NEW YORK – Sept. 25, 2012 – Eli Manning and the defending Super Bowl Champion New York Giants travel to Philadelphia to take on Michael Vick and the NFC East rival Eagles on Sunday Night Football. Coverage begins Sunday with Football Night in America at 7 p.m. ET.
Both teams enter this important NFC East matchup at 2-1. The Giants look to keep the momentum going and capitalize on their two game win streak, as the Eagles try to rebound after a difficult loss last week in Arizona.
Calling Giants-Eagles is six-time Emmy Award-winner Al Michaels (play-by-play), in his 27th season as the voice of the NFL’s premier primetime package; 13-time Emmy Award-winner Cris Collinsworth, who has won the Emmy for outstanding event analyst in each of his three seasons in the Sunday Night Football booth; and sideline reporter Michele Tafoya, who, last year in her first season with SNF, won the inaugural Emmy Award for Outstanding Sports Reporter.
Football Night in America is hosted by 23-time Emmy Award-winner Bob Costas, who will report from Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, Pa. Costas will be joined on site by Michaels and Collinsworth and two-time Super Bowl winner Hines Ward.
Dan Patrick co-hosts Football Night from NBC’s Studio 8G at 30 Rockefeller Plaza on Sunday night. Patrick is joined by Super Bowl-winning head coach Tony Dungy, two-time Super Bowl winner Rodney Harrison, Peter King of Sports Illustrated, and Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk on NBC Sports Network and NBCSports.com. Carolyn Manno will report from Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wis., on the Saints-Packers game.
