Who plays on ‘Monday Night Football’ tonight? Time, TV channel, schedule for NFL Week 12

Carson Wentz and the Eagles have a chance to move back into first place in the NFC East on Week 12’s “Monday Night Football.”

Philadelphia (3-6-1) hosts Seattle (7-3) to close out Week 12 on Monday night. Wentz has struggled this season and is coming off his sixth two-interception game of the season in a Week 10 loss to the Browns, so he’ll have to be better to contend with Russell Wilson. The Seahawks have divisional supremacy to play for as well, as a win keeps them in the driver’s seat in the NFC West.

Wentz could be looking at an antidote when the Eagles host the Seahawks, though, since Seattle has the worst pass defense in football. If Wentz can’t put it together through the air against the Seahawks, it might truly be time for Jalen Hurts to get a long look from Doug Pederson.

Below is more about the matchup, plus everything to know about how to watch “Monday Night Football.”
