ESPN will kickoff its Monday Night Football 2007 preseason schedule with the Denver Broncos and San Francisco 49ers Monday, August 13 at 8 p.m. ET. The game will mark the debut of ESPN's new commentator team of Mike Tirico (play-by-play), analysts Ron Jaworski and Tony Kornheiser, and sideline reporters Suzy Kolber and Michele Tafoya.
