2022 NFL ‘Monday Night Football’ schedule: Week 2 doubleheader highlights slate

The NFL could have a quirk to the league schedule in 2022 as there can be a “Monday Night Football” doubleheader in Week 2 (Sept. 19), with two games being played at the identical time. The primary game will pit the Tennessee Titans on the Buffalo Bills, to be played at 7:15 p.m. ET on ESPN. The Philadelphia Eagles will play host to the Minnesota Vikings within the second game, which can start at 8:30 p.m. ET on ABC. 

Your entire Monday night slate was released on Thursday night, and you possibly can test it out below.

The Bills are expected to be one in all the favorites to achieve the Super Bowl within the AFC, led by Josh Allen and a star-powered offense featuring Stefon Diggs and the emergence of Gabriel Davis. This can be the fifth consecutive 12 months Buffalo will play Tennessee because the Bills have lost their last two games against the Titans. That is the primary time the teams have met in Buffalo since 2018. 

The Eagles had one in all the largest moves of the offseason with the acquisition of A.J. Brown from the Titans and are coming off a playoff appearance last 12 months. The Vikings just missed the playoffs last 12 months, but Justin Jefferson can be making his first visit to Lincoln Financial Field since Philadelphia chosen Jalen Reagor one pick before him within the 2020 NFL Draft. Jefferson is the one receiver in NFL history to have 3,000 receiving yards after his first two seasons. 

The “Monday Night Football” doubleheader had been an opening-week staple on the schedule since 2006, because the late game (typically starting at 10:15 p.m. ET), featured West Coast teams. The Week 1 doubleheader was eliminated last 12 months to feature a Week 18 doubleheader on the ultimate Saturday of the regular season that included any team still fighting for a playoff spot or division title (each were flex games). That Saturday doubleheader will still be played in Week 18 under the brand new television contract. 

In the brand new ESPN/ABC contract with the league, the annual “Monday Night Football” doubleheader was expected to make its return this season with a twist. ESPN will up its slate of games from 17 to 23 and could have three games exclusively on ABC along with games being played on ESPN — so there can be three weeks of “Monday Night Football” doubleheaders in 2022 and every season after. ESPN may also have the correct to flex a “Monday Night Football” matchup from Week 12 through Week 18. ESPN+ may also have an exclusive game, which can be one in all the international games on the calendar.
