  • Rick Reilly Feature – Broncos Eric Decker: In his weekly feature, ESPN.com columnist and Monday Night Countdown essayist Rick Reilly profiles Denver wide receiver Eric Decker, and how the movie-theater shooting in Aurora, Colo., brought back difficult memories having lived through a similar tragedy in high school.

Sunday NFL Countdown: Indy – Playing for Chuck Pagano; LeSean McCoy and his Football Role Model; Pete Carroll’s Celebrations; and More
Chris Berman, Cris Carter, Mike Ditka, Tom Jackson, Keyshawn Johnson, Suzy Kolber, Merril Hoge and Ron Jaworski will preview the NFL’s week six games on Sunday NFL Countdown Presented by IBM on October 14, at 10 a.m.  ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter and senior analyst Chris Mortensen will report the day’s news and updates.  

Correspondents Rachel Nichols (Indianapolis at New York Jets), Sal Paolantonio (Detroit at Philadelphia), Ed Werder (Dallas at Baltimore), Colleen Dominguez (New York Giants at San Francisco), and Josina Anderson (Green Bay at Houston) will report from games.  Highlights: 

  • Playing for Pagano:  Perhaps no Indianapolis Colts player had a better appreciation of the team’s dramatic, comeback win at home over the Packers last Sunday than wide receiver Reggie Wayne. The Colts dedicated the win to their head coach Chuck Pagano, who is fighting leukemia.   Wayne’s relationship with Pagano dates back to the mid-1990s when Pagano, then on the University of Miami’s coaching staff, recruited the young receiver. Wayne and Pagano have remained close since then.  Rachel Nichols explains how after one of the best performances of his career, Wayne is helping his coach and friend tackle the fight of his life.
  • Stopping on a Dime:  Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy is easily the best cut-back runner in the League today.  McCoy’s inspiration and role model is the best cut-back rusher of all time, former Detroit running back Barry Sanders. McCoy shares the secret to stopping on a dime and explains how the Lions’ Hall of Fame running back impacts his game.  The admiration is mutual, reports MNF sideline reporter Lisa Salters
  • Pete Carroll’s Celebrations:  If you want to know how the Seattle Seahawks are doing, just watch head coach Pete Carroll on the sidelines.  Now in his third season with the Seahawks, the 61-year-old coach has not lost any of his enthusiasm or changed his sideline demeanor from his days as a college coach at USC.  Countdown talks to Seahawks players about their exuberant head coach and the impact he has on the young team.
  • Eli Manning, Crash-Test Dummy:  On Sunday, the N.Y. Giants head back to San Francisco for the first time since the 2011 NFC Championship game where New York won but quarterback Eli Manning took a beating from the 49ers vaunted defense. Analyst Trent Dilfer examines how Manning’s body might hold up by going to a real crash-test dummy simulation.  

The program will also include recurring segments such as Cris Carter’s ‘Where You At?’, where the former standout wide receiver calls out underperforming players and Ron Jaworski and Meril Hoge’s matchup. In addition to discussing hot topics in the League, including: Green Bay’s 2-3 start and whether quarterback Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys can begin to turn around their season vs. the Ravens.

Jason Taylor to be Inducted into Miami Dolphins Honor Roll

ESPN analyst Jason Taylor, who spent 13 of his 15 NFL seasons with the Miami Dolphins, will be inducted into the team’s Honor Roll on Sunday, Oct. 14 — along with former teammate Zach Thomas — during the St. Louis Rams at Dolphins game.

Taylor ranks second all-time in team history with 204 games played and 186 starts. He was selected to six Pro Bowls and named the NFL Defensive Player of Year (2006) and the NFL Man of the Year (2007). He also owns numerous Dolphins career marks, including sacks (131), opponents’ fumble recoveries (27), fumble returns for touchdowns (six), defensive touchdowns (nine) and interceptions by a defensive lineman (seven). Additionally, his 139.5 career sacks are the sixth-highest total in NFL history.

