The Eagles and Redskins close out week 7 in the NFL live Monday night on ESPN.

The NFC East divisional foes will play live on ESPN’s Monday Night Football in the final game of the week in what will be a crucial game for both teams.  The Eagles (5 – 1) currently sit atop the NFC East and the NFC standings while the Redskins (3 – 2) sit second in the division. Washington is also in a close battle for sixth place in the conference alongside Seattle, New Orleans and Atlanta.

All four teams play this week, meaning each game is pivotal for each team as the season nears its halfway point.  The host Eagles are undefeated at home so far this season going 2 – 0 so far at home, while the Redskins are winless on the road at 0 – 1 on that record.  Considering each team’s overall records, Monday’s matchup will be pivotal for each organization for a number of reasons.

Coverage of Monday’s game starts at 6 p.m. with Monday Night Countdown, hosted by Suzy Kolber.  Kolber will be joined, as she is each week, by ESPN NFL analysts Matt Hasselbeck, Randy Moss, Charles Woodson and Steve Young.  ESPN NFL Insiders Chris Mortensen Louis Riddick and Adam Schefter will also be on hand along with ESPN senior fantasy sports analyst Matthew Berry and the Monday Night Football broadcast crew of Sean McDonough, Jon Gruden and Lisa Salters.

McDonough and Gruden will have the call for Monday’s game beginning at 8:15 p.m. live from Lincoln Financial Field.  Salters will be on the sidelines with all of the latest in-game news and interviews.

Kansas City, Washington Round Out Week 4 In The NFL Live On ESPN

ESPN will present a battle of East versus West in next week’s edition of Monday Night Football.

The Kansas City Chiefs (AFC West) will host the Washington Redskins Oct. 2 in Kansas City live on ESPN to round out Week 4 of the NFL’s 2017 – ’18 season.  Monday’s coverage begins at 6 p.m. with Monday Night Countdown hosted by Suzy Kolber. The network’s weekly pre-game broadcast will air live from Arrowhead Stadium.

Kolber will be joined by NFL analysts Matt Hasselbeck, Randy Moss, Charles Woodson and Steven Young for additional commentary.  ESPN NFL Insiders Chris Mortensen, Louis Riddick and Adam Schefter will also join the broadcast from ESPN’s headquarters along with ESPN Senior Fantasy Sports Analyst Matthew Berry.

Live coverage of Monday night’s cross-conference game is currently scheduled to start at 8:15 p.m. with Sean McDonough and Jon Gruden on the call.  Lisa Salters will be on the sidelines with all of the latest in-game news and interviews.

Monday night’s matchup will be simulcast in Spanish on television on ESPN Deportes and ESPN2 with Alvaro Martin, Raul Allegre and John Sutcliffe handling broadcast duties there.  The game will also be available streaming via the ESPN app.

While the Chiefs and Redskins are in different conferences, Monday’s game will have the same importance for each team.  The AFC West-leading Chiefs (3 – 0) are 1 – 0 at home so far this season while the Redskins (2 – 1 ), who are in a close battle with Philadelphia and Dallas for the top spot in the NFC East, are also 1 – 0 on the road.

Both teams added another notch to their “W” columns in Week 3 with Kansas City defeating San Diego 24 – 10 and Washington defeating the Raiders 27 – 10.  A win for the Chiefs could potentially widen their lead in the AFC West depending on the outcome of the other games in the division this weekend.  Another win for Washington could have equally big implications in the NFC East – again depending on the division’s other games.

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.

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.

ESPN Adds Chip Kelly To Its College Football Broadcast Roster

Courtesy: ESPN

ESPN has added a new big name to its college football coverage roster.

Chip Kelly was named the latest addition this week to the network’s roster of college football analysts.  Kelly, who has more than 30 years experience in college and professional football, will serve as a studio analyst for many of the network’s college football broadcasts. According to a press release from ESPN, Kelly will also appear on Friday and Sunday editions of SportsCenter to offer insight on college and NFL matchups.

Lee Fitting, ESPN Senior Coordinating Producer, called Kelly’s outside the box approach as a coach one of his major strong points while discussing his addition to the network’s on-air football roster.

“Chip is one of the most innovative football minds of our generation,” Fitting said.  “As a coach, he saw the game from a unique perspective, never afraid to take an unconventional approach.  We want him to bring that mentality to our college football coverage each week, offering fans a varying viewpoint outside of the conventional thought process.”

Kelly said in response, he intended to use that unconventional approach when he begins his time with the network, adding he is anticipating starting the next chapter of his football career with ESPN.

“Over the last 30 years, I have experienced football from one perspective – as a coach,” Kelly said.  “Working in television will allow me to see the game from a different angle; simultaneously;  I’ll provide viewers an insight to the mindset of a coach and team while offering alternative views of various situations.  Once I decided to make the move to television, my familiarity with ESPN, combined with their high-quality productions and vital role in college football, it was easily the best network suited for me.”

