NEW YORK � April 2, 2007 � "NBC Sunday Night Football" will kick off the preseason in San Diego as the Chargers host the Seattle Seahawks on Aug. 12; coverage begins at 8 p.m. ET. New head coach Norv Turner leads the Chargers, who fell to the New England Patriots last season in a classic AFC Playoff. The Seahawks, who defeated the Dallas Cowboys last season in one of the most talked about playoff games of the year, fell to Chicago in overtime at Soldier Field to end their season. The preseason schedule was announced by the NFL today.

Other "NBC Sunday Night Football" preseason tilts include QB Eli Manning and the New York Giants at Baltimore Ravens Aug. 19; and last season's surprise contender Philadelphia Eagles visiting the Pittsburgh Steelers Aug. 26. All games start at 8 p.m. ET on NBC. Al Michaels (play-by-play), John Madden (analyst) and Andrea Kremer (sideline reporter) will call the action.

The NFL announced last week that the Super Bowl champion Indianapolis Colts will host the New Orleans Saints on the Thursday night "NFL Kickoff," Sept. 6 on NBC; "NFL Kickoff Weekend" continues Sunday Night, Sept. 9 on NBC with a classic NFC clash between the New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys at Texas Stadium. The rest of the 2007 regular-season schedule will be completed and announced in April.

"NBC Sunday Night Football," the premier primetime game of the week, is preceded by the "Football Night in America" studio show, which kicks off NBC's regular season coverage each Sunday at 7 p.m. The unprecedented six-year NFL deal includes innovative flexible scheduling and continues through the 2011 season with Super Bowls in 2009 and 2012. NBC has assembled the most honored broadcast team ever: Joining Al Michaels, the commentator called "TV's best play-by-play announcer" by the Associated Press, and John Madden, the most honored NFL broadcaster of all time with 15 Emmy Awards, are Bob Costas, the most honored studio host of all time with 19 Emmy Awards, who hosts NBC's "Football Night in America" studio show alongside co-host Cris Collinsworth, the most honored studio analyst in history with six Emmy Awards; and analysts Tiki Barber, a three-time NFL Pro Bowler for the New York Giants, and Jerome Bettis, one of the most popular players in recent NFL history. "NBC Sunday Night Football" coverage also includes sideline and feature reporter Andrea Kremer, whom the Los Angeles Times has called "the best TV interviewer in the business of covering the NFL." Peter King, who covers the NFL for Sports Illustrated and is considered one of the country's foremost NFL reporters, serves as a reporter for the "Football Night in America" studio show.