Snickers NFL Matchup – Calvin Johnson in the Slot; Victor Cruz vs. Carlos Rogers; Aaron Rodgers Issues at QB; and More

NFL Matchup host Sal Paolantonio and analysts Ron Jaworski and Merril Hoge will preview the weekend’s key matchups by taking viewers inside the film room with X’s and O’s analysis Sunday, Oct. 14, on ESPN at 6:30 a.m. (ESPN2 at 8:30 a.m.).  Highlights:

  • Hoge’s Breakdown – Cowboys Pass Protection Issues: This week’s Hoge breakdown features a play that shows how the Cowboys’ inability to recognize and adjust to blitz pressure leads to breakdowns in protection and quarterback Tony Romo turnovers.
  • ‘X and O Files’ – Calvin Johnson in the Slot:  In this week’s ‘X and O Files,’ Jaworski explains how the Lions’ alignment of Calvin Johnson in the slot has allowed the wide receiver to beat a coverage designed to defend him.
  • Jaws’ Playbook – Aaron Rodgers Issues: Jaworski shows how Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers has struggled to make routine throws by breaking down an incompletion on a third down play where wide receiver Jordy Nelson would have scored an easy touchdown.
  • Coaches Clicker – Brady to Woodhead on Third and Long:  Hoge uses the Clicker to show how the Patriots’ backs and receivers are athletic enough to beat the coverage and stay open late in the down when quarterback Tom Brady is under heavy pressure.
  • ‘Shot Play’- Andrew Luck Deep Ball to Donnie Avery:  Hoge breaks down one of the Colts’ shot plays that featured max-protection and a designed roll out for quarterback Andrew Luck, giving wide receiver Donnie Avery a chance to get open down field.
  • ‘Game Within the Game’ – Victor Cruz vs. Carlos Rogers:  The film from last year’s games between the 49ers and the Giants shows the Giants favor the matchup of wide receiver Victor Cruz against corner back Carlos Rogers in the slot.  Jaworski breaks down two plays that show the different route combinations the Giants used to isolate Cruz on Rogers.
  • ‘Between the Lines’ – Philip Rivers/Malcolm Floyd versus the Blitz:  In this week’s ‘Between the Lines,’ Jaworski uses the telestrator to break down a 32-yard completion that shows quarterback Philip Rivers’ aptitude to recognize blitz pressure and make pre-snap adjustments at the line of scrimmage.

 Tony Romo and the Cowboys Host Jay Cutler and the Bears on ESPN’s Monday Night Football

In Monday Night Football’s week four game, Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys will host Jay Cutler and the Chicago Bears on October 1 at 8:30 p.m. ET. The Cowboys have 43 wins on MNF – the most of any team. Announcer Mike Tirico, analyst Jon Gruden and sideline reporter Lisa Salters will call the action. 

This NFC showdown marks Tirico’s 100th regular-season game as a MNF announcer. Tirico is only one of six MNF announcers to reach this milestone — Howard Cosell, Dan Dierdorf, Frank Gifford, Don Meredith and Al Michaels. Gifford — who worked 411 games — holds the record.

MNF will air on ESPN and ESPN Deportes. The game will also be available at WatchESPN.com (computers) and via the WatchESPN app (tablets) for fans who receive their video subscriptions from an affiliated provider.

Preceding the game, Chris Berman will host Monday Night Countdown (at 6:30 p.m., ESPN) with  analysts Cris CarterMike DitkaTom Jackson and Keyshawn Johnson and NFL Insiders Chris Mortensen and Adam Schefter. On-site host Stuart Scott, analysts Trent Dilfer and Steve Young, contributor Rick Reilly and Salters will join the Countdown crew from Cowboys Stadium.

The two-hour Monday Night Countdown will include the following segments:

  • ‘Gruden Extra’ with DeMarcus Ware:  The Cowboys All-Pro defensive end sits down for a one-on-one interview with MNF’s Gruden.
  • Soundtracks – Brandon Marshall:  The Chicago Bears wide receiver is wired for in-game audio during last week’s victory over the Rams.
  • Rick Reilly Feature – The Cowboys Cheerleaders: In his weekly feature, ESPN.com columnist and Monday Night Countdown essayist Rick Reilly presents the story of the Cowboys cheerleaders, one of the most famous cheerleading squads in the world.

