The final Monday Night Football game of 2018, on Christmas Eve, could be a huge present for the Arizona Cardinals.
That’s because, with a win by the Raiders, the Arizona Cardinals guarantee that they pick first in the 2019 NFL Draft, barring a win over the dreaded Seattle Seahawks next week.
Tonight’s game also will likely be the penultimate game for Broncos Coach Vance Joseph, who is expected to be let go next week, much like his counterpart in Arizona, Steve Wilks.
Here is everything you need to know about the miserable final Monday Night Football game of 2018.
Who: Denver Broncos (6-8) at Oakland Raiders (3-11)
When: Monday, December 24, 2018 at 6:15 p.m. Mile High time
Where: Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum in Oakland, California
Announcers: Joe Tessitore (play by play), Jason Witten (analyst), and Booger McFarland and Lisa Salters (sideline).
Odds: Broncos -3
MNF had to figure putting the Raiders in the final game of their 2018 schedule could be a bad idea, but this game is between two teams that are not competing for anything in 2018, which is the worst kind of football.
