ESPN2’s Manning Cast has become a cultural phenomenon in the 2021 football season, and the Pittsburgh Steelers will be a part of it for the first time on Monday night.
The broadcasts, featuring former NFL quarterbacks Eli and Payton Manning, along with a rotating panel of guests, is broadcast on ESPN2 as a secondary commentary feed. The brothers have worked a limited schedule this year, which did not include the Steelers’ first appearance on Monday Night Football on Nov. 8 against the Chicago Bears.
All Monday Night Football games, with or without the Mannings, are also called by the usual broadcast crew of Steve Levy, Brian Griese, Louis Riddick and Lisa Salters on ESPN.
This week, former Steelers head coach Bill Cowher, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, rapper Snoop Dogg, and Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers will join the Mannings for the broadcast.
The Steelers and Browns are set to kick off at 8:15 p.m., in what could be Ben Roethlisberger’s final game at Heinz Field.
