It will be a showdown between Sam Bradford and Eli Manning under the bright lights of Monday Night Football in Week 4. Bradford was traded from the Philadelphia Eagles to the Minnesota Vikings when Teddy Bridgewater went down with injury, and now Bradford is set to face his former division rivals in the New York Giants.
Monday’s game is set for 8:30 p.m. ET and will be broadcast on television by ESPN. A live stream will be available online via WatchESPN, though it will require login credentials from a television or satellite provider and is subject to blackout rules.
Sean McDonough and Jon Gruden will serve as the announcing crew, with Lisa Salters as the sideline reporter.
Bradford hasn’t been spectacular for the Vikings, who are also without starting running back Adrian Peterson, but he’s played well enough to support the defense and the Vikings are out to a 3-0 start to their season.
The defense is key to their success. They average an NFL-best five sacks per game going into Week 4, and making Manning uncomfortable early and often will be their top goal. Like the Vikings, though, the Giants are also going with a backup running back due to Shane Vereen’s injury.
Vereen is likely done for the season, so it will be a battle of backup running backs on Monday. The Vikings have proven adept against both the run and pass thus far this season, but when they face Orleans Darkwa, they’ll be facing a relatively unknown player.
Below is all you need to watch Monday’s game.
