Counting down to 'Monday Night Football'
Robert Griffin III and his surgically reconstructed right knee will be in the spotlight heading into the "Monday Night Football" opener.
Are you ready for some football? Relax. After tonight, we only have to make it through 18 more Monday nights until regular-season "Monday Night Football" returns to ESPN. Washington hosts Philadelphia in the first game of the doubleheader on Sept. 9. Houston travels to San Diego in the nightcap. And the news is even better if you're a true junkie. ESPN also televises a preseason Monday night game on Aug. 19 -- only 15 Mondays away -- when Pittsburgh visits Washington. Still not good enough? OK. It's not on Monday, but ESPN's preseason coverage actually starts Thursday, Aug. 8, and features Cincinnati at Atlanta.
