The trio, along with reporters Suzy Kolber and Michele Tafoya, will be at the new Cowboys Stadium to broadcast the Carolina-Dallas game at 7:30 p.m. Monday. It could be another close game; the series’ first three games have been decided by a total of nine points.

Editor's Note: The story originally said that Jon Gruden was a member of ABC's Monday Night Football team. Monday Night Football now airs on ESPN.
