Monday Night Football Schedule 2013: Highlighting Top Remaining Matchups
Monday Night Football is back in Week 6 with a game between the San Diego Chargers and the Indianapolis Colts, but it’s time to look even further ahead to the best matchups of the season.
The league has done a great job giving fans a variety of different teams and offering the most intriguing pairings possible in prime time, which made it hard to trim this list down to just a handful of must-watch contests.
Here is a look at the complete Monday Night Football schedule for the remainder of the 2013 campaign and my picks for the top contests left on the slate.
|Week||Away Team||Home Team|
|6||Indianapolis Colts||San Diego Chargers|
|7||Minnesota Vikings||New York Giants|
|8||Seattle Seahawks||St. Louis Rams|
|9||Chicago Bears||Green Bay Packers|
|10||Miami Dolphins||Tampa Bay Buccaneers|
|11||New England Patriots||Carolina Panthers|
|12||San Francisco 49ers||Washington Redskins|
|13||New Orleans Saints||Seattle Seahawks|

|16||Atlanta Falcons||San Francisco 49ers|
Week 9: Chicago Bears at Green Bay Packers
This historic NFC North rivalry will be on display for the entire country to watch and could have far-reaching implications that determine the playoff picture in the NFC.
The Bears are currently leading the division, but the Packers aren’t far behind and could be positioned to take the lead by the time this game comes around.
If history is any indication, this one will be Green Bay’s to lose—especially at Lambeau Field. The Packers have won the last six and eight of the past nine meetings, plus they haven’t dropped a game to the Bears at home since 2007.
Both sides should be well above .500 by the time this contest rolls around, and there is no doubt that the stakes will be high. You won’t want to miss it.
Week 13: New Orleans Saints at Seattle Seahawks
The Saints' high-powered offense is heading to Seattle to take on the Seahawks' bone-crushing defense in a matchup that will likely determine the seeding at the top of the NFC playoff picture.
Which team will win in Week 13?
Both teams have been nothing short of excellent in 2013 and—barring an unforeseen circumstance—that level of play should continue all the way up through Week 13.
This one could either be a defensive battle or a shootout, as both teams have the personnel and the weapons to win both kinds of contests.
Expect New Orleans to try and dictate the pace of the game and put up a ton of scores through the air, while Seattle will try to slow it down and pound the ball with superstar running back Marshawn Lynch.
Don’t be surprised if this is the marquee Monday Night Football game of the year.
Week 15: Baltimore Ravens at Detroit Lions
The defending Super Bowl champion Ravens started the 2013 campaign on the wrong foot, meaning there is a good chance that this late-season matchup will carry a ton of weight and could be the difference between them making and missing the postseason.
That also holds true for the Lions, as the up-and-down club will have trouble winning the division but should definitely be in the hunt for a wild-card spot come Week 15.
Both squads have their flaws but are overall solid football teams that are capable of putting together great outings.
Hopefully, we get to see the best from both sides in a Monday Night Football thriller.