Sunday NFL Countdown: Larry Fitzgerald – The Conductor; J.J. Watt Swats; Panthers Greg and Kara Olsens’ Journey; and More

Chris Berman and analysts Cris Carter, Mike Ditka, Tom Jackson and Keyshawn Johnson, joined by Suzy Kolber, Merril Hoge and Ron Jaworski (on an adjoining set) will preview week four on Sunday NFL Countdown Presented by IBM on September 30 at 10 a.m.  ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter and senior analyst Chris Mortensen will report the day’s news and updates.

Correspondents Ed Werder (Carolina at Atlanta), Josina Anderson (New England at Buffalo), Colleen Dominguez (San Francisco at New York Jets), Rachel Nichols (New Orleans at Green Bay), and Sal Paolantonio (New York Giants at Philadelphia) will report from five games.  Highlights:

  • Larry Fitzgerald – The Conductor:  Before leading the undefeated Arizona Cardinals to a 27-6 home victory over the Philadelphia Eagles last week, wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald conducted the Phoenix Symphony’s opening night performance of the national anthem.  As Greg Garber reports, conducting the orchestra is a fitting metaphor to Fitzgerald’s career and the Cardinals’ season so far.
  • Watt’s swats:  With 5.5 sacks this season, Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt is becoming one of the best defensive players in the game.  More than the sacks, it is Watt’s ability and passion for knocking down passes that has made the experience of facing the second-year player miserable for opposing offenses in the league, reports Countdown’s Tom Jackson.
  • Osi vs. McCoy:  Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy led the NFL in touchdowns in 2011. New York Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora, once a NFC sacks leader, has two Super Bowl rings.  Neither seems to like each other that much.  MNF sideline reporter Lisa Salters, in an E:60 exclusive, explores the Twitter feud between the two players.
  • The Olsens:  Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen and his wife, Kara, are preparing for a tough journey as one of their twins Kara is carrying has been diagnosed with a rare and deadly heart defect in-utero.  Reporter Chris Connelly sits down with the couple to find out how they’ve been trying to prepare, and to discuss the short- and long-term prognosis for their unborn son.

The three-hour program will also include recurring segments such as Ron Jaworski and Merril Hoge’s ‘Eye in the Sky’ – an Xs and Os look at key plays and formations; Cris Carter’s ‘Where You At?’, pointing out underperforming players; and coach Mike Ditka’s ‘Stop It’, an admonition from the legendary coach to select teams, execs, players, coaches, et al, to cease from unflattering decisions and actions.

Snickers NFL Matchup – Cam Newton vs. the Blitz; Julius Peppers vs. Cowboys Offensive Line; 49ers Bruce Miller’s Wheel route; and More

NFL Matchup host Sal Paolantonio and analysts Ron Jaworski and Merril Hoge will preview the weekend’s key matchups by taking viewers inside the film room with X’s and O’s analysis Sunday, Sept. 30, on ESPN at 3:30 a.m. (ESPN2 at 8:30 a.m.).  Highlights:

  • Hoge’s Breakdown – Cam Newton vs. the Blitz: Hoge shows a New York Giants blitz package last week that used timing to disrupt Panthers quarterback Cam Newton’s passing, and contends the Panthers must protect Newton from such plays to be successful as a passing team.
  • ‘Tell Me Something I Don’t Know’ – Cardinals Blitz Scheme:  In a new segment titled ‘Tell Me Something I Don’t Know,’ Jaworski explains the complex blitz schemes that make the Cardinals a dominant defensive team.
  • Jaws’ Playbook – Bruce Miller’s Wheel Route: Jaworski goes inside San Francisco’s playbook to show how their downfield passing is predicated upon their ability to execute staple plays, such as the wheel route with fullback Bruce Miller.
  • Coaches Clicker: Giants Run Game:  As injury sidelined Ahmad Bradshaw, running back Andre Brown emerged as an effective alternative last Thursday as the New York Giants beat Carolina Panthers.  Hoge pulls the ‘Coaches Clicker’ to show the nuances of New York’s blocking scheme that opened holes for Brown’s 100-yard rushing performance.
  • Eagles Play-action Boot:  Jaworski reveals how pass-protection is key to the Eagles’ tendency of opening games on the offense with a play-action boot. 
  • ‘Game Within the Game’ – Julius Peppers vs. Cowboys Offensive Line:  After studying film which identified how porous the Cowboys offensive line was last Sunday vs. the Buccaneers, Hoge will show how Chicago Bears creative use of defensive end Julius Peppers would be the interesting ‘Game Within the Game’ on MNF.
  • ‘Between the Lines’ – Andre Johnson:  In this week’s ‘In Between the Lines,’ Jaworski uses the telestrator to dissect the impact of Houston’s use of run-action play with wide receiver Andre Johnson on their downfield passing game.

