Game time, channel, how to watch and stream ‘Monday Night Football’

The Eagles meet the Minnesota Vikings in their home opener at Lincoln Financial Field Football on Monday night Show that will look and feel a little different.

For starters, tonight’s game will air at 8:30 p.m. Eastern on ABC and not ESPN, which will instead air Tennessee Titans-Buffalo Bills in an overlapping doubleheader. As a result, there will be plenty of cuts and updates between the two shows, something ESPN is experimenting with in part because the network will have three such doubleheads next season.

In the booth it will be new Football on Monday night announcers Joe Buck and Troy Aikman calling their first Eagles game since last season’s playoff loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The duo received rave reviews for their Week 1 debut and delivered something ESPN lacked Football on Monday night for some time – a great game feel.

ESPN executives “have long been frustrated” by the perception that the Football on Monday night Broadcast was “less than other rights holders,” wrote The Athletic’s Richard Deitsch, adding that the new booth featuring Buck and Aikman “sounded big, which ESPN wants.”

Joining Buck and Aikman is longtime sideline reporter and native King of Prussia Lisa Salters, who grew up with the Eagles but had a soft spot for at least one Dallas Cowboys Hall of Famer.

“I remember rooting for my cousin Tony Dorsett and the Cowboys while my dad — sorry, Troy — rooted for the Cowboys because we’re from Philadelphia and we’re an Eagles family,” Salters said in a recent Telephone conference. “But we’re still secretly cheering for the cowboys because of Tony.”

“I just learned something, Lisa. Didn’t know you were cousins ​​of TD Tony Dorsett,” Aikman replied. “That’s pretty awesome.”

Peyton and Eli Manning are back hosting ESPN’s “Manningcast” this season, but Eagles fans won’t be hearing from them tonight.

With multiple networks and productions involved in tonight’s overlapping doubleheader, ESPN decided to give Peyton and Eli the week off to limit viewer confusion and maximize resources, network sources said.

The Manning brothers will be back on ESPN2 in Week 3 with their alternative Monday Night Football show to announce an NFC East matchup between the Dallas Cowboys and the undefeated New York Giants. Here’s the remaining Manningcast schedule for this season on ESPN2.

Former Washington quarterback Robert Griffin III is the latest former player to travel down the field-to-TV tunnel.

Griffin, who has yet to officially retire from the NFL and just a few months ago said he was open to a return, joined ESPN in August 2021 as a college football analyst. This year, the 32-year-old is part of the NFL network Monday night countdown Pregame show alongside Hall of Famer Steve Young, Booger McFarland and Upper Dublin High graduate Suzy Kolber.

Due to the doubleheader tonight, the planning is a bit strange. Monday night countdown will air on ESPN at 5:00 p.m. before the Titans Bills kickoff. The crew returns at 8 p.m. to host a second, 30-minute version of the pregame show on ABC

Both teams are 1-0, but only one remains undefeated afterwards. According to oddsmakers, the Eagles are a 2.5-point favorite (on FanDuel), and our roundup of predictions backs up the view held by many pundits – this Football on Monday night Matchup will be a pick-em.

While forecasters are divided on who will win – with a slight advantage for the Birds – the one common theme is that there will be plenty of points at the Linc, which is good for national fans but likely to cause a bit of panic among those Eagles fans after watching their team drop 35 points to the Lions in the opening game.

This poor performance in Week 1, combined with the success of their offensive in Detroit, is probably why most books have the overall score in this book north of 50, with FanDuel and a few others marking it at 50.5 points

Despite a late finish for the Eagles tonight, both NBC Sports Philadelphia and Jakib Sports will offer Birds-focused post-game coverage that will last into the early hours of Tuesday morning.

NBC Sports Philadelphia airs Eagles Aftermath Livewith longtime host Michael Barkann, reporter Reuben Frank and two former Eagles – Ron Jaworski and Barrett Brooks.

Jakib Sports, which streams on YouTube and 6abc.com, features former 97.5 The Fanatic host Mike Missanelli, along with former NBC Sports Philadelphia reporter, former Eagles and New York Giants linebacker Seth Joyner, and the 94.1 WIP presenter Devan Kaney.
