ESPN To Feature AFC Showdown Monday Night

Brock Osweiller will face his former teammates Monday night on ESPN when the Broncos play host to the Texans on the network’s weekly NFL showcase Monday Night Football.

Monday night’s matchup between the AFC rivals will have equal importance for both teams. The Broncos come in to Monday night’s game in the heels of a tough 21 – 13 loss to San Diego while Houston will be looking to add another notch to its “W” column after last week’s 26 – 23 win over Indianapolis.

A win will be especially important for either team because of the teams’ current standings.  Houston currently leads the AFC South division, and another win for the Texans would pad the team’s lead over the Titans, who currently sit second in the division at 3 – 3.

The Broncos are currently tied with the Oakland Raiders atop the AFC West standings at 4 – 2. So a win for Denver would either give Denver the division lead or keep the teams tied depending on the outcome of Oakland’s matchup against Jacksonville on Sunday.  A loss by one or either team would be just as impacting.

Sean McDonough will have the call for Monday Night’s game live from Sports Authority Field at Mile High in Denver. He will be joined in the booth by his broadcast partner Jon Gruden for additional commentary.  Reporter Lisa Salters will be on the sidelines with all of the latest in-game news and interviews.

ESPN To Feature Its Own Battle Of Red Vs. Blue Friday In Postseason Impact Game

ESPN has added another matchup to its 2016 MLB postseason coverage schedule.

The Blue Jays and Red Sox will face off live this Friday on ESPN. The game, the first in the teams’ three-game weekend series, will be the network’s key MLB Postseason Impact Game telecast presented by Exxon and Mobil.  Broadcast of the game is expected to begin at 7:10pm ET.

Neither team has announced its rotation for the game or who will take the mound.  The weekend series will have extra meaning for Red Sox fans and for star David Ortiz.  That is because this weekend’s series is the last regular season series at Fenway Park for Ortiz.

Ortiz announced ahead of the 2016 season that this season would be his last before he hangs up his cleats and bat for good.  Ortiz will go out on a high note, though as the Red Sox have already clinched a spot in the postseason. So his final season will be extended at least a little bit longer.

Dan Shulman will have the call for Friday’s game.  He will be joined in the booth by analysts Aaron Boone and Jessica Mendoza for additional commentary.  The game will be blacked out in the Boston market.

Friday’s game is just the latest in ESPN’s 2016 MLB season broadcast schedule.  The Indians and Tigers will be live on ESPN and ESPN Deportes+ in a Wednesday double header schedule. The Rockies and Giants cap the night beginning at 10pm ET.  The Indians and Tigers will be live again on ESPN and ESPN Deportes+ at 1pm ET on Thursday.

The NFC South goes under the lights next week as the NFL finishes off Week 3 of the 2016 – ’17 season.

Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons host Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints next week on ESPN’s Monday Night Football.  Both teams are looking to right their respective ships as they prepare for Monday night’s matchup.

The Saints are winless heading into Week 3 while the Falcons have done anything but soar so far this season, going 1 – 1 with its only win so far coming in Week 2 against the Raiders.

Atlanta has scored 40 points against so far this season but also allowed 41 points to be scored against.  New Orleans meanwhile are close to that number, scoring 47 points so far but allowing 51 to be scored against.

Atlanta is winless at home so far this season while New Orleans is winless at home and on the road.  So Monday night’s game is going to be big for both teams in trying to get themselves on the right path.

Sean McDonough will have the call for Monday night’s NFC South matchup on ESPN.  He will be joined in the booth by Jon Gruden for additional commentary.  Reporter Lisa Salters will be on the sidelines with all of the latest in-game interviews and news.  Coverage kicks off at 8:15pm ET.

Monday Night Countdown will precede Monday Night Football with Suzy Kolber at the helm.  She will be joined at the desk by the analyst team of Matt Hasselbeck, Trent Dilfer, Randy Moss, Charles Woodson and Steve Young.  NFL features reporter Michelle Beisner-Buck will also be on hand for additional commentary.

Chris Berman, Michael Irvin and ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter will be live from ESPN’s studios in Bristol Connecticut.
