Monday Night Football is the biggest day of the week for football fans. It's primetime and the only game on television. Sometimes we get treated to great matchups and other times you wish you didn't have to see two particular teams play.
Here is a look at the rest of the schedule and how the game looks
Nov. 7 Indianapolis Colts vs. New England Patriots - This is the game everyone has been waiting for. The Patriots have dominated this series lately. They always seem to know how to rattle Manning. Will this be Manning's year? Will the Colts finally win cause they have a solid defense? Or will Bellechik and Bradystill have the answer for the Colts offense? Can't wait to find out.
Nov. 14 Dallas Cowboys vs. Philadelphia Eagles - So far the Eagles are in a downward spiral after giving up 49 points to Denver and having no running game. The Cowboys are playing good football and have a chance to be at the top of the tough NFC East. This game will put one team further away from finishing at the top. It's always a good game when these two rivals play each other.
Nov. 21 Minnesota Vikings vs. Green Bay Packers - Do we have to suffer again? Minnesota already won the first meeting after being down 17-0 at halftime. Before the season this matched looked great. A potential matchup between the two teams fighting for the top of the NFC Central. Farve vs Culpepper. Well the Chicago Bears are leading that division and this matchup features two of the worst teams not only in the division but league. Culpepper is done for the season. The Vikings team are a running joke. Farve looks like he should have retired last year. Injuries have decimated both teams and it shows. This game will be for pride only.
Nov. 28 Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Indianapolis Colts - A tough test for the Colts at home. Pittsburgh plays very well on the road. Big Ben doesn't lose often as a starter. Pittsburgh defense looked shaky against Baltimore's anemic offense. So they better be ready for this matchup. The Colts will use the dome and their speed to get to Big Ben. If the Colts are still undefeated this will be a tough game for them to come out unfeated.
Dec. 5 Seattle Seahawks vs. Philadelphia Eagles - Who knows if by this game the Eagles will have turned their season around. If they still have no defense then Shaun Alexander will have a career night against them. He shines when the Seahawks play in the national spotlight (4TD's on Sunday night football vs Houston).
Dec. 12 New Orleans Saints vs. Atlanta Falcons - Well the only reason people will watch this game is for Michael Vick. By this time the Saints might be playing for the #1 pick in next years draft. The Falcons probably will be gearing up for the playoffs. Don't get too excited about this one.
Dec. 19 Green Bay Packers vs. Baltimore Ravens - Again do we have to suffer? The Ravens put on a courageous performance against Pittsburgh on Monday night where they moved the ball very well for a team ranked last in scoring offense. The storyline in this game will probably be the last Monday Night game for Brett Farve (assuming this is his last season). That will be the only reason to watch.
Dec. 26 New England Patriots vs. New York Jets - Final Monday Night football game for ABC. Next year it switched to ESPN who owns the rights from 2006-2013. That might be the biggest news. Jets probably won't be in the playoffs. The Patriots are the same team as the Super Bowl years.
But of course I'll be glued to the tv for every Monday Night game no matter the teams cause I'm a football junkie.
