TNT had its run with Sunday night football. Now it's ESPN's turn, starting Sunday with the Raiders against the Kansas City Chiefs at Kansas City. ESPN will unveil a new opening and will use a score-and-time graphic similar to Fox's. What ESPN should also do sometime is put Phil Simms in the booth with Joe Theismann and play-by-play man Mike Patrick. Simms and Theismann entertained reporters on a conference call this week, showing they click pretty well together.
