could be a future AFC playoff matchup. Carson Wentz will get a taste of some AFC defenses for a change. Another potential playoff matchup is a week later with Buffalo heading to Tennessee.

We could start to see some rookie quarterbacks on Monday Night Football, as Chicago takes on the Steelers in November. Justin Fields could be already under center by that point. The same could go for Trey Lance a few weeks later. Not the easiest of defenses to face early in a career, but everything will depend on the team's records at that point.
