NFL fans were confused by Saturday's games promoted as 'Monday Night Football' on ESPN – For The Win

You’re not alone if you were tricked into thinking today is Monday.
We’re nearing the start of the NFL playoffs, which means the league is doing a bit of schedule moving to make things more interesting. With no college football to play against this weekend, the NFL bumped both the Denver Broncos vs. Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles vs. Dallas Cowboys games to Saturday on ESPN and ABC.
A bit confusing, but all fine and good. However, NFL fans were left puzzled as all the branding on both games was for “Monday Night Football” when it is distinctly… not Monday night.
Yeah, as someone who never knows the day of the week, this is too much for me.
There is a reason for it, however! Chris Fowler and Kirk Herbstreit called the early game while the usual “Monday Night Football” crew of Steve Levy, Brian Griese, and Louis Riddick called the late game, meaning ESPN kept the iconic MNF branding after the shift to Saturday in what is likely a rights and branding agreement.
With no real reason given on the broadcast, however, NFL fans were left mystified and a bit annoyed at this confusing development.
