Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints travel to AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, to take on Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys on "Sunday Night Football" this weekend. Coverage begins with "Football Night in America" at 7 p.m. ET on NBC. In addition, mun2 will present the Spanish-language telecast of Saints-Cowboys, its first-ever NFL game, to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month.

Last weekend, Romo and the Cowboys matched the largest comeback in team history, coming from 21 points behind to defeat the St. Louis Rams, 34-31. Dallas' win was highlighted by a 68-yard touchdown pass to Dez Bryant from Romo, who has a franchise-record 21 comeback victories in the fourth quarter or overtime. DeMarco Murray, who leads the league in rushing yards (385), ran for 100 yards in the win.

The Saints come off their first win of the season, 20-9 over the Minnesota Vikings, after losing their first two games by a combined five points.

"Football Night in America," the most-watched studio show in sports, is hosted by 26-time Emmy Award-winner Bob Costas, who will report from Bank of America Stadium Sunday. Costas will be joined on site by Collinsworth, Tafoya, two-time Super Bowl winner Hines Ward, and NBC Sports commentator Josh Elliott.
