The National Football League winds down the second week of its 2017 – ’18 season Monday night on ESPN with an NFC inter-divisional matchup.
The New York Giants (0 – 1 – 0) are scheduled to host the Detroit Lions (1 – 0 – 0) Monday night at Met Life Stadium in Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey as the NFL winds down the second week of its 2017 – ’18 season. The Giants sit third in the NFC East coming into Monday night’s matchup against Detroit, while the Lions currently sit second in the NFC North right behind the Minnesota Vikings, also 1 – 0 – 0 on the season.
Monday night’s game between the NFC inter-divisional foes will be the Giants’ first home game after the season. The team fell 19 – 3 to Dallas in Dallas in Week 1. Detroit meanwhile opened its season with a hard-fought 35 – 23 home win against Arizona.
The Giants’ season-opening road loss and the Tiger’s season-opening home win means that both teams will be playing equally hard for a win – the Tigers for their second straight win on the season and the G-Men for their first win of the season in front of a home crowd.
Sean McDonough will have the call for Monday night’s game. He will be joined in the booth by Jon Gruden for additional commentary. Lisa Salters will be on the sidelines with all of the game’s latest interviews and news.
Suzy Kolber will anchor ESPN’s weekly Monday night pre-game program Monday Night Countdown ahead of kickoff beginning at 6 p.m. She will be joined by analysts Matt Hasselbeck, Randy Moss, Charles Woodson and Steve Young for additional commentary.
Monday’s game will be simulcast in Spanish on ESPN Deportes with Alvaro Martin on the call. He will be joined by Raul Allegre and reporter John Sutcliffe for additional commentary.