ESPN NFL Analyst and Former Pro Bowl Safety Brian Dawkins to Have Jersey Retired on Sunday

ESPN NFL analyst and nine-time Pro Bowl safety Brian Dawkins will have his No. 20 jersey retired on Sunday, Sept. 30, by the Philadelphia Eagles. Selected by the Eagles in the second round of the 1996 NFL Draft, Dawkins played for the team for 13 seasons. Prior to being honored at Lincoln Financial Field, Dawkins will stop at the Dover International Speedway where he’s invited to be the AAA 400 Grand Marshal at the Sprint Cup Series race.

Packers-Seahawks Delivers 12.0 Rating and 16.2 Million Viewers

Postgame SportsCenter is Most-Viewed and Second Highest-Rated in the Show’s History 

Last night’s ESPN Monday Night Football game – the Seattle Seahawks’ controversial 14-12 last-second victory over the Green Bay Packers – helped ESPN win the night among all networks – broadcast or cable – in households, viewers and all key male and adult demos. Similarly, MNF led all television programs.

The game earned a 12.0 household coverage rating (10.3 US), representing an average of 11,751,000 households (16,167,000 viewers – P2+), the third largest audience among viewers (second among households) for any program on cable television in 2012, according to Nielsen. The game peaked between 11:45 p.m. – 12 a.m. ET (the final 15 minutes of the game) at a 13.8 household coverage rating. 

ESPN’s BCS National Championship Game (Alabama-LSU, 1/9/12) ranks as the most-viewed program of Nielsen’s year (24,214,000 viewers), followed by the network’s 2012 Rose Bowl (17,558,000 – Wisconsin-Oregon, 1/2/12).

In Milwaukee, the game delivered a 15.1 rating on ESPN and a 37.8 rating on WISN-ABC, for a combined 52.9 rating in the market.

The previously most-viewed SportsCenter followed the MNF game on Nov. 14, 2011 (Minnesota vs. Green Bay): 4,470,000 households and 5,940,000 viewers.

The postgame SportsCenter also ranks as the second highest-rated SportsCenter (airing 20 minutes or longer) on record behind the Christmas night (12/25) show in 1994 that followed ESPN’s NFL telecast between the Detroit Lions and Miami Dolphins (5.3 rating).

  • Demaryius Thomas: After catching the 80-yard winning touchdown in overtime as the Broncos upset the Steelers in last year’s AFC Wild Card game, wide receiver Demaryius Thomas has become one of quarterback Peyton Manning’s favorite targets.  Thomas’ rise to stardom is a testament to his drive and perseverance.  His mother and grandmother are currently in prison for selling illegal drugs. Tom Jackson chronicles Demaryius’ rise, from a shattered home to an NFL starting wide receiver.
  • Vernon Davis:  A memorable moment from the 2008 season was San Francisco 49ers head coach Mike Singletary banishing tight end Vernon Davis from the field during a game. Since then, Davis has become a leader and has cited that moment as a turning point in his career. On Sunday, Davis and the 49ers visit the Minnesota Vikings, where Singletary is now an assistant coach. Trent Dilfer looks back at that moment and the different paths Davis and Singletary have taken since the incident.
  • E:60 – Rob Gronkowski:  Countdown will air part of a Jeremy Schaap E:60 feature, “Get Gronk’d,” with arguably the best tight end in the game – one who hardly fits the Patriots’ mold.  In the feature, Emmy Award winning reporter Schaap discovers what it’s like hanging around with the Gronk, especially on a shopping expedition.  The full feature will air Tuesday, Sept. 25, at 7pm on ESPN. (E:60 is ESPN’s Sports Emmy Award winning primetime news magazine.)
  • Eric Mangini Film Room – Patriots at Ravens: Former member of the Patriots coaching staff Eric Mangini will present an Xs and Os analysis of the Patriots at Ravens game and offer key matchups to watch.
  • Hot Topics:  Countdown will debate the impact of the replacement referees on the NFL’s image and the integrity of the game; whether Bears quarterback Jay Cutler’s public berating of his offensive lineman will lead him to lose the team; and more.

