Monday Night Football Doubleheaders: Not Really Doubleheaders

While I was enjoying the quiet …

One thing that I think a lot of people missed with Disney’s announcement of the Monday night games set for Sept. 19—as part of the league’s coordinated “trickle” release of the schedule this week, ahead of Thursday’s full release—was that it isn’t actually a doubleheader. The Vikings-Eagles game, set for 8:30 p.m. ET, will kickoff right around when the Titans-Bills game (at 7:15 p.m. ET on ESPN) goes to halftime. And when I pointed that out on social media Monday morning, some fans got real worked up over it.
