It's a MNF doubleheader, but the Bucs aren't getting the short end of the announcing stick.

For the second year, the NFL scheduled multiple overlapping Monday Night Football games.

Due to new broadcasting deals that spread coverage out to even more networks and added primetime playoff game to ESPN's schedule, the Monday Night Football schedule will continue to look a little different than it used to .

We've always had doubleheaders to start the MNF schedule, but this will be the second year where the overlapping games happen in more than one week. That means multiple broadcasts with two different versions of the announcing booth.

It's a bit of a complicated mess, but it's the world we live in now.

ESPN reveals announcers for Bucs-Eagles Week 3 MNF game

On Wednesday, ESPN revealed their announcing teams for the two doubleheaders scheduled for this season, one of which includes the Bucs Week 3 game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Thankfully -- or unfortunately, depending on who you are -- Joe Buck and Troy Aikman will be on the call for the Bucs-Eagles game.

In addition to revealing the Bucs will get the Buck/Aikman combo, ESPN unveiled a new B-Team for its Monday Night Football broadcasts. Chris Fowler is replacing Steve Levy and will be working double duty for two weeks. Fowler calls the Saturday Night college football game on ABC along with Kirk Herbstreit, which means they'll both pull double duty since the latter calls Amazon's Thursday Night Football with Al Micheals.

Louis Riddick and Dan Orlovsky round out the updated ESPN booth.
