The NFL closes out the first week of the 2020 regular season with its now annual Monday Night Football doubleheader. The second half of the evening features the Denver Broncos hosting the Tennessee Titans. The game kicks off at 10:10 p.m. ET and airs on ESPN.
The Titans are running back a lot of what we saw last season, with Ryan Tannehill and Derrick Henry both getting big extensions. The Broncos are looking to build around second year quarterback Drew Lock, but they’re potentially going to be without his star receiver, Courtland Sutton, due to a shoulder injury suffered in practice last week.
Plenty will be watching the game on TV, but if you’ve cut the cord on cable or otherwise don’t prefer cable, or just won’t be in front of your television, there are several options for live streaming the game. ESPN will stream the game on WatchESPN, but that requires a cable log-in. If you don’t have a cable subscription, there are quite a few streaming services offering free trials for one or two weeks. You can check YouTube TV, Hulu with Live TV, AT&T TV Now, FuboTV, or Sling TV and be able to stream Monday Night Football this week.
The game is often a little bit delayed on live streams, but usually it’s only between 30 and 60 seconds behind the TV broadcast. That can impact you if you’re on Twitter during the game, but otherwise it’s an easy option.
The Titans are a field goal road favorite, and this is a tough game to figure out. Tennessee never quite sold me much of last year, but they just kept on winning with Henry and Tannehill. If Courtland Sutton was healthy, I’d lean Denver. With Sutton uncertain, I’m playing it safe and taking the points. I’d lean under as well on 41 points.
