How to watch tonight's Seattle Seahawks vs. New York Giants game on Monday Night Football: Start time, livestream options

Monday Night Football Week 4 is going to feel good for Geno Smith. The Seattle Seahawks quarterback returns to Met Life Stadium Monday night for the Seahawks' MNF matchup against the New York Giants. It's his first time back since Week 7 of the 2016 NFL season, when he tore his ACL. Smith was the Jets starter then, a second-round pick chosen by the Jets in 2013. 

Smith's journey to filling Russell Wilson's shoes as the Seahawks quarterback has been bumpy at best. After playing for the Jets, he then went on to play for the Giants and the Los Angeles Chargers, all before serving as Wilson's backup in Seattle. The 32-year-old  patiently waited, eventually being named the team's starting QB by head coach Pete Carroll upon Wilson's departure to the Denver Broncos.

Monday, Smith returns to Met Life Stadium under much different circumstances. His tenure with the Jets was rocky from the start. Now, Smith has full command of the 2-1 Seahawks offense. The Giants are 1-2 coming into Week 4. If Geno Smith has his way, the Giants will end Week 4 with a 1-3 record -- a far cry from the last time he played at Met Life Stadium.

Watch NFL football live with a digital HDTV antenna

Anyone living in partially blocked-off area (those near mountains or first-floor apartments), a digital TV antenna may not pick up a good signal – or any signal at all. But for many homes, a digital TV antenna provides a seriously inexpensive way to watch college football without paying a staggering monthly fee.  Indoor TV antennas can also provide some much-needed TV backup if a storm knocks out your cable (or your cable company gets in a squabble with a network).

This amplified HDTV antenna, claims to have a 50-mile range and offers 36 channels. It's rated 4.0 stars by Amazon reviewers.

Said one Amazon customer, "When the price of this antenna dropped to $50, it was competitively priced with what you would find on the shelves at your local Radio Shack. If you're considering this product, you're probably already questioning your cable television bill and are looking around for a cheap way to get the Big 3 plus Fox and PBS. This antenna delivered that for us right out of the box."

Is this finally Dak Prescott's time to shine? The Cowboys are off to a splashy 2023 season start, 2-1 coming into Week 3. QB Dak Prescott has thrown just one pick to date, a huge improvement over last season where he led the league in interceptions thrown (ouch). Three games in, the Cowboys are primed to re-earn the title "America's Team." But ever since America's Sweetheart paid a visit to Arrowhead Stadium to visit rumored beau Travis Kelce, the Kansas City Chiefs may have taken the title.

Lamar Jackson/OBJ in Baltimore:  The Baltimore Ravens went through a series of staff and player changes during the offseason, designed to further QB Lamar Jackson's development in Baltimore. With a new coordinator a leveled-up offense, including the addition of Odell Beckham Jr., the Ravens are 2-1 this season. The tightened offense has the league on notice.

Is there life after Aaron Rodgers in New York? Four-time NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers' New York Jets debut didn't last long before Rodgers was down with a torn ACL. Jets backup QB Zach Wilson took over. Despite a rocky start, Wilson settled in and led the Jets to an OT win. Sadly, the Jets haven't won since and Wilson looks shaky, at best. Head coach Robert Saleh assures the team is primed to go all the way with or without Rodgers, but the same team went 7-10 in 2022, which doesn't bode well this season.

That 49ers defense is dangerous: Brock Purdy silenced naysayers last season when he took over after both QBs Trey Lance and Jimmy Garoppolo suffered season-ending injuries. Coach Shanahan traded Lance and gave Purdy the starting job this season with little trepidation that the last pick of the 2022 NFL Draft had what it takes. Shanahan's decision has paid off.  Three weeks in, the Niners, Philadelphia Eagles and Miami Dolphins are the only NFL teams who remain undefeated. Week after week, the Niners look unstoppable, and quite frankly, terrifying to face.
