The NFL’s decision to move the Patriots-Broncos game from Sunday to Monday also means a switch in networks and broadcast teams.
The game moves from CBS, where it was set to air in the 4:25 p.m. Sunday window, to ESPN and a 5 p.m. Monday start.
Chris Fowler, Kirk Herbstreit and reporter Laura Rutledge will call the game for ESPN. Fowler and Herbstreit are ESPN’s top college football broadcast team, but have done NFL games on occasion, including a Monday Night Football matchup between the Steelers and Giants in the season’s opening week.
Originally, Kevin Harlan, Trent Green and Melanie Collins were set to call the game for CBS.
