ESPN to fill airtime with classic Monday Night Football games

  • March 28, 2020

The coronavirus pandemic has brought live sports to a halt, leaving networks to dig into the archives to fill the airtime void. 

The next five weeks, ESPN will fill its Monday prime-time slot with classic offerings from Monday Night Football, the network announced Friday

Re-airs begin this Monday, March 30, at 8 p.m. and will continue at that time weekly through April 27. 

The series kicks off with the Rams’ 54-51 win against the Chiefs in 2018, the highest-scoring contest in Monday Night Football history

The April 6 date will show the Saints’ first game at the Superdome after Hurricane Katrina, a 2006 contest most memorable for Steve Gleason’s blocked punt

On April 13, the network will show the first meeting between Brett Favre and his former Packers team at the Vikings’ Metrodome in 2009. 

The final two weeks feature a Peyton Manning vs. Tom Brady, Colts-Patriots showdown from 2005 (Manning’s first victory in Foxborough), as well as a dramatic Cowboys win against the Bills in 2007.
