NFL Monday Night Football schedule 2021

Monday Night Football is a staple of the primetime television lineup for the fall and winter months. When NFL schedule makers sit down to make sense of the busy regular-season slate, preference is naturally given towards placing as many appealing matchups as possible in the evening slots of MNF, Thursday Night Football, and Sunday Night Football.

For the coming season, early returns say that the powers that be have done a bang-up job. There are plenty of intriguing matchups to be found on this year’s MNF slate. Here’s a complete look at what to expect each week. All games kickoff at 8:15 p.m. and can be found on ESPN with the Week 1 tilt also scheduled to be simulcast on ABC.

Week 1 – Sept. 13, 2021

Baltimore Ravens at Las Vegas Raiders

Allegiant Stadium in Sin City will serve as a fantastic backdrop when two AFC playoff hopefuls square off. Big things are expected from Lamar Jackson and the Raiders this season, while Derek Carr and the Raiders are looking to prove that they belong in the conversation.

Week 2 – Sept. 20, 2021

Detroit Lions at Green Bay Packers

The NFC North could be one of the more interesting divisions in football this season. The Lions have a new head coach in Dan Campbell to spearhead a rebuilding effort, while there has been plenty of offseason intrigue surrounding Aaron Rodgers and the Packers.

Week 3 – Sept. 27, 2021

Philadelphia Eagles at Dallas Cowboys

Last season, the NFC East, as a whole, took a step backwards. The Eagles and Cowboys both enter 2021 with clear directives to right the ship. It’s an intriguing QB battle as well as Philadelphia’s Jalen Hurts goes toe-to-toe with Dak Prescott of Dallas.

Week 4 – Oct. 4, 2021

Las Vegas Raiders at Los Angeles Chargers

The Silver and Black have a quick turnaround back to MNF in Week 4. They’ll be hitting the road to take on Justin Herbert and the Chargers. Los Angeles has been a flavor of the week in preseason, but we should know if the hype is warranted by the time we get to this game.

Week 5 – Oct. 11, 2021

Indianapolis Colts at Baltimore Ravens

When you can close out the NFL betting week with the local favorite in action, life is good. The Ravens hit the road for an interesting tilt with the Colts. While it’s early in the season, this one could have some ramifications on the AFC playoff picture as the season moves along.

Week 6 – Oct. 18, 2021

Buffalo Bills at Tennessee Titans

Another week of MNF, another meeting of playoff contenders. Josh Allen and the Bills are looking to get over the hump in the AFC, while Ryan Tannehill and the Titans have been in contention for several years running.

Week 7 – Oct. 25, 2021

New Orleans Saints at Seattle Seahawks

Some NFL stadiums are just built for primetime festivities. Seattle’s Lumen Field undoubtedly falls into that category. The vaunted 12th man should be jacked beyond belief as Russell Wilson and the Seahawks welcome a Saints club that’s beginning a new era sans Drew Brees.

Week 8 – Nov. 1, 2021

New York Giants at Kansas City Chiefs

The Giants have been several steps back of the league’s elite clubs in recent times, but there’s optimism that better days are ahead. Big Blue will have quite the test on its hands for this MNF matchup as they hit the road to face off with Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs.

Week 9 – Nov. 8, 2021

Chicago Bears at Pittsburgh Steelers

Two of the NFL’s most history-laden franchises will receive the MNF treatment in Week 9. The Bears gave the fanbase a jolt with the selection of Justin Fields in the NFL Draft. They’ll be on the road to take on a Steelers club that wrapped up the 2020 campaign in disappointing fashion.

Week 10 – Nov. 15, 2021

Los Angeles Rams at San Francisco 49ers

The race for the NFC West crown could be one to watch this season as all four squads have at least a chance of making it happen. This game between the long-time rival Rams and 49ers could provide some much-needed clarity as the NFL weeks move into double-digits.

Week 11 – Nov. 22, 2021

New York Giants at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The Giants make their second MNF appearance in four weeks, and they once again find themselves with a very daunting road trip. Tom Brady and the defending Super Bowl champion Buccaneers will be the host under the lights for the last NFL game before Thanksgiving.

Week 12 – Nov. 29, 2021

Seattle Seahawks at Washington Football Team

Two NFC playoff clubs from a season ago both have their sights firmly set on returning to the dance. Seattle and Washington were both bounced in the Wild Card round last year. This late-season tilt could provide clues on whether either side can make it back again.

