NFL: How to Watch Monday Night Football Games Live Without Cable

Monday Night Football returns with the Chargers taking on the Colts. Joe Buck, Troy Aikman, and Lisa Salters are on the call. Here's how to watch

Raymond McCain

The 53rd season of Monday Night Football will be like none other as the long-running TV program will have a record-setting 23 games for the 2022 NFL season and the first ESPN+ exclusive game.

ESPN will present 21 regular season games: a Monday night Super Wild Card Game and the 2023 Pro Bowl. Josh Allen, Tom Brady, Joe Burrow, Derek Carr, Justin Herbert, Lamar Jackson, Patrick Mahomes, Kyler Murray, Dak Prescott, Aaron Rodgers, Matt Ryan, Matthew Stafford, and Wilson are a few of the league's best QBs who will take the field on Monday nights. Plus, the best of the best will play under the bright lights of Monday night, as every MVP from 2016 to now is scheduled to appear on MNF this season.

Other Marquee Matchups and Highlights

  • Divisional Champion and Playoff Teams: All 8 division champions and all 14 playoff teams from last season appear on the MNF
  • International Games: The Broncos and Jaguars compete at  London's Wembley Stadium in a special Sunday edition of Monday Night Football. Mexico City will be home to an NFC West dual between the 49ers and Cardinals
  • Doubleheaders: In Week 2, the Titans travel to Buffalo to take on the Bills in a battle between the reigning AFC South and AFC East champions. Later, the Vikings sail to the City of Brotherly Love to take on the Eagles in their third all-time meeting between the pair on Monday Night Football (Eagles are 2-0).
  • Final Week Doubleheader for the Playoffs: For Week 18, ESPN with a simulcast on ABC, will air a special Saturday doubleheader featuring two games with playoff implications. Teams will be determined later in the season.
