NEW YORK - FOX Sports today announces its broadcast teams for the network's 24th season of NFL coverage. The award-winning lineup touts seven distinguished crews featuring an exceptional mix of veteran voices and new personalities. The announcement was made today by John Entz, President of Production and Executive Producer, FOX Sports.

After calling a record-breaking Super Bowl LI, Emmy Award-winning play-by-play announcer Joe Buck and Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback Troy Aikman return for their 16th season as FOX Sports' lead NFL broadcast team. Erin Andrews again joins the league's longest-running duo, reporting from the sidelines. Buck, Aikman and Andrews open the season Week 1 with FOX's first edition of AMERICA'S GAME OF THE WEEK, as the Green Bay Packers face the Seattle Seahawks in a conference showdown from Lambeau Field on Sunday, Sept. 10, at 4:25 PM ET, highlighting the day's slate of NFL games.

Play-by-play announcer Kevin Burkhardt pairs with Charles Davis and veteran sideline reporter Pam Oliver. 2017 marks Oliver's 23rd season of FOX NFL coverage. The crew opens Week 1 with the Chicago Bears hosting the Atlanta Falcons at 1:00 PM ET.

Three-time Super Bowl Champion Mark Schlereth spends his first season in the booth alongside play-by-play announcer Dick Stockton and sideline reporter Shannon Spake. For Week 1, Stockton, Schlereth and Spake call the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Miami Dolphins at 1:00 PM ET. Additionally, FOX NFL game analyst Chris Spielman and sideline reporter Peter Schrager join play-by-play announcer Thom Brennaman and open the season in San Francisco for the Week 1 contest between the 49ers and Carolina Panthers at 4:25 PM ET.

Along with Stockton, play-by-play announcer Kenny Albert has the distinction of working FOX NFL games full-time since the network's inception in 1994. He returns for his 24th season and works alongside analyst Ronde Barber and sideline reporter Kristina Pink. The group calls their first game from the nation's capital; a clash between NFC East rivals when the Washington Redskins battle the Philadelphia Eagles at 1:00 PM ET.

Another seasoned group of veterans comes together with play-by-play announcer Chris Myers, analyst Daryl "Moose" Johnston and sideline reporter Laura Okmin, all of whom have been with the network for at least a decade.

Longtime play-by-play announcer Sam Rosen fills out FOX Sports' roster alongside analyst David Diehl and sideline reporter Jennifer Hale.
