Game info and how to watch

The San Francisco 49ers and the Green Bay Packers kick off Week 6 of the 2018 NFL regular season on Oct. 15, 2018, at 8:15 p.m. ET, at Lambeau Stadium in Green Bay, WI.

The game will be televised live on ESPN across the United States and in many international locations. The broadcast will feature play-by-play announcer Joe Tessitore and color analyst Jason Witten, as well as an on-field analyst who won’t actually be on the field. Anthony “Booger” McFarland, despite his fear of heights, will instead provide insight from the sideline as he sits at a desk that’s suspended in the air while attached to a moving crane.

Without New Orleans Saints family man — and quarterback — Drew Brees to celebrate, expect ESPN’s new Monday Night Football crew to focus heavily on Rodgers’ grit, toughness and passing prowess throughout the game.

The Packers’ “All-Name Team” of backup wide receivers should provide some pronunciation challenges for the crew, and some entertainment value for those who choose to listen to the broadcast commentary. Generally, I recommend against muting the audio during the game, given Witten’s propensity for accidentally dropping inappropriate comments, as the former tight end continues his transition from the playing field to the broadcast booth.

You can stream ESPN’s live television broadcast of the Niners’ matchup on your phone, computer or media streaming device via the official NFL app.
