The first week of Monday Night Football on ESPN will open with a pair of last year’s most disappointing teams, followed by two of the pleasant surprises.

As has become tradition, MNF will open with a doubleheader, with the Giants at the Lions in the early game, followed by the Chargers at the Cardinals in the West Coast nightcap.

The Super Bowl champion Seahawks will only show up once on MNF, though the Giants, Eagles, Colts, Bears, Jets, Redskins, Steelers and Saints will get two turns each.

The Bills, Browns, Buccaneers, Jaguars, Raiders and Vikings won’t appear on the ESPN broadcast this year.

Here’s a look at the full Monday Night Football schedule:

Week 1: N.Y. Giants at Detroit
San Diego at Arizona
Week 2: Philadelphia at Indianapolis
Week 3: Chicago at N.Y. Jets
Week 4: New England at Kansas City
Week 5: Seattle at Washington
Week 6: San Francisco at St. Louis
Week 7: Houston at Pittsburgh
Week 8: Washington at Dallas
Week 9: Indianapolis at N.Y. Giants
Week 10: Carolina at Philadelphia
Week 11: Pittsburgh at Tennessee
Week 12: Baltimore at New Orleans
Week 13: Miami at N.Y. Jets
Week 14: Atlanta at Green Bay
Week 15: New Orleans at Chicago
Week 16: Denver at Cincinnati

    Maybe a little Cardinal pay-back in order for “accidentally” falling on Cooper’s leg and breaking it last pre-season? These guys play like they go to the same WalGreens as Seattle.

    Coincidence that all the teams that get two mnf games are on the east coast? I think not. The Seahawks only get 1 game but both the Jersey Giants and the Jersey Jets each get two games on mnf? #eastcoastbias

    It’s NYC bias not east coast

    Once again the Eagles get more Monday nighters than the Patriots. Never understood that.

    Thank god I’m taking MBA courses on Monday night.

    That way I can skip the primetime unworthy Giants.

    MNF has an NFC East bias, thus I rarely watch.

    The Texans and Steelers should be a huge ratings boost.

    The Giants are a money maker. You are welcome.
