The NFL expects a ratings explosion in Week 11 on Monday Night Football.

One of the most anticipated games of the NFL regular season is on. Perhaps you have heard. The Philadelphia Eagles battle the Kansas City Chiefs in primetime on Monday Night Football. This is one that everyone has circled. Every network would have loved to have carried the game. ESPN and ABC will bring us the festivities.

Some call this a Super Bowl rematch. Others disagree. Regardless of which side of that argument you are sitting on, Disney's network of channels, particularly ESPN and ABC will be laughing all the way to the bank.

Here are three of about ten reasons why that's the case.

Many of the other Monday Night Football lineups don't pack the same punch of Eagles vs. Chiefs.

ESPN finally has the announcing team they want, Troy Aikman and Joe Buck, but they have had to call some pretty awful games this year. The New York Jets and Las Vegas Raiders have both been in the national spotlight twice on Monday Night Football. What did we do to deserve this type of punishment?

Now, this won't be the Eagles' first MNF game this year. They brought the fireworks in a 25-11 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 3. This should be a more entertaining watch though.

Kansas City has been featured in both the Sunday night and Thursday night windows, but this is their 2023 Monday Night Football debut.

This game couldn't have fallen in a better place on the schedule. Both teams are coming off of byes. There should be more pep in every player's step as this one is the final game of the Week 11 slate.