From 2009 – 12, Kelly served as head coach of the University of Oregon’s football team, compiling a record of 46 – 7.  That record included wins in the Rose Bowl and Fiesta Bowl, and a trip to the College Football National Championship.  In 2009 and ’10, he led the Ducks to the Pac-10 title.  He also led the team to the Pac-12 title.

His time at the helm in Oregon is only one part a 24-year college football career.  Before taking the helm at Oregon, he also spent two years as the team’s offensive coordinator. He spent the past four seasons in the National Football League, including a stint at the helm of the Philadelphia Eagles.

While leading the Eagles, Kelly led the team to a 10 – 6 record and led the team to the NFC East title.

Kelly’s own accolades include Pac-10 Coach of the year in 2009.  He earned four separate coach of the year awards in 2010 including the Associated Press Coach of the Year award.

Kelly will start his on-air college football career with ESPN with the start of this year’s college football season.

Carolina, Washington Close NFL’s Week 15 Schedule Live On ESPN

Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers go under the lights live Monday night on ESPN when they take on the Washington Redskins on Monday Night Football.

Last season’s runners-up in the Super Bowl, the Panthers have struggled to repeat last season’s success this season. Carolina sits last in the NFC South at 5 – 8 so far on the season. The “Cardiac Cats” are 4 – 5 in their conference, 1 – 3 in non-conference play, and 2 – 3 in their last five games.  Their last win came last week as they defeated the San Diego Chargers 28 – 16.

A win by the Panthers Monday night coupled with a loss by the New Orleans Saints on Sunday would potentially pull the Panthers out of the NFC South basement.  That’s because both teams sit at 5 – 8 on the season.

The Panthers’ playoff hopes are slim to nil win or lose Monday night.  On the other hand, Monday night’s game has even more importance for Washington, which sits 3rd in the NFC East at 7 – 5 – 1 so far on the season with its only tie coming earlier in the season against Cincinnati.

Washington’s NFC East opponents, the Dallas Cowboys, have already punched their ticket to the postseason.  Washington comes into Monday night’s game on the heels of a 27 – 22 win over Philadelphia in Week 14.  Washington has also proven better at home on the road this season than on the road, going 4 – 2 at home and 3 – 3 – 1 on the road.

Monday’s NFC Inter-Divisional matchup can go either way.  The Panthers have nothing to lose while Washington has much more to lose.  So each team will be giving its all once the lights go on and the cameras go live.

Sean McDonough will have the call for Monday’s matchup beginning at 8:15 p.m.  He will be joined in the booth by Jon Gruden for additional commentary.  Reporter Lisa Salters will be on the sidelines 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.  She will be joined at the desk by analysts Trent Dilfer, Matt Hasselbeck, Randy Moss, Charles Woodson and Steve Young.

NFL features reporter Michelle Beisner-Buck, ESPN Insider Adam Schefter and the MNF broadcast team will also join the broadcast for additional commentary.  Chris Berman and special guest (and with former ESPN NFL analyst) Tom Jackson will offer additional insight and commentary during the broadcast, too.  Jackson’s appearance is part of Berman’s NFL Legends initiative.

Monday’s game will be simulcast in Spanish on ESPN Deportes for the network’s Spanish-speaking audiences.  It will also stream live online on WatchESPN and the ESPN app.

Bengals, Giants Wrap Week 10 In The NFL Monday Night On ESPN

Courtesy: ESPN

ESPN will feature a cross-conference matchup Monday night when the Bengals and Giants go under the lights live on Monday Night Football.

Monday’s matchup between Cincinnati and New York will be equally important for both teams.  The Giants (5 – 3 – 0) currently sit second in the NFC East, second only to Dallas.  The team is riding the success of a 3-game win streak coming into Monday night.

Meanwhile, Cincinnati (3 – 4 – 1) has struggled this season in the AFC North.  The team current sits third in the division behind Baltimore and Pittsburgh, who both sit at 4 – 4 on the season so far.

Two weeks ago, Cincinnati’s game against the Washington Redskins in London ended in a 27 all tie after kicker Mike Nugent missed a kick that could have given the Bengals the win.  Nugent since took full responsibility for the missed kick.

Cincinnati had a bye week last week, so it has had time to lick its wounds and figure out how to rebound from that disappointing finish.

Kickoff for Monday’s broadcast, live from New York, is scheduled for 8:15 pm EST.  Sean McDonough will have the call for Monday’s broadcast.  He will be joined in the booth by his broadcast partner Jon Gruden for additional commentary.  Reporter Lisa Salters will be on the sidelines for all of the game’s latest news and interviews.

Monday Night Countdown will precede Monday’s live broadcast between the Bengals and Giants beginning at 6 p.m. EST.  Suzy Kolber will anchor the broadcast.  She will be joined live at the desk by analysts Trent Dilfer, Matt Hasselbeck, Randy Moss, Charles Woodson and Steve Young for additional commentary.

Chris Berman will join the broadcast live from ESPN’s studios in Bristol, CT along with NFL features reporter Michelle Beisner-Buck, ESPN Insider Adam Schefter and guest analyst (and Pro Football Hall of Famer) Warren Moon for the broadcast, too.
