The most talked about NFL telecast this season has been “Monday Night Football with Peyton and Eli.” Outside of the season opener between the Raiders and Ravens, which was simulcast on ESPN+, the “ManningCast” has only been on ESPN2.
For this week’s Monday Night Football matchup between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and New York Giants, ESPN will be offering “Monday Night Football with Peyton and Eli” to those with a subscription to ESPN+.
ESPN says that Monday Night Football with Peyton and Eli continues to be the most-watched alternate telecast in ESPN history. Last week’s Rams-49ers version delivered 1.55 million viewers on ESPN2, which was on par with the 1.59 million average across the six telecast this season.
The Mannings will host 10 games per season from a remote location and are joined current and former NFL players, as well as other miscellaneous celebrities. This deal will continue through the 2023 season and includes the newly added Monday Night Football Wild Card Game.
