The 2013 NFL Monday Night Football week 1 kickoff features two games, just has it has in previous seasons. Tonight, it will be the Philadelphia Eagles heading to down I-95 to face the Washington Redskins in the first game at 6:55pm EST. Then, the San Diego Chargers host the Houston Texans in the second game at 10:20pm… or whenever the first game ends. Both games are being broadcast by ESPN via television broadcast and free NFL streaming, live online.
In the first MNF offering, there are plenty of question out there that will make this game entertaining to watch ranging from “Is RG3 ready?” to “What the hell is this newfangled Chip Kelly offense all about?” ESPN’s standard Monday Night team of Jon Gruden and Mike Tirico are calling the shots for Eagles/Redskins with Lisa Salters doing the sideline work.
Our experts predict the Redskins win, covering the spread.
After the first game wraps, ESPN will jump over to San Diego and start that broadcast. The Texans are a 5-point road favorite against the Chargers… who have fallen into a quagmire of mediocrity as of late. That game will be called by the “back-up” broadcast team of Trent Dilfer and Chris Berman.
As of the end of last week, the game was still subject to blackout restrictions in San Diego since the game wasn’t sold out yet. Our experts are going with the Texans in this contest.
