Maria Taylor has done it all for ESPN — she’s covered college and pro sports on the sideline and as a host, providing terrific commentary and doing interviews, including a memorably cringe-worthy one with John Calipari that she handled really well.
On Monday night, she joined the first game of the Monday Night Football doubleheader broadcast as the sideline reporter for the Giants and Steelers game, her first time covering an NFL game.
