If you didn't have any plans for tonight before you started reading this sentence, now you do. Here are the best sports on television tonight, and where and when you can watch them. All times Eastern. Follow the links to learn more about each of the teams listed below. Let's get right into it.
Redskins vs. Cowboys: Yup, the Monday Night Football game is the marquee one in D.C. sports on Monday night. Can the Redskins really go to 3-0? Will Tony Romo actually play well after suffering a broken rib against the San Francisco 49ers? How will Washington D.C. react, win or lose? Will there be something that happens to reignite the old rivalry? What nice things will Jon Gruden say about Mike Shanahan, Rex Grossman and/or John Beck? (8:30 p.m., ESPN)
Nationals vs. Marlins: Can Washington get to .500 this season? The Nationals will need to sweep to make it happen, but hey, it's possible. (7 p.m., MASN2)
Blue Jackets vs. Capitals: Washington is still winless in the preseason, and fans hoping to see a win won't be able to do so on television.
