NBC Sports
NBC will be the home for Super Bowl XLIX, the network’s 18th Super Bowl broadcast in its history. The game will air on on Sunday, February 1, 2015 from University of Phoenix Stadium, in Arizona. It will be one of three postseason games NBC will air, including a Wild Card Game and a Divisional playoff game the following week. They will no longer air the opening Wild Card game.

  • NBC will air 19 games this season, 17 Sunday Night Football games and two Thursday night games. Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth return to the booth for their sixth season, with sideline reporter Michele Tafoya in her fourth.
  • NBC’s Football Night in America pregame show airs at 7 pm ET with Bob Costas hosting from the game site. Dan Patrick hosts from New York, along with Tony Dungy and Rodney Harrison previewing the scheduled game and recapping the earlier games. Sports Illustrated’s Peter King and Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio are the show’s NFL Insiders, with Josh Elliot contributing.
  • Flex Scheduling will be tweaked for the new season, as the league can choose up to two games to flex from Week’s 5 to 10. The traditional flex scheduling format begins Week 11, with Week 17 open to a contest with direct impact to the playoffs.
