ESPN MNF 2020 Schedule Announced

ESPN Monday Night Football

The 51st season of Monday Night Football will kick off on ESPN with a doubleheader Monday, September 14 – Pittsburgh Steelers vs. New York Giants (7:15pm ET) and Tennessee Titans vs. Denver Broncos (10:10pm / 8:10pm MT).

ESPN’s 17-game prime-time schedule in 2020 will feature 11 of 12 playoff teams from 2019, including both the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs and NFC champion San Francisco 49ers.

In the MNF opener, two-time Super Bowl champion Ben Roethlisberger, who missed most of last season with an injury, is expected to make his return to the field for the Steelers against Saquon Barkley and the Giants at MetLife Stadium in a match-up of legendary NFL franchises.

In the late game, Drew Lock and the Broncos host Ryan Tannehill and the Titans, which advanced to last season’s AFC Championship. The Broncos – who last hosted a MNF opener in 2017 – will extend the NFL’s longest current streak, appearing on MNF for the 29th consecutive season (1992-present).

Beginning in week 2, MNF games will start at 8 p.m. ET (kick off at 8:15 p.m.). Suzy Kolber will host the Monday Night Countdown pregame show throughout the season (6 p.m.), as well as halftime and post-game SportsCenter coverage, from the MNF stadium.

All MNF games will be streamed live on all devices via the ESPN App. Note: fans must receive ESPN’s networks as part of their video subscription from an affiliated provider to watch MNF on the ESPN App.

ESPN Deportes, ESPN’s 24-hour Spanish-language domestic sports network, will again offer a Spanish language production of MNF games in 2020.
