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.
