The New Orleans Saints head into their final primetime game of the 2021 season, squaring off against the Miami Dolphins on Monday Night Football.

This game is intriguing, as both teams are 7-7 and riding win streaks. NOLA has won two straight games after losing five in a row and they’re on the outside looking in as far as the playoff picture is concerned. With Ian Book starting on Monday night, getting to eight wins won’t be an easy feat.

Miami was 1-7 and left for dead but they’ve risen from the dead, winning six straight games and sitting just outside of the AFC playoff picture. It’s been quite the comeback for the ‘Fins and they’ll continue to bring that fire when they come to the Caesars Superdome on Monday night.

Who is on the call for the Saints-Dolphins game?

With this game taking place on Monday night, we’ll get the ESPN crew of Steve Levy, Brian Griese, Louis Riddick, and Lisa Salters. Typically the regular crew is on ESPN while Peyton Manning and Eli Manning conduct their ManningCast on ESPN2. However, with this game taking place two days after Christmas, it shouldn’t come as a shock that the ManningCast won’t be on the air this week.

The Saints have played one other Monday night game this season, which came in Week 7 in Seattle in an offensive snoozefest. I won’t lie, I had the ManningCast on for that game because of how gross both offenses performed that week. It made the game a heck of a lot more entertaining, that’s for sure.

This game has a lot at stake though, which makes it more enticing. New Orleans is two spots outside of the playoff picture as of now and Miami is four spots out. Whoever wins this game will have a winning record and that will put them in a better spot as far as making the postseason goes.
