With the NFL season coming to a close, every NFL game has become a must-see for NFL fans for good reason. The final games of the season will determine a number of items including which teams will get the final spots in the NFL playoff, the playoffs seedings, and which will be getting the first picks in the 2023 NFL Draft.
Of course, there’s also the fact that with the season coming to an end, we’re one step closer to having no football in our lives. So it’s understandable fans are taking in each game while they can with the offseason fast approaching.
In Week 18, the NFL lined up a variety of must-see divisional games including a special double-header on Saturday night. But what exactly does the NFL have planned for Monday night this week?
Is there a Monday Night Football game tomorrow?
If you’re hoping to enjoy an NFL game on Monday night, we regret to inform you there will not be a Monday Night Football game coming in Week 18. That’s right, there will be no NFL game on Monday night this week with the final game of the week airing on Sunday night.
Why isn’t there a Monday night game this week?
It is not entirely clear why exactly there is no Monday night game scheduled for Week 18, but it seems the biggest factor was the NFL’s desire to have the season close out on a Sunday. Doing so helps to lock in the playoff picture on Sunday evening which will help with scheduling and prevent any playoff games from being up in the air through Monday night.
The good news is there will be at least one Monday night playoff game coming fans’ way as the postseason begins — so we haven’t seen our last Monday Night Football game of the season just yet!
