Host Suzy Kolber and a cast of thousands preview the Monday night NFL matchup, which, not coincidentally, also airs on ESPN. Kolber is joined by, among others, former NFL stars Randy Moss, Steve Young and Charles Woodson to analyze every last morsel of information pertaining to Monday night's combatants, plus discuss the latest news that developed out of Sunday's action. Also contributing are NFL information men Chris Mortensen, Adam Schefter and Louis Riddick.
This longtime ESPN staple doesn't air in prime time anymore, and the original tag team of Chris Berman and Tom Jackson are no longer involved. But it lives on, albeit in a slightly different form, with host Trey Wingo presenting a shorter-form highlights package of Sunday's NFL action coupled with more in-depth analysis from former players Jeff Saturday and Tim Hasselbeck.
The NFL is a 24/7 business. There's an offseason built into the league's calendar, of course, but the news cycle never seems to stop, and fan interest remains high all year. In that light, ESPN presents "NFL Insiders," a weekday program that not only airs both in-season as well as when the stadiums are dark, but also is unique in that its cast includes nary an ex-NFL player. Hosted on a rotating basis by Suzy Kolber and Wendi Nix, the hourlong episodes feature daily contributors, such as reporters Chris Mortensen and Adam Schefter and former NFL executive Bill Polian, who have insiders' access to breaking league news and firsthand knowledge of how teams go about their business. ESPN.com senior writer John Clayton and NFL insider Ed Werder also weigh in at times with news and views, as do a roster of other journalists and former front office executives.
An NFL Films production, "NFL Matchup" is definitely a show for football junkies. Unlike traditional football preview programs, this one gives fans an in-depth look at some of Sunday's games by breaking down the strategy and tactics -- the Xs and Os -- through the exclusive use of team-supplied footage. That type of film study is a forte of former NFL player and executive Louis Riddick and NFL Films producer Greg Cosell, whose work is featured here alongside host Sal Paolantonio.
Wendi Nix and Suzy Kolber take turns at the helm of this weekday show, directing a rotating cast of analysts who break down the latest NFL news and offer views on the players, coaches, teams and even front-office personnel. In the end, you'll know who's hurt, who's hot and who may be making headlines.
