The 2023 NFL season is off and running, and the “Monday Night Football” contests have already provided plenty of drama during the opening three weeks.
In Week 1, the Jets lost Aaron Rodgers to a season-ending injury yet stunned the Bills in overtime with a walk-off punt return touchdown. In Week 2, dominating defensive efforts from the Saints and Steelers resulted in division wins over the Panthers and Browns, respectively. And in Week 3, the Eagles ran past the Buccaneers and the Bengals got their first win with a gritty performance against the Rams.
The rest of the Monday night lineup leaves a lot to be desired aside from Eagles-Chiefs (Week 11) and Ravens-49ers (Week 16), but it’s set to look a lot better down the stretch thanks to flex scheduling, which extended to “Monday Night Football” starting this year. That gives the NFL the ability to move Sunday games to Monday night and vise versa starting in Week 13, granted the leagues makes those switches at least 12 days beforehand.
