After a thrilling conclusion to the opening Monday Night Football doubleheader last week we are looking forward for the Week 2 MNF matchup between the Indianapolis Colts will play host in their home opener to the Philadelphia Eagles.
No other night is Monday Night!!

I will have to admit that I have never been a huge fan of Monday Night Football since Al Michaels and John Madden left for Sunday nights. The lack of depth in Jon Gruden’s insights is a joke. Ron Jaworski wasn’t much better. Mike Tirico has never lived up to Jim Brown’s bar.

My Season Long 2014 NFL Monday Night Football Picks
Week 2, Sept. 15
Philadelphia Eagles at Indianapolis Colts
I sense a high-scoring shootout just waiting to happen as Andrew Luck and Nick Foles lead the Colts and Eagles respectively. How does 41-38 sound? Too low?
Week 3, Sept. 22
Chicago Bears at New York Jets
There will likely be more trash-talking than actual playing thanks to cry-baby Bears quarterback Jay Cutler and loud-mouthed Jets head coach Rex Ryan.
Week 4, Sept. 29
New England Patriots at Kansas City Chiefs
Tom Brady and company will try to get the road win in one of the toughest stadiums in the league to play in. Still, I suspect the Pats will get the win here over a Chiefs team that I’ve lost some faith in at this point.
Week 5, Oct. 6
Seattle Seahawks at Washington Redskins
Who thinks this game will be over by halftime?
Who thinks RG3 is in the same class of quarterbacks as Russell Wilson?
I know I don’t.
Week 6, Oct. 13
San Francisco 49ers at St. Louis Rams
Didn’t I just write a bout a game being over with by halftime?
Does anyone feel bad for the foolish St. Louis Rams who failed to nab a quarterback, any quarterback, after seeing Sam Bradford go down with a season-ending ACL injury last season?
Week 7, Oct. 20
Houston Texans at Pittsburgh Steelers
I really like Texans head coach Bill O’Brien, but I just don’t see the Texans marching into Pittsburgh to win this contest.
Week 8, Oct. 27
Washington Redskins at Dallas Cowboys
I’m thinking this perennial NFC East battle should now be called the ‘Ho-Hum Bowl’.
Week 9, Nov. 3
Indianapolis Colts at New York Giants
I really like Giants veteran quarterback Eli Manning, but I’ve got to admit that, these days, he looks like he could use a good schooling on how to play the position from Colts young gun Andrew Luck.
Week 10, Nov. 10
Carolina Panthers at Philadelphia Eagles
Speaking of quarterbacks that need a bit of a lesson on how to throw the ball…I’m going on record right now to say that Philly’s Nick Foles has now surpassed Carolina’s cam Newton in the race to become an elite signal-caller.
Week 11, Nov. 17
Pittsburgh Steelers at Tennessee Titans
Could Tennessee head coach Ken Whisenhunt get some revenge on his former franchise for not giving him the head coaching job that went to Mike Tomlin a few years back?
I think so!
Week 12, Nov. 24
Baltimore Ravens at New Orleans Saints
At this point, I’m wondering if the Baltimore Ravens will still have a reason to play hard in this Week 12 matchup, though I suspect motivation won’t be a problem for Drew Brees and company.
Week 13, Dec. 1
Miami Dolphins at New York Jets
I’ve got a funny feeling that Miami could challenge New England for division supremacy in 2014 and winning this game on the road against the Jets could go a long way toward accomplishing a feat that once seemed unlikely at the very least.
Week 14, Dec. 8
Atlanta Falcons at Green Bay Packers
I’m sensing a high-scoring affair waiting to happen as Matt Ryan and the Falcons air it out against Aaron Rodgers and the Packers. Well…as much as a quarterback can air it out late in the season in what will almost assuredly be a frozen tundra in Green Bay.
Week 15, Dec. 15
New Orleans Saints at Chicago Bears
Outside of the weather likely helping Chicago, there’s no way I’d ever pick a Jay Cutler team to best a Drew Brees led squad.
Week 16, Dec. 22
Denver Broncos at Cincinnati Bengals
Call me crazy, but I like the Cincinnati Bengals to win this game and possibly beat Denver out for a berth in the AFC title game – if they don’t square off against each other that is.
