The NFL revealed Monday Night Football's full 2023 slate as part of Schedule Release Day, which has become a major event in the league's annual calendar in recent years.
The 54th season of the American sports institution will kick off on Sept. 11, when the Buffalo Bills visit the New York Jets in quarterback Aaron Rodgers' debut with "Gang Green" after 18 seasons in Green Bay.
MNF will also host a Christmas Day game that airs exclusively on ABC, where the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers face off.
But all eyes may fall on Week 11 when the Philadelphia Eagles and Kansas City Chiefs square off in a rematch of Super Bowl LVII, which Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs won earlier this year.
Ironically, MNF's season concludes on a Saturday when the Detroit Lions visit the Dallas Cowboys on Dec. 30.
While we have a good picture of the season ahead, Monday Night Football is now subject to flex scheduling, which allows the league to move more competitive matchups from a week's Sunday afternoon slate to Monday night. This goes into effect Week 12 and onward.
ESPN is the home of almost all of the MNF games on the schedule. However, ABC will once again host matchups exclusive to the network in Weeks 2, 3, 14, and 16, on top of select weeks when games simulcast on both ABC and ESPN.
2023 also marks the sophomore season for play-by-play announcer Joe Buck and color analyst Troy Aikman.
