Who plays on 'Monday Night Football' tonight? Time, TV channel, schedule for Week 4 | Sporting News

Somebody will get their first win of the year on Week 4 of “Monday Night Football,” as the Bengals visit the Steelers in a battle of 0-3 teams that has the potential to be a high-scoring affair.

Pittsburgh began the season by laying an egg in primetime against the Patriots, and tight losses to the Seahawks and 49ers have kept the year from getting off the ground to this point. The offense has taken steps forward from the 33-3 dud against New England, but the defense is yet to hold a team below 24 points.

The Bengals have struggled under first-year head coach Zac Taylor, a Sean McVay protege who’s overseen an improvement on offense but hasn’t yet figured out the defense. Cincinnati has allowed more than 400 yards per game through the first three weeks.

One of the three teams allowing more yards this year are the Steelers, however, so stops may be at a premium Monday night. Regardless of style points, whichever team can earn its first win will get a boost in a division with no teams above .500.

Below is everything you need to know about the NFL’s Week 4 “Monday Night Football” game, including the kickoff time, TV channel and more.
