Monday Night Football can be a mixed bag at this point in the season. These matchups are chosen during the summer and that’s that, so teams that the league expects to be good sometimes aren’t. For example, this Monday’s game between the 4-6 Green Bay Packers and 5-5 Philadelphia Eagles.
Not the marquee matchup one might have envisioned back in September.
ESPN knows they have a crap game on their hands and they apparently aren’t trying to hide it. Check out this promo for the game, which features the tag “Sometimes desperation can be motivation.”
In other words, these teams suck and have to win this game or their season is over. That’s a great summary of where the Packers are right now.
Unfortunately, despite being desperate, they haven’t shown any motivation in a while.
