Have a case of the Mondays, NFL fans? Don’t worry, the league provides the perfect cure to close out Week 2! We’ll have two games to watch on Monday Night Football. Doesn’t that make you feel better?

We’ve got some really interesting matchups going into this doubleheader, too. The Tennessee Titans and Buffalo Bills square off first, followed by a clash between the Minnesota Vikings and Philadelphia Eagles.

Here’s everything you need to know in order to watch both Monday Night Football games this week.

Game 1: Tennessee Titans (0-1) vs. Buffalo Bills (1-0)

The Titans are looking to respond in a big way after dropping a heartbreaking home game to the New York Giants on opening weekend, falling 21-20. Mike Vrabel’s team could make a huge statement with a road win over Buffalo.

Speaking of statements, the Bills sent a message across the league last Thursday in Los Angeles. Buffalo’s offense, led by Josh Allen, pummeled the Rams in a 31-10 decision, proving to the NFL they’re Super Bowl contenders.

This is a great matchup to start a Monday Night Football doubleheader.

Game 2: Minnesota Vikings (1-0) vs. Philadelphia Eagles (1-0)
