The good news for NFL fans is that we still have plenty of football left on the schedule, and that means plenty of amazing Monday matchups over the next nine weeks.
If football fanatics need to know what they are looking forward to over the next few months, these are the good, the bad and the ugly of the remaining Monday Night Football games.
Nov. 5, 8:30 p.m. ET, Philadelphia Eagles at New Orleans Saints
The Philadelphia Eagles are one of the most polarizing teams in the NFL, but they have underperformed in 2012. With a New Orleans Saints team in the same predicament, this is the kind of battle that Monday Night Football was made for.
With two of the most potent offensive units in the NFL, the Eagles and the Saints will put on a showcase display worthy of the national stage. While the defenses will be playing better, NFL fans and fantasy owners should expect huge statistical days from both teams.
Even if you don’t have a horse in this race, there are too many storylines and too much potential for a shootout for even the most casual NFL fans to miss this action.
Dec. 17, 8:30 p.m. ET, New York Jets at Tennessee Titans
While the New York Jets are one of the NFL’s media darlings, their Dec. 17 matchup with the Tennessee Titans will be one of the worst Monday Night Football games of 2012.
As much as the Titans have started to find their rhythm on both sides of the ball, neither team is considered elite. If you want a 17-14 battle with plenty of turnovers and mismanaged football, this is your dream matchup.
There is always the potential that the Jets can resurrect their season and become a contender before Dec. 17, but as of right now, this will be a Monday night better spent watching NBA basketball.
Nov. 12, 8:30 p.m. ET, Kansas City Chiefs vs. Pittsburgh Steelers
The Pittsburgh Steelers will likely steal a spot in the playoffs like they do every season, but their matchup with the Kansas City Chiefs on Nov. 12 will be terrible; unless you’re a fan of the Steelers.
Pittsburgh will have an answer for the oversimplified offensive unit, and the poor play of everyone on the Chiefs' team will result in the worst beating on the Monday Night Football schedule.
This is one of those nights where NHL hockey will be missed.
