Week Six of the NFL’s 2015 regular season closes out next Monday with a battle of first versus worst as the Eagles host the Giants in an NFC East divisional match-up live on ESPN.
Next week’s edition of ESPN’s Monday Night Football will feature an NFC East showdown as the division-leading Giants travel to Philadelphia to take on the Eagles, who sit in the basement in that division. The Giants come into Monday night’s game 3 – 2 so far on the season, riding the high of a three-game streak while the Eagles, who are currently 2 – 3 so far on the season, will be looking to just get back to .500. Philadelphia’s last win was in Week Five against the Saints 39 – 17. The Eagles outplayed the Saints from start to finish, holding New Orleans to just two touchdowns and a fieldgoal over the course of four quarters. The Eagles have scroed only 117 points so far this season and have given up 100 along the way while the G-Men have picked up 132 points total and allowed only 109 against. That is a difference of fifteen points scored between the two teams and only nine allowed between them. And looking at both teams’ play over four quarters week-to-week, it looks like Monday night’s matchup is sure to be a big one for both teams despite starkly different records so far this season.
Mike Tirico and Jon Gruden will be in the booth for Monday night’s game and Lisa Salters will be on hand, too for additional commentary and reports. Kickoff is scheduled for 8:15pm ET. Ahead of Monday Night’s game ESPN will present its weekly broadcast of Monday Night Countdown, co-hosted by Suzy Kolber and Chris Berman. Kolber will be live on site alongside Trent Dilfer, Ray Lewis, and Steve Young while Berman will be live in ESPN’s studios alongside NFL analysts Cris Carter, Mike Ditka, Tom Jackson, and Keyshawn Johnson. Monday Night Countdown begins at 6pm ET. Those that won’t be near a television Monday night can still catch the game online via WatchESPN. The game will also be simulcast on television via ESPN Deportes for the network’s Spanish-speaking audiences.
