What does MNF stand for?

Monday Night Football

MNF is a popular acronym that refers to the Monday night live broadcast of NFL games. It features a matchup of two teams during prime time on ESPN.

MNF helped make the NFL more popular as it aired during the peak TV watching hours in the evening and to the whole U.S. instead of just the regions of the teams playing. It aired on ABC from 1970 to 2005 and then moved to ESPN where it airs today.
