The upcoming NFL season promises to be an event like never before. ESPN has released its 2023-24 NFL schedule, packed with 25 thrilling games, including a whopping 20 Monday Night Football games.
The program includes a number of enhancements, flex scheduling, an international exclusive, and a divisional playoff round game – all firsts for ESPN.
The New Face of Monday Night Football
The new season will see Monday Night Football gain prominence with three weeks – Weeks 2, 3, and 14 – featuring multiple games on the same night. Kicking off the season will be Aaron Rodgers’ New York Jets debut as they host the Buffalo Bills in Week 1.
Rodgers’ Jets will be back in Week 9, hosting the Chargers. This is just the beginning of the lineup of signature matchups, marquee teams, and tantalizing storylines set to feature on Monday Night Football.
Super Bowl Rematch and High Profile Teams
One of the most anticipated moments of the season will be the Super Bowl rematch between the Chiefs and Eagles in Week 11.
The Chiefs and Eagles are set for a second appearance, a rare event since the inception of the current era.
Furthermore, multiple appearances by the Cowboys, Bills, Giants, 49ers, Bengals, and Jaguars will add a hefty dose of excitement for fans of these top-tier teams.
A Celebration of Star Quarterbacks
This year’s schedule also celebrates the game’s star quarterbacks, with Patrick Mahomes, Josh Allen, Aaron Rodgers, Joe Burrow, Dak Prescott, Justin Herbert, Jalen Hurts, and Trevor Lawrence all appearing twice.
Lamar Jackson is set to play on Christmas night while 2023 first overall pick, Panthers QB Bryce Young, could make his primetime debut in Week 2.
An Enhanced Schedule for an Enhanced Viewing Experience
Key enhancements to the schedule include the introduction of flex scheduling from Week 12 onwards and the return of Monday Night Football with Peyton and Eli for its third season.
There will also be an ESPN+ exclusive International game in Week 4 between Atlanta Falcons and Jacksonville Jaguars.
Week 18 will see a doubleheader with playoff implications, culminating in a Super Wild Card Monday Night and a Divisional Playoff game added for the first time.
Expanded Coverage Across ESPN, ABC, and ESPN+
With 20 games airing on ESPN, 11 games broadcast on ABC, and 12 available on ESPN+, the upcoming NFL season offers fans an unmatched viewing experience. ESPN Deportes will provide Spanish-language telecasts for each game.
The People Behind the Magic
