ESPN's 2011 "Monday Night Football" Schedule

All 12 Playoff Teams from 2010; Nine Divisional Matchups; Patriots-Dolphins MNF Opener on Sept. 12

The 42nd season of Monday Night Football will kick off on ESPN with a doubleheader Monday, September 12 - New England Patriots at Miami Dolphins (7 p.m. ET) and Oakland Raiders at Denver Broncos (10:15 p.m. / 8:15 p.m. MT) - and will continue with a total of 17 prime-time games. Following a successful season that delivered the 16 biggest cable household audiences of the year, ESPN's MNF schedule will feature all 12 playoff teams from 2010, including both the defending Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers and AFC champion Pittsburgh Steelers.

In the first game of the nationally televised ESPN week 1 doubleheader, wide receiver Brandon Marshall and the Dolphins will host divisional foe Tom Brady and the defending AFC East champion Patriots. The second game will pit Tim Tebow and the Broncos against the Raiders in Denver as the longtime AFC West rivals face one another for an NFL record 15th time under the Monday Night lights.

Play-by-play commentator Mike Tirico and analysts Jon Gruden and Ron Jaworski will call the Patriots-Dolphins opener, and the MNF games each week at 8:30 p.m. ESPN Deportes, ESPN's 24-hour Spanish-language domestic sports network, will continue to offer a Spanish-language production of MNF games during the 2011 NFL season. Additional MNF "game around the game" content will be available throughout the day across ESPN's multimedia platforms.
