The 101st NFL season gets underway Thursday as the Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs host the Houston Texans. NBC’s Sunday Night Football crew begins its 15th year following a record ninth consecutive season as the No. 1 show in primetime television. Play-by-play voice Al Michaels and analyst Cris Collinsworth describe how to strike the right tone during a pandemic. Michele Tafoya explains how she will be ‘sideline reporter’ in name only as no media will be on the field. Executive producer Fred Gaudelli says NFL Films audio will score the broadcasts while a new camera will provide an immersive overhead replay experience for the first time on an NFL broadcast.
