Next Monday night on ESPN, the Dolphins and Giants round out Week 14 in the NFL in a game with potential playoff implications for both teams.
Miami and New York will face off under the lights next Monday night on ESPN’s Monday Night Football in a game with potential playoff implications for both teams. That is because as of right now, both teams are at least in the hunt for playoff spots. If the season were to end this week, Miami would be the 11th seed in the AFC while the “G-Men” would be the 10th seed in the NFC. Counting this coming weekend, there are still four weeks left in the regular season. So there is still plenty of time for things to change in both conferences. That means that while odds are still very slim for either team right now, there’s still no telling what the playoff picture will look like come January 9th and 10th.
Currently, the Giants are in a three-way tie with the Redskins and Eagles for the NFC East crown with all three teams sitting at the 5 – 7 mark. Meanwhile Miami, which also sits at 5 – 7, is in the basement in the AFC East. The Dolphins play host to the Giants next Monday night on Monday Night Football. They are 2 – 3 at home so far this season. New York isn’t much better, sitting at 2 – 4 so far this season on the road. What’s more New York is currently in the midst of a three-game losing streak which has seen the Giants go 1 – 4 in their last five games. Miami meanwhile has gone 2 – 3 in its last five games with its last win coming last week against Baltimore 15 – 13. Kickoff for Monday’s game is scheduled for 8:15pm ET. Mike Tirico and Jon Gruden will be in the booth for the call Monday night. Lisa Salters will be on hand for additional commentary and all of the latest headlines throughout the game. Along with its broadcast on ESPN, the game will also be simulcast online via WatchESPN and via ESPN Deportes for the network’s Spanish-speaking audiences.
Ahead of Monday night’s broadcast, Chris Berman and Suzy Kolber will co-host ESPN’s weekly NFL pre-game show Monday Night Countdown. Berman will be live from ESPN’s studios alongside Mike Ditka, Tom Jackson, Keyshawn Johnson, and Cris Carter. Also joining them will be ESPN Insiders Chris Mortensen and Adam Schefter with a look back at all of Sunday’s games and a look ahead to Monday night’s inter-conference match-up. Suzy Kolber will be live on site from Sun Life Stadium alongside Steve Young, Ray Lewis, and Trent Dilfer.
