NFL returns to NBC

The Hall of Fame game between the Philadelphia Eagles and Oakland Raiders will mark the return of NFL action to NBC after an absence of 3,113 days. The game, broadcast form Canton, Ohio, airs Sunday, August 6, at 8 p.m. Eastern time.

NBC Sports chairman Dick Ebersol boldly predicted that with pigskin in hand, NBC was headed for a Sunday-night touch down.

"This becomes the centerpiece of Sunday night television in the United States," Ebersol said in a statement.

Al Michaels, John Madden, and Andrea Kremer will call the action. They will be joined at halftime by Football Night in America hosts Bob Costas and Cris Collinsworth.

On Saturday, living legend and video game titan Madden will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. As coach, Madden helped the Raiders snag AFC Western Division titles and a win over the Minnesota Vikings in Super Bowl XI.
