There's a one-day grace period between the finish of the MLB postseason and beginning of the NBA's regular season. The World Series wrapped up with a four-game sweep by the San Francisco Giants Sunday night and the NBA's tip-off special is Tuesday night. That leaves Monday Night Football alone in the sports spotlight Monday:
San Francisco 49ers vs. Arizona Cardinals, 8:30 p.m. ET, ESPN: The Arizona Cardinals started out the season with four consecutive wins, but now need a win to avoid falling to .500 against a strong divisional opponent in the San Francisco 49ers. The 5-2 Niners have looked good for the most part, notably outscoring the New York Jets and Buffalo Bills 79-3 over a pair of games. They then fell flat in a rematch of last year's NFC Championship game against the New York Giants two weeks ago, only scoring a single field goal. San Francisco can extend their lead in the NFC West with a win, but Arizona will be tied if they come out with the win.
