The Colts and Jets go under the lights Monday in an AFC inter-divisional matchup live on ESPN.
ESPN’s Week 13 Monday Night Football broadcast will air live from New York. It will be a pivotal game for both teams. The Jets (3 – 8) currently sit last in the AFC East while the Colts (5 – 6) are third in the AFC South, just ahead of Jacksonville (2 – 9).
The game is equally important for both teams. That’s not just because of the teams’ standings. Each team comes into the game looking to bounce back from its own loss in Week 12. Indianapolis was thumped by Pittsburgh last week 28 – 7 while New York fell 22 – 17 to New England.
The outcome for Monday night’s showdown is completely up in the air. The host Jets are 1 – 4 at home so far this season versus a 2 – 4 road record. On the other side, the Colts are 2 – 3 on the road and 3 – 3 at home.
Looking even deeper at the numbers, Indianapolis has scored more points for this season (270) than New York (196). At the same time, the Jets’ defense has held its opponents to 266 points so far this season. The Colts’ defense meanwhile has allowed 301 points against so far this season. It’s more proof the game is either team’s to lose and to win.
Broadcast of Monday’s game is scheduled to begin at 8:15 p.m. EST. Sean McDonough will have the call. He will be joined by his broadcast partner Jon Gruden for additional commentary. Reporter Lisa Salters will also be on hand for all of the latest in-game news and interviews.
Monday Night Countdown will precede Monday Night Football beginning at 6 p.m. EST. Suzy Kolber will anchor the broadcast live from MetLife Stadium. She will be joined by analysts Trent Dilfer, Matt Hasselbeck, Randy Moss, Charles Woodson and Steve Young. Chris Berman will co-anchor live from ESPN’s studios in Bristol, CT. He will be joined by ESPN Insider Adam Schefter. NFL Features Editor Michelle Beisner-Buck and the MNF broadcast team will also add their own insight to the broadcast.
