Who Plays on Monday Night Football Tonight, November 21?
MATCHUP: San Francisco 49ers @ Arizona Cardinals
LOCATION: Estadio Azteca, Mexico City, Mexico
The Cardinals are trying their best to get some momentum going. They've alternated wins and losses all season and matters have not been helped by Kyler Murray getting banged up again. The 49ers, on the other hand, are winners of two straight as the defense rounds into form and Christian McCaffrey gets acclimated to the offense. The two playoff hopefuls will tell us all a lot about the quality of their rosters tonight.

How Many Primetime Games Do the 49ers Have This Year?
The 49ers have five primetime games this year, the maximum allowed by the NFL. They were presumably given ample television time to show off their new young quarterback, Trey Lance, but he went down for the year with leg injury in Week 2. As a result, Jimmy Garoppolo has been the man under center for every primetime game thus far. This is the fourth primetime matchup for San Francisco and the last will come in Week 15 against the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday Night Football.
How Many Primetime Games Do the Cardinals Have This Year?
The Cardinals have four primetime games this year as the magic that Kyler Murray and Kliff Kingsbury can produce is great television when it's working. Tonight's game will mark their second primetime matchup of the year, with another Monday Night Football game against the New England Patriots Patriots and a Christmas Day Sunday night game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers still to come.
Last Time the 49ers Won on Monday Night Football

49ers vs. Cardinals Matchup History
