Why are there two games on Monday night in Week 14?

There's no specific reason for exactly why there will be two games on Monday night in Week 14. ESPN, in a press release, said that the schedule change is an opportunity to "transform a Sunday afternoon environment into a primetime window."

How many Monday Night Football doubleheaders are there in 2023?

Week 14 will be the third and final MNF doubleheader of the 2023 season.

In the past, MNF doubleheaders were reserved for Week 1. That all changed last season, when ESPN moved the doubleheader to Week 2. This season, the schedule was expanded to three separate nights -- Weeks 2, 3 and 14. The start times of the two games were staggered for Weeks 2 and 3, but the Week 14 games will kick off at the same time.
