I’ve been lax this season in posting Monday Night Football previews. Could be that I’m not receiving the NFL programming from ESPN like I have in the past.
Anyway on Monday, ESPN’s crew will in the Great Northwest for the Green Bay-Seattle game. Mike Tirico and Jon Gruden will have the call while Lisa Salters roams the sidelines.
It all begins with Monday Night Countdown at 6:30 p.m. ET. MNF follows at 8:30 p.m.
Here’s the ESPN preview.
NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers Face the Seattle Seahawks on ESPN’s Monday Night Football
NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers and the defending NFC North Champion Green Bay Packers face rookie quarterback Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks on ESPN’s Monday Night Football on September 24, at 8:30 p.m. ET. Announcer Mike Tirico and analyst Jon Gruden will call the game from CenturyLink Field with sideline reporter Lisa Salters.
In seven Packers-Seahawks matchups, the Seahawks have won just one game. Coincidentally, that win came on MNF six years ago – the last time these teams faced off under the MNF lights.
Leading into the MNF matchup, host Chris Berman and the Monday Night Countdown crew offer a two-hour pre-game show beginning at 6:30 p.m. Analysts Cris Carter, Mike Ditka, Tom Jackson and Keyshawn Johnson and NFL Insiders Chris Mortensen and Adam Schefter join Berman in studio, while on-site host Stuart Scott, analysts Trent Dilfer and Steve Young, contributor Rick Reilly and Salters add to the show. This will be a homecoming for Dilfer, who played for the Seahawks from 2001-04.
MNF is available on ESPN and ESPN Deportes, as well as on computers at WatchESPN.com and on tablets via the WatchESPN app for fans who receive their video subscription from an affiliated provider.
That will do it for the previews for now.
