The Dec. 7 and Dec. 28 ESPN MNF games will be simulcast on ABC. ESPN also announced it will use a "Megacast" for its January wildcard playoff game. "For the wild card game in early January, ESPN will have its lead MNF team of Steve Levy, Louis Riddick and Brian Griese on its network, as well as ABC," reports New York Post's Andrew Marchand. "ESPN2 and Freeform will use a different set of commentators for the game, producing an alternative format as the network has done for college football’s national championship game." The extra effort is part of ESPN's plans to entice the NFL into giving the cable network and ABC a spot in the Super Bowl rotation in the upcoming TV rights deals.
