The Bears and Eagles face off in week 2 of the NFL’s 2016 – ’17 regular season Monday night on ESPN.

The Bears currently sit last in the NFC North while the Eagles are flying high in the NFC East, vying for the top spot in the division.  The Eagles sit second in the division to the now 2 – 0 New York Giants.

Coverage of Monday night’s game is expected to begin at 8:15pm ET.  Sean McDonough will have the call in Monday night’s game.  He will be joined in the booth by Jon Gruden for additional commentary.  Lisa Salters will also be on hand for all of the latest in-game news and interviews.

Monday Night Countdown will precede Monday’s NFC interdivisional matchup with Suzy Kolber at the helm.  Coverage begins at 6pm ET.  She will be joined at the desk live on site in Chicago by analysts Trent Dilfer, Matt Hasselbeck, Randy Moss, Charles Woodson, and Steve Young.  Chris Berman and Adam Schefter will join Kolber and company live from ESPN’s studios in Bristol, CT.

Michelle Beisner-Buck will present her weekly feature for the Monday Night Countdown live from Chicago as part of the night’s broadcast.

Monday Night Football is simulcast live in Spanish on ESPN Deportes for ESPN’s Spanish-speaking audiences and online via WatchESPN for anyone that won’t be near a television during the game’s broadcast.