Week 13 – Dec. 6, 2021

New England Patriots at Buffalo Bills

The Patriots owned the AFC East for years entering 2021, but the Bills emphatically announced that a new sheriff was in town when all was said and done. This divisional race could be one of the most hotly contested of the season with this MNF game providing lots of answers.

Week 14 – Dec. 13, 2021

Los Angeles Rams at Arizona Cardinals

It’s another NFC West showdown, this time out in the desert at State Farm Stadium. The electric Kyler Murray leads the way for the Cardinals as they welcome a Rams club that has a new QB behind center in Matthew Stafford.

Week 15 – Dec. 20, 2021

Minnesota Vikings at Chicago Bears

A late December affair at Soldier Field could have some elements in play which set the stage for a hard-hitting NFC North showdown. The Vikings and Bears could very well be squaring off with playoff implications in the air to boot.

Week 16 – Dec. 27, 2021

Miami Dolphins at New Orleans Saints

The Mercedes-Benz Superdome is another excellent host for night games, and this could be a seriously entertaining one to enjoy during the holidays. The up-and-coming Dolphins will be on the road to take on a Saints team that’s looking to put on a show for the home faithful.

Week 17 – Jan. 3, 2022

Cleveland Browns at Pittsburgh Steelers

Is there a better way to close out MNF than with a game that could potentially decide a division? That’s what we get in Week 17 as the Browns hit the road to face the AFC North rival Steelers, a meeting of two clubs that aren’t big fans of one another.

Ravens/Washington Football Team MNF schedule

There will be some local flavor on MNF three times this season. The Baltimore Ravens get the primetime treatment for a road trip in Week 1 and a home tilt in Week 5, while the Washington Football Team will defend the home turf under the lights in Week 12. Here’s an early look at the three matchups.

Week 1 – Sept. 13, 2021

Baltimore Ravens at Las Vegas Raiders

2021PFPAMoneylineAgainst the SpreadTotals
Baltimore27.318.512-611-77-11
Las Vegas27.129.98-88-812-3-1

The MNF slate and the Ravens season opens up in Las Vegas. While the Raiders fell short of the postseason last year, the talent is there to be in the mix. Baltimore will likely walk on the field as the favorite, but it’ll be quite the test to ring in the new campaign.

Week 5 – Oct. 11, 2021

Indianapolis Colts at Baltimore Ravens

2021PFPAMoneylineAgainst the SpreadTotals
Indianapolis27.922.911-69-810-7
Baltimore27.318.512-611-77-11

It’s a meeting of two playoff teams from a year ago, both of whom have legitimate postseason ambitions entering the new season. While both sides have their sights set on division crowns, this could be a critical matchup once tiebreakers enter the equation later in the year.

Week 12 – Nov. 29, 2021

Seattle Seahawks at Washington Football Team

2021PFPAMoneylineAgainst the SpreadTotals
Seattle28.223.612-58-98-9
Washington21.121.27-1010-76-11

Washington was a surprise playoff team last year, while Seattle has at least been in the mix for several years running. By the time we get to Week 12, we should have a good idea of where both teams stand as we get set for a potentially impactful NFC showdown.

3 most memorable MNF moments for Ravens/WFT

The history of MNF stretches back to the 1970 NFL season. The two local franchises have had plenty of moments on the big stage, but their performance of late on MNF has been vastly different. Since 2010, the Ravens are 9-4 in this window, while Washington is just 2-13. Here’s a look back at a trio of memorable games for the two clubs over that span.

Dec. 14, 2020 – Ravens 47-42 over Browns

In one of the most thrilling regular-season games of 2020, Baltimore took the trek to Cleveland and a shootout followed. The Ravens appeared to have the game in hand at the half, but the Browns stormed back after the break. A Justin Tucker field goal would prove to be the difference-maker in the end.

Dec. 7, 2015 – Cowboys 19-16 over Washington

The Dallas-Washington rivalry has been one of the best in NFL annals. While this game wasn’t filled with scoring, a slugfest that turned into a defensive struggle with both sides having trouble hanging onto the ball turned into a recipe for entertainment. Dan Bailey nailed a 54-yard field goal in the end to give the visiting Cowboys the victory.

Nov. 24, 2015 – Ravens 34-27 over Saints

MNF in New Orleans is typically a good time, and this one fits the bill without issue. The Saints held a slight edge at the half, but the Ravens got it going from there and managed to hang on for the seven-point win. Justin Forsett had himself a night out of the Ravens backfield, rushing for 182 yards and two scores.
