MNF History: 1997
ABC Sports Online

Notes from the 1997 MNF season:

  • The Florida Marlins took the World Series to seven games, so the Dolphins and Bears met on a Monday night in Florida, giving MNF two games that week. On the same night, Green Bay and New England met in a rematch of Super Bowl XXXI.

  • MNF visited Jacksonville for the first time on Sept. 22. The following week, MNF headed to Carolina for the first Monday Night show for the Panthers.
