    When you think about it, it could be because there is no other game scheduled on Monday. But that's only my guess.

    Schedules are finalized in about March by the NFL (not ESPN). Teams sell tickets beginning in about April. Games can't be "flexed" in December to have a "better game" on Monday night.

    This is the last game at Candlestick Park. If the game is really boring, more time will be spent reviewing the history of "The 'Stick".

    They don't/can't flex the Monday night game. Only the Sunday games can be flexed to the Sunday night game.
