With Christmas Eve taking place on a Monday this year, it's thrown the entire NFL schedule for a loop. Well, actually it's just thrown Monday Night Football for a loop as its final game of the season will air Saturday night instead of Monday (there is no MNF game in Week 17). The switch isn't easy for anyone to remember - even the ESPN graphics department still thinks Falcons/Lions is on Monday. The interesting thing about all of this though is that the pregame show still appears as "Monday Night Countdown" on my program guide despite the game being aired on Saturday. Makes total sense, right?
