ESPN adds more NFL Stars to 2017 Monday Night Football Red Carpet Open

ESPN’s Monday Night Football will kick off the 2017 NFL season with an updated red carpet open featuring even more star players than a year ago. The slideshow above highlights the players who filmed with ESPN this offseason and will be part of the open.

It will debut Monday before ESPN’s season-opening MNF doubleheader – New Orleans Saints vs. Minnesota Vikings (6:55 p.m. ET) followed by Los Angeles Chargers vs. Denver Broncos (10:15 p.m.). After week 1, the open will air at 8:15 p.m. ET when ESPN kicks off its weekly MNF telecast.

ESPN’s in-house Creative Services group – led by senior director of motion graphics Mike “Spike” Szykowny and creative director Lucas Nickerson – created the open with Motomo Studios and Mindcastle.
