Colin Kaepernick and the defending NFC Champion San Francisco 49ers (1-0) travel to CenturyLink Field in Seattle to take on Russell Wilson and the Seahawks (1-0) on "Sunday Night Football." Coverage begins with "Football Night in America" at 7 p.m. ET on NBC.

Both teams enter this important NFC West matchup at 1-0 and look to keep their momentum going early in the season.

Calling 49ers-Seahawks is seven-time Emmy Award-winner Al Michaels (play-by-play), in his 28th season as the voice of the NFL's premier primetime package; 14-time Emmy Award-winner Cris Collinsworth, who has won the Emmy for Outstanding Event Analyst in each of his four seasons in the "Sunday Night Football" booth; and Emmy Award-winning sideline reporter Michele Tafoya.

"Football Night in America," the most-watched pre-game show in sports, is hosted by 25-time Emmy Award-winner Bob Costas, who will report from CenturyLink Field. Costas will be joined on site by Michaels, Collinsworth, and two-time Super Bowl winner Hines Ward.

Dan Patrick co-hosts "Football Night" from NBC's famed Studio 8H at 30 Rockefeller Plaza. He will be joined by Super Bowl-winning head coach Tony Dungy, two-time Super Bowl winner Rodney Harrison, Peter King of Sports Illustrated, Mike Florio of "Pro Football Talk" on NBCSN and NBCSports.com, and longtime NFL front office veteran and former NFL Executive of the Year Scott Pioli.
