The television channel for the Monday night game between the Chiefs and the Ravens in Baltimore is the same network that will air all of the 2020 Monday Night Football games. And in connection with previously weak fixtures on Monday night, ESPN must be thrilled to have the right to show this game.
There's no more exciting quarterback matchup in the NFL this season than Patrick Mahomes on one side and Lamar Jackson on the other. It is the first game in NFL history to feature two former league MVPs under the age of 26.

ESPN is available on most cable systems in the United States. The network is also available via the satellite providers DirecTV (channel 206) and Dish Network (channel 140) as well as the IPTV providers AT&T U-verse (channel 602 for SD; channel 1602 for HD) and Verizon Fios (channel 70 for SD; Channel) available 570 for HD) and Google Fiber (channel 21).
ESPN has a new line of commentators for its "Monday Night Football" broadcasts in 2020 after switching from last year's duo of Joe Tessitore and Booger McFarland. Steve Levy (play-by-play), Brian Griese (analyst) and Louis Riddick (analyst) will be calling all games on Monday night for ESPN this season. Lisa Salters is still the network's side reporter.
In Canada, the game can be streamed live on DAZN and is also available on TSN and RDS.
