On Monday, September 21 at 8:30 p.m. ET, the New York Jets will go head to head against the Indianapolis Colts on Monday Night Football. Monday Night Football is one of America’s most watched regular TV events. It provides something to look forward to on Monday, which, let’s face it, is nobody’s favorite day.
Of course, Monday Night Football airs on ESPN, a cable channel, but if you’re a cord cutter, don’t worry. If you don’t have cable, you can still watch the game with the help of various streaming services – we’ll go over your options in detail below.
New York Jets vs. Indianapolis Colts Preview
For the New York Jets, change is in the air this season. With the release of head coach Rex Ryan at the end of the 2014 season, fans look towards new coach Todd Bowles to steer the Jets to a winning season. After several years of disappointing performance, finishing 8-8 in 2013 and 4-12 in 2014, Jets fans are hoping that the new head coach and significant lineup changes will bring some power to their 2015-2016 season.
The Indianapolis Colts, on the other hand, have had an impressive run during the last few seasons. They’ve been the AFC South champions for two years running, with an 11-5 record for both the 2013 and 2014 seasons. Their Super Bowl aspirations last year were cut short by the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship. For this upcoming season, fans hope the team can replicate past performance, and hopefully make it to the Super Bowl.
This matchup promises to be an exciting Monday Night Football game!