Snickers NFL Matchup – Cardinals ‘Cover 2 Trap’; Jaworski Playbook on Tony Romo; Hoge on Peyton Manning; and More

NFL Matchup host Sal Paolantonio and analysts Ron Jaworski and Merril Hoge will preview week three action on Sunday, Sept. 16, on ESPN at 3:30 a.m. (ESPN2 at 8:30 a.m.), taking viewers inside the film room with X’s and O’s analysis of the weekend’s key matchups.  Highlights:

  • X and O Files – Cardinals “Cover 2 Trap”:  In last Sunday’s upset victory in New England, the Cardinals’ defense beat quarterback Tom Brady using disguised coverage.  Jaworski goes inside the Cardinals defensive matchup with the Eagles to see if they can have similar success this week.
  • Game within the Game – Chandler Jones:  As the Patriots head into Baltimore for a rematch of last year’s AFC Championship game, Jaworski shows how New England’s rookie defensive end Chandler Jones could be a tough matchup for Baltimore’s offensive line.
  • Jaws Playbook – Tony Romo’s Pocket Movement: Jaworski demonstrates how Dallas quarterback Tony Romo’s movement in the pocket creates big plays downfield.
  • Hoge on Peyton Manning:  Breaking down play from Monday Night Football that led to Atlanta’s second interception of quarterback Peyton Manning, Hoge, in “Hoge Breakdown,” shows how the Texans’ defense must confuse Manning, much like the Falcons did, to be successful.
  • Hoge on Seattle’s Blitz:  Hoge shows how the Seahawks’ blitz schemes are fundamental to their ability to have success against a high-flying offense such as quarterback Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers.
  • In-between the Lines – Alex Smith’s Pre-snap Adjustment:  Hoge and Jaworski go “in-between the lines” to show how quarterback Alex Smith’s pre-snap adjustments have become an integral part of the San Francisco 49ers offense.
  • Beyond the Film Room – Philip Rivers:  After their 2-0 start, the Chargers face Atlanta Falcons defense coming off three interceptions in one quarter vs. Denver’s Peyton Manning.  NFL Matchup shows quarterback Philip Rivers’ proficiency during his three-touchdown performance against the Titans.

Broncos-Falcons Delivers 11.6 Rating and 15.5 Million Viewers

Last night’s ESPN Monday Night Football game – an Atlanta Falcons’ 27-21 victory over Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos – helped ESPN win the night among all networks – broadcast or cable – in households, viewers and all key male and adult demos. Similarly, MNF led all television programs.

The game earned a 11.6 household coverage rating (10.0 US), representing an average of 11,411,000 households (15,514,000 viewers – P2+), the fourth largest audience among viewers (third among households) for any program on cable television in 2012, according to Nielsen.

ESPN’s BCS National Championship Game (Alabama-LSU, 1/9/12) ranks as the most-viewed program of Nielsen’s year (24,214,000 viewers), followed by the network’s 2012 Rose Bowl (17,558,000 – Wisconsin-Oregon, 1/2/12) and ESPN’s 2011 MNF season-finale (15,638,000 – Atlanta-New Orleans, 12/26/11).

In Denver, the game delivered a 18.9 rating on ESPN and a 21.4 rating on KTVD-IND, for a combined 40.3 in the market. In Atlanta, the game delivered a 12.5 rating on ESPN and a 16.3 rating on WSB-ABC, for a combined 28.8 in the market.

Through the first two weeks of the NFL season (three games), ESPN’s MNF is averaging a 9.3 rating (8.1 US), 9,138,000 households and 12,410,000 viewers, virtually even with last season.

NEXT WEEK ON MNF

Next week, ESPN’s MNF returns with the reigning NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers traveling to the Pacific Northwest to play rookie quarterback Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks at 8:30 p.m. ET.
