Start time, how to watch and stream ‘Monday Night Football’

Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts will make his Monday Night Football debut tonight on ESPN, when the Birds take on the Dallas Cowboys under the lights at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

In the booth will be play-by-play announcer Steve Levy, whom most sports fans probably know from his years as a SportsCenter anchor (and his famed “bulging disc” blooper from 1995). Alongside Levy in ESPN’s three-person booth will be former Eagles executive and scout Louis Riddick and former NFL quarterback Brian Griese. Reporting from the sidelines will be King of Prussia native Lisa Salters.

Last year, the ESPN crew called the Eagles’ Week 12 loss to the Seattle Seahawks, which featured Carson Wentz’s last touchdown pass as a member of the Birds. This time around they’ll get Hurts, who has impressed Griese despite the fact he’ll only be making his seventh NFL start.

Back in January, 247Sports recruiting analyst Brandon Jenkins went so far as to draw a pro comparison between Holmgren and Laker megastar Anthony Davis. Between his length, blocking ability and versatility, he can do a lot more than the average center.

As for where Chet Holmgren expected to go, Gonzaga seems like the frontrunner

The Monday After: The Big Ten needs to put Ohio State in its conference title game for its own good

Ohio State is a playoff team. It has been the entire season, even if an entire season in the Big Ten hasn’t felt like an entire season. While many people needed to see Ohio State smother Michigan State without several key starters and coaches to be convinced, I’ve felt this way for a while.

I don’t need to see Ohio State play a minimum of five games before I can decide if it’s better than other College Football Playoff contenders.

I’ve also been convinced that while plenty have debated about how many games the Buckeyes need to play this season to be selected for the playoff, that it’s never been a legitimate problem. As long as Ohio State didn’t have its season shut down by COVID-19, I’ve felt it will be one of the four teams chosen so long as it doesn’t lose one of the games it does play.
