Sunday was quite a crazy day for NFL fans. The day was full of shocking upsets with frontrunners falling and playoff dreams coming to an end for many teams. It was also a day full of exciting victories with teams locking down their playoff seeds and securing their places in the postseason.
With Sunday in the books, fans are beginning to look ahead to the postseason while also looking forward to tonight with a curiosity about what the NFL has planned for tonight. After all, most weeks end with a game on Monday night.
So just what awaits fans this evening?
Who plays Monday Night Football tonight, January 9?
Tonight, there will not be a Monday Night Football game which means there are no teams playing on Monday Night. All 32 teams played over the weekend, with the NFL opting not to include a Monday night match-up as part of its Week 18 schedule.
As there was no Monday night game on the schedule, Week 18 instead came to a close on Sunday night with the Green Bay Packers and Detriot Lions game. And while there isn’t a Monday game this evening, we know there will be at least one Monday night game ahead.
As part of the NFL postseason schedule, the NFL has announced there will be a Wild Card Weekend playoff game on Monday, Jan. 16, 2023. It’s possible that will be the final Monday night game of the season, but we can’t rule out the NFL scheduling another NFL game during the Conference round of the playoffs.
