Which team has the best winning percentage on Monday Night Football?

This NFL Team Does Like Mondays

Last week, we pointed out that the Falcons had the NFL's worst winning percentage on Monday Night Football, and they went out and beat the Denver Broncos.

This week, we pass along the fact that the Seattle Seahawks, who host the Green Bay Packers this week, have the league's best winning percentage on Monday Night Football. (What you do with that morsel of useless information is your business.)

The NFL's best on MNF:

 Team  W    L     T  Pct.
 Seahawks    17     8     0   .680 
 Colts  21  12    0  .656
 Steelers  39  23    0  .629
 49ers  41  25    0  .621
 Chiefs  22  15    0  .595
 Cowboys  43  30    0  .589
 Raiders  37  26    1  .586

About this blog

Boop – who goes by Bob Vetrone Jr. when he is undercover or paying bills – has been at the Daily News since 1982, after working for five years at the Philadelphia Bulletin up to its closing. Along with helping to build the sports scoreboards most nights, he has had great input into the papers’ special sports pullouts – March Madness, Broad Street Run, Record Breakers, Greatest Moments – as well as its day-to-day, award-winning event coverage.

A 1980 graduate of North Catholic, he took some evening college courses. Those lasted right up until the first conflict with a Big 5 doubleheader.

His favorite books growing up were the NBA Guide and the Baseball Encyclopedia, which was, for all intents and purposes, the Internet before there was an Internet.

He has been immersed in sports statistics since the early 70s, when his father (long-time sports writer, broadcaster and the Daily News’ Buck The Bartender), would take him into the Bulletin newsroom overnight in the summer and let him update the Phillies statistics in a little, black spiral notebook. But things have changed tremendously in the decades since … He now uses a big, black spiral notebook.
