    Will this game be broadcast on a local channel as well as ESPN for people without cable?

    Yes:

    Monday Night Football:patriots at Saints - Patriots at Saints

    New England (7-3) at New Orleans (10-0). Tom Brady and Drew Brees star in a matchup of potent offenses. The Patriots have won their last six Monday-night games as they visit the Superdome for the first time since beating the Rams in Super Bowl XXXVI.

    Always as it's in the FCC rules regarding NFL broadcasting. Games on cable (ESPN, NFLN) must be shown in the local markets of the competing teams on over-the-air channels.

    If you're out-of-market, you're out of luck.

    Regards,
