Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers look to add to their four-game winning streak this Sunday when they travel to New Orleans to face Drew Brees and the Saints on "Sunday Night Football" on NBC. Pre-game coverage begins with "Football Night in America" at 7 p.m. ET.

Rodgers has 18 touchdown passes and one interception this season - the best TD-to-INT ratio in NFL history through the first seven games of the season. In addition, in the Packers' four consecutive wins, Rodgers has thrown for at least three touchdown passes and no interceptions, which matches the longest single-season streak in league history (Tom Brady, 2007). Brees ranks fourth in the NFL in passing yards this season and has led the Saints to 10 consecutive home victories.

Calling Packers-Saints is Al Michaels (play-by-play), Cris Collinsworth and sideline reporter Michele Tafoya.

"Football Night in America" is hosted by Bob Costas, who will report from the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans. Costas will be joined on site by Collinsworth, Tafoya, two-time Super Bowl winner Hines Ward, and NBC Sports commentator Josh Elliott.

Dan Patrick co-hosts "Football Night" from NBC Sports Group's Studio 1 and will be joined by Super Bowl-winning head coach Tony Dungy, two-time Super Bowl winner Rodney Harrison, Mike Florio of "Pro Football Talk" on NBCSN and NBCSports.com, and Peter King of Sports Illustrated. Kathryn Tappen will report from University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, on the Eagles-Cardinals game.
