Cowboys vs Eagles announcers: Why the Monday Night Football team are calling the ESPN game Saturday


The NFL rose two games Sunday through Saturday as part of the week-long 18 regular season finale. ESPN got both games and airs them simultaneously on ABC. The Chiefs-Broncos’ opener gave viewers a treat with Chris Fowler and Kirk Herbstreit calling the game from the booth, Laura Rutledge as the sideline reporter and John Parry as the rules expert.

The doubles program ends with a kick-off at 8:15 p.m. in Philadelphia between the Cowboys and the Eagles. This game will feature the Monday night football crew – Steve Levy, Brian Griese, Louis Riddick and Lisa Salters – on call. Parry will also play a dual role as the Rules Expert for this game.

There’s no Monday night football in the last week of the regular season, but this year the playoffs will bring a little more. With the extension of the playoffs to 14 teams, the league has chosen to move one of the six games in the Wild Card round from Saturday to Sunday. ESPN will get Monday’s game and have Fowler and Herbstreit on that call. They will likely have another game with the MNF team on call. Monday’s game will be the same as Peyton Manning and Eli manning broadcast another ManningCast for the season. It is not known which game will be assigned this slot.
