Jon Gruden spent many years in the ESPN broadcast booth for Monday Night Football games, but he’ll only be on two of the broadcasts this season.

Gruden has returned to the sidelines with the Raiders and his team has been scheduled for two games on Monday nights this season. They will host the Rams in Week One and the Broncos in Week 16 as bookends to this year’s slate of Monday night action.

That first Raiders game will kick off at 10:20 p.m. ET after the Jets and Lions play in Detroit at 7:10 p.m. ET. All of the other kickoffs will be at 8:15 p.m. ET, which is 15 minutes earlier than games kicked off during Gruden’s final year in the booth.

Week One: Jets at Lions; Rams at Raiders.

Week Two: Seahawks at Bears.

Week Three: Steelers at Buccaneers.

Week Four: Chiefs at Broncos.

Week Five: Redskins at Saints.

Week Six: 49ers at Packers.

Week Seven: Giants at Falcons.

Week Eight: Patriots at Bills.

Week Nine: Titans at Cowboys.

Week 10: Giants at 49ers.

Week 11: Chiefs at Rams (Mexico City).

Week 12: Titans at Texans.

Week 13: Redskins at Eagles.

Week 14: Vikings at Seahawks.

Week 15: Saints at Panthers.

Week 16: Broncos at Raiders.

  1. What the hell do the Jaguars have to do to get a Monday night game? One of the best four teams in the league, and not a sniff. One of the best stadiums in the league, and not a sniff. The Jets? The Bears? The 49ers? The Titans came in second in the division and got two Monday night games… How is this possible? The Buccaneers? I guess the worse the record, the better the chance you have of getting a Monday night game. That schedule is absolutely

    Dudesource – you should be happy about that because it is nothing but a disadvantage to play Monday night games.

  3. I dunno, this looks like a huge upgrade in quality-of-schedule over recent past seasons of MNF.

    )))))))))))))

    Aside from the Titans – Cowboys & Seahawks – Bears games.

  5. The Dolphins have had an out-of-country game and atleast 3-4 prime time games the past 3 years in a row. Watch them be sneaky good and go 9 wins now that they have only 1 game. I love to watch my team in primetime, but it is a curse and a disadvantage; especially Thursday Night. The 49ers are the “golden team” this year for appearances and my guess the 5-0 was a fluke. The Jags will also fall back to as they had the 3rd easiest schedule last year. I understand the popularity of the Cowboys, Packers and Steelers and this makes sense, but I smell a ratings disaster without the Kneeling controversy.

  6. Glad they are on MNF because I get to watch doubleheaders on Sunday instead of being limited to 2 games. Can’t wait for them to move to Vegas so I can have more games to watch on TV.

  7. Can’t say I understand the NFL at all anymore. The past 2 years the scheduling and games have been atrocious. A bunch of us got together for MNF football parties for years but since every game has turned into blow outs we don’t bother anymore. A potential “slight” upgrade this season but still garbage. Isn’t the point to have high TV ratings?!?!

  8. Giving the Rams a home game in Mexico City makes sense since they will have moved there by week 6.

  9. Who ever thought that Jon effin Gruden would be the NFL’s Monday Night Messiah? They are really working this angle in hope that this plays out to a NE VS Gangland AFCCG.

    So I ask of those who believe the NFL sets up NE to win, is that what’s happening here?
