ESPN has announced the schedule of preseason games that will air as part of its 2017 “Monday Night Football” schedule. The cable channel has two games on tap:
- Thursday, Aug. 17, 8 p.m.: Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Jacksonville Jaguars
- Monday, Aug. 21, 8 p.m.: New York Giants at Cleveland Browns
“Play-by-play commentator Sean McDonough (in his second season as the voice of MNF) will call the games with analyst Jon Gruden (ninth season) and reporter Lisa Salters (sixth season). Both MNF preseason games will begin at 8 p.m. ET and will be preceded by a one-hour preseason edition of ‘Monday Night Countdown,'” ESPN said in the announcement.
The announcement notes that ESPN Deportes, ESPN’s 24-hour Spanish-language domestic sports network, will again offer a Spanish-language production of “MNF” preseason and regular-season games in 2017. All games will also be available to stream live on tablets, computers and connected devices via WatchESPN and the ESPN app.
