The 2022 NFL season is the 53rd for Monday Night Football and ESPN is hosting a total of 17 games throughout the season. NFL Week 13 action is right around the corner as the games come thick and fast around the festive period.

There’s a few differences this year though as Joe Buck and Troy Aikman have joined the broadcast to call games after 20 years working with FOX.

Here, we take a look at the Monday Night Football game on 5th December (12/5/22).

Will the Manningcast be on in Week 13?

The alternative broadcast sees the legendary quarterbacks teaming up in the booth for the Monday Night Football game on ESPN2.

And the good news is the Manningcast will be back ESPN 2 tonight. The Manningcast will return in Week 13 for three consecutive weeks.
